These are beautiful spaces. My favorite thing about indie bookstores is the character the exude. I haven’t been to any of these. Looks like I have some traveling to do!
This morning, we discovered the way we’d like to spend our golden years — turning our home into a neighborhood bookstore and café, and bringing the culture to us. Inspired by the Japanese couple that did just that, we’ve collected a few beautiful, quirky bookstores built in people’s homes. Some of these are still functioning as domiciles, the owners sleeping above (or among!) the books; some are tiny hotels; and others are simply repurposed residences, but all of them are places we’d like to visit. After the jump, browse through a few beautiful bookstores built in residential spaces, and clue us in to any we’ve missed in the comments.
