I like a lot that room too. I know quite well what it feels like to climb the shelves in order to get your hands on an old dusty tome, to relax in the worn-out armchair by the stove with a book in one hand and a snifter in the other, to tell a wide-eyed child a gothic story in that special ambience, to hug a pretty woman sitting on the old moth-eaten mutton fur by the fire... precious feelings summoned from the past and from the present by your beautiful piece of art.
Gawd, I love books. The mixture of well-kept books on dusted bookshelves, polished wood furniture, and burning candles is an effect that is really special unto itself. I am sure I would feel right at home in your lair.
It looks truly amazing, magic, like it would be a shot out of an old movie. It seems like that room has a story to tell, I love it! <3 A little gothic feeling to it too, with the candles and the light. Wow!
