Ever since my first childhood viewing of My Fair Lady, I’ve been enamored with Henry Higgins’ library. My Brooklyn railroad apartment might not have much space for a spiral staircase, but I do have a middle room between the living room and the bedroom that functions as part hallway/part actual room. Now that I’m working from home full-time, I’ve really been puzzling over how to make it a real room while keeping in mind that there has to be space for traffic flow. It is now being transformed into my own (more girly) library. I want to fill the room with maps, books, a comfortable chair and the perfect reading light. Just you wait, Henry Higgins. — Amy A.
