Children’s book author and illustrator Lane Smith lives in a charming 200-year old farmhouse in Connecticut. Behind the farmhouse is Smith’s writing studio in the barn, which I’m even more in love with. When I saw his floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, I nearly swooned. As a writer, this would be my dream work space.
The bookshelves are filled with Smith’s collection of vintage children’s books.
The bookshelves themselves were built with the wood from reclaimed antique floorboards to give them a rustic look.
This seating area by the stone fireplace looks like a cozy place to sit on a cold Connecticut night, doesn’t it?
The 200-year old farmhouse is worth looking at, too. You can see all the photos at Country Living. (Photography by David Prince.)
