There's something romantic about a staircase. I've never been able to figure out quite what it is, but when I start imagining my dream house, I always imagine the stairs first. So when you combine the romance of stairs with the warmth of bookshelves… I am completely in love.
As it turns out, the internet has plenty of ideas to fuel my imagination. Any one of these lovely bookcase/stair combos could be the centerpiece of my perfect home. Time to start dreaming.
