Keith Richard's Stylish Dark Library


I am totally smitten with Keith Richard's dark library. I love the colors, all the beautiful wood, and the protective den like vibe it gives off. Plus, he appears to have the same appreciation for leather-bound hardcovers that I do. This is definitely the look I will be going for when Mr. Whimsy and I purchase a home. Except in my dream library the accents are a deep dusty pink.

Do you have a celebrity library you're crushing on?

    2. This is EXACTLY what I thought when I saw the pic. "Words, man." Notice he posed with his guitar?? :)

      Delete
    3. LOL Good point! The guitar pose gives the vibe that he writes there.

  2. Oh wow, I love that "old world" look...makes it look like he's been building his library over centuries :)

    I love the messy look but truth is that my OCD wouldn't allow me to have my personal library like that, lol.

      I love you for writing that. Because mine wouldn't either.

    1. So fresh and sleek! I love the rolling ladder. I've always itched to own one. Plus it really makes use of space taking it alll the way to the ceiling. FAB choice! :)

      Delete
  5. Wow! I could spend all sorts of time just sitting in there and going through his collection. My fingers are itching to reach out and grab things off his shelves:)

    1. Right? The only problem would be pulling my self out of there.

  8. I'm with you on the pink! I love this library.

  9. A touch of pink would be good, a little girly is always good. :)

  10. What a fantastic space! I would have the drapes in a lighter color and open to let in the sunshine.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The space does look very protective. I love that. No zombie would stand a chance a getting to me if I barricaded myself in that room. :P

    And you can never go wrong with dark pink.

  12. That's a nice looking library...its cramped but not messy.

    ReplyDelete
  13. No, I do not have a celebrity library I am crushing on, but if I have one this would be it! :)

  14. This is gorgeous! I wish all books came leatherbound ...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh that is fabulous! I love it love it love it. I could totally curl up in that room. I've never stalked a celebs shelves, but maybe I should...

  16. Love it! It's just the perfect amount of messy.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, I don't know a whole lot about Keith Richards but from what I do know, I'm surprised he has such a library like this! Pretty swank! I wonder how many of those books he's actually read or if they're just there for decoration!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good question! :) In my mind he's a secret classics reader.

      Delete
  18. I do love the room... but when I see that many 'leather-bound books' I start hearing Will Ferrell's voice in Anchorman, and it won't turn off!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the fact that it looks lived in!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love everything about this room...but I would need my own right across the hall...it would be whitish and totally the opposite...I actually don't think I have a celebrity in mind that I am sure really reads...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Any room that has floor to ceiling bookshelves and comfy lounging spots works for me! :)

    1. Right? I'm a sucker for floor to ceiling bookshelves.

  22. amazing--but I would hate to dust the shelves :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like Neil Gaiman's shelves. :)

    Keith's shelves are pretty snazzy too!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't know why, but this picture makes me laugh. The skull with the sailors hat along with the sign that says: Keith Richard Main Offender, while he plays his guitar barefoot. It all makes me google. I like the room though. Wish I had a room where I was surrounded by books.

    1. Right on. I can get that. I like at how at home he looks. :)

  25. I love this . I wonder if he planned it or if it just unfolded like this.

    ReplyDelete
  26. He has the BEST library!! I would love to sit there surrounded by all those books, I am officially jealous of him :)

  31. I LOVE checking out other peoples libraries. When I buy my own home and can afford it, I'd love to have a large library full of all my favourites. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Neat library! I would think he would read! lol I've never checked out celebs libraries. That would be cool if you could find the link. I'd like to see other libraries like this one.

    1. Right :) I think so too.

      I've never found a single link but you will find all kinds of cool stuff if you Google it :)

    1. Me too :) My only problem would be pulling myself out of there for food.

  34. Oddly enough, this library actually reminds me of my hubby's uncles home. He has an office that looks almost exactly like this...it's crazy! I always marvel at it, especially because it's the least used room in the home. Which is totally sad! I'd use it every day. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOL! I never pictured Keith Richards as a reader... :) Not judging...just saying. :)

    I would die for a library...at all... let alone one like this. Great idea to show various celebrity personal libraries. Kinda fascinating.
