Celebrity Homes, Home Libraries

1. Karl Lagerfeld

We carefully choose products we believe you'll love. If you make a purchase through one of our links, we may earn a commission, at no extra cost to you.

This king of fashion boasts one of the most impressive home libraries we’ve ever seen. Reaching from floor to the very high ceilings in his Paris apartment, Lagerfeld’s collection comprises over 60,000 volumes, making it one of the largest private libraries in the world. Unsurprisingly, many of the works are about fashion, and steel shelves are a must to hold the heavy, picture-laden volumes prized by the Chanel designer.

2.Aaron Spelling

You would assume that somewhere in that $150 million dollar house of the Spelling’s that there would be a library, and you’d be right. Fitting in with the rest of the home, the library is over the top — though still charming — with wood paneling, leather-bound books, and a built-in bar.


3. Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda library

With Jackson Pollack on the walls and bookshelves that stretch to the ceiling (and an awesome ladder to get those hard-to-reach volumes), Fonda’s library living space should have any book lover drooling with envy. Clean and modern without being cold, it’s a far cry from her big-hair-and-leg-warmers days.

4. Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore's library

Sleek gray decor, reclaimed wood floors, and state of the art kitchen? As if we weren’t already jealous enough of fiery-haired beauty Julianne Moore, her exquisite townhouse inspires serious envy. All high ceilings and expensive paintings, it’s a glamorous, but liveable space that’s both modern and timeless.

5. Michael Jackson

An avowed bibliophile, Michael Jackson collected over 10,000 (or possibly more) books during his lifetime, a portion of which were on display in the den of his Neverland Ranch home and around the rest of the estate. This dark-paneled room, with its large fireplace, seems like a superb place to curl up on a rainy day and start tackling the stacks.

6. Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey's library

Known for her book club, it’s natural that this bibliophiliac TV maven would have a library in her home. While probably only one of many of Oprah’s libraries, this one located in her California home boasts reads about everything from Greek history to modern fashion as well as a serious art collection.

7. Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton's library

This inspirational space is located in Keaton’s Beverly Hills home, a sprawling Spanish Colonial-style house that she remodeled in 2007. One room that got some serious attention was the library, with floor-to-ceiling shelves accenting the steeply vaulted ceiling, a beautiful tiled floor and some enviable ladders.

  1. These home libraries are absolutely amazing! However, the library of Diane Keaton is my favorite! I just love her Spanish Colonial-style house! I've heard that she found this adorable home with the help of Michael Libow real estate agent. I would like to have a gorgeous house like that! nice post, by the way!
