Although this bookcase looks to be normal enough, it really has a twisted secret up its sleeve. In what could be the greatest way to conceal your entertainment and media room ever, check out what this bookcase can do!

We ran across this space over at Apartment Therapy New York yesterday, it's the home of Sean and Daphne from Nolita, NYC. It has this great rustic, industrial vibe and everywhere you look there's inspiration, creation and great ideas. One of our favorites is the bookcase above, although it looks normal, it has a twisted secret...

The bookshelf is on a pivot and swings open to reveal the family's entertainment room. There's a projector, large screen, relaxation area and even more books (be still our heart!). Instead of trying to figure out how to go about making it all feel more pleasing to the eye (although we love it just the way it is), they made a secret hide away which also doubles as a private space for guests to stay when they visit.

We love everything about this space and taking a tour is well worth your time, don't forget to read the captions at the top to learn more about this great big, beautiful loft!
