In the nursery, bookshelves are hung low so that they are easily accessible to the homeowners' small children. They display a great collection of colorful books that draws the eye and beckons kids to open their minds to adventure. To top off the space, the word "Book Worm", made of wooden letters covered in pages to an old children's book, makes this area of the nursery a little more fun.
