Old-timey library stuff

My dream room to have in a future house would be an old-fashioned library, complete with built-in bookshelves up to the ceiling, a library ladder (to reach those shelves up to the ceiling), a big, imposing desk, and worn, old-boys-club style furniture. The "library" we have now is certainly inspired by that, with a healthy dose of girly, whimsical, and ironic accessorizing.

I do sometimes find myself (and by that I mean always) yearning for Victorian, British-Empire style tchotchkes to fill said library with. I'm currently loving the affordable objects by Authentic Models and Victorian Trading Co.

Phrenology Head - I'm dying for one of these!
