If I Could Have Just One Room…

If you could have just one room, all to yourself, what would be in it? What colours would you choose? What would it smell like?

I’m daydreaming a little. This is my, ‘when we win the lottery…’ room. And so what would it be like?

I make no secret of the fact that I’m a bookworm.

If I could have just one room, all to myself, I’d want a library. I’d love a library.Β It’d be neat and tidy, just because that’s who I am! I’d enjoy putting all of my books in order (when I was little, I colour-coded every one of my books and they all sat on my shelves in that order – geek as a kid, too!), and then I’d have to have huge, comfortable furniture in there, and cosy throws and beanbags, with lots of lamps and scented candles to make it all feel snuggly and smell gorgeous.

I get carried away looking at photos of them, and to those of you reading this that can take or leave a book, I can only apologise as I’m about to share a few pictures that will probably appear so very dull to you, but to me, they’re just ‘wow’.


There’d be walls lined with hundreds of books (I was imagining the wonderful room, and now I’m imagining the joy that going out and buying all of those books would bring!), and I think I’d go with creams and pinks, and a huge L-shaped sofa and a cuddle chair, too. I’d ‘need’ big cushions in there and I’m thinking 3 lamps dotted about, so I can create a variety of ambiances, and sit in lots of different places and still get good light for my reading. I can feel myself getting carried away, so I’ll reign it in now… πŸ˜‰

As I write this, I’m becoming curious about what other people would choose for themselves. The curiosity is forcing me to start a Meme and a linky up, I think…Yep, I need to know, people.

I’m going to get us started by tagging:

Please come and share with us what that special ‘If I Could Have Just One Room…’ would be, tag a few more people, and link back, as I’m very curious to know. Oh, and you needn’t wait to be tagged to join in, let your imaginations run wild and share away!
