My BookStore Dream

So, a while ago I mentioned my dream to own a bookstore. My love of books is even greater than my love of photography, which... let's be honest, is immense. The bookstore idea wins out by a hair over my wish to be a photographer for national geographic. But who knows. Maybe I'll get to do both.

But I digress.

Just because it's fun I'm going to show you guys the furniture I found that I'd want in my store. I'd have different sections, obviously, for each genre of book. But each different genre section would have it's own..... reading nook.... if you will. And in that specific area would be furniture that matches the type of book.

I know I'm so cheesy!


So there would be like, a centralized reading area. Comfy looking furniture. End tables. Lamps. Tables and chairs and what not. (And again, off track, I want my bookstore to have the cozy comfy feel. Not wooden chairs, tight leather sofas that squeak when you sit down, etc.) (OH and another aside, almost none of it will match, cuz that's not how I roll!)

Now, for the fantasy section, I'd just scatter chairs in various spots, a sofa or two... and I'd LOVE to have a big swing hanging from the ceiling. LoL. Stuff like this:

And in the general area I found the sweetest patchwork furniture and I love love love it!

Are those the most awesome things you've ever seen?!?

And check this out for the kids section!

How cool is that?!?

And maybe this for some coloring books and stuff...

And then of course there'd be a movie viewing area with bean bags and floor pillows and movie posters on the wall for things like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings.

All over the walls I'd have artwork from local artists so they'd get some exposure, and all the artwork would be for sale. I'd have genre appropriate artwork in all the specific book sections. I've seen lots of wicked cool steampunk stuff I'd LOVE to display.

I mean, I know it's a totally crazy dream. But it's one of the few things that excites me lately. So there you have it.


  1. I love your furniture! Please put your bookstore in a town near me. Okay? Thanks! :-)

  2. OMG!! the sofas and cute colorful seats are sooo awesome!! Please open a bookstore like that in Vancouver, I will seriously just live in it!! :)
