This is one of the most beautiful dining libraries I've ever seen. I love the contrast of light and dark, formality and informality and the scale of the space. Pretty much perfection. This image comes from an incredible blog called Beautiful Libraries with a very accurate tagline, The Most Beautiful Libraries in the World. The blog mentions this library is in Mel Gibson's Connecticut mansion which was for sale back in 2009. If you love libraries, this blog will be a joy to visit.

Hope you have a great weekend. I'm thankful to have woken up this morning to a voice mail from my husband that he got to his hotel near Utica NY at 3:30 am after driving through some serious ice and snow that started in Binghampton. D - love, love, love you. He's there to celebrate his Mom's 80th birthday. Happy Birthday Pat!
