Luxury

I'd meant to give the bookcase photos a rest, but then this weekend, I visited the Morgan Library to see the Jane Austen show and then I couldn't resist sharing this charming little reading nook that J.P. Morgan built for himself. Gilded Age opulence to the max!

I haven't been to the Morgan in a long time, not since the significant expansion designed by Renzo Piano. It's really a stunner (this photo doesn't quite do it justice) and opulent in a whole different way from Morgan's baronial splendor. The whole place spells big bucks. What would Jane Austen think?
