Who are your favorite authors? Wouldn’t you like to learn more about how and where they lived, or which habits they had?

Home Advisor, a platform with free tools and resources for home improvement, has released a set of inspiring images.

Take a closer look at them. They are floor plans of bedrooms where eight famous writers spent their nights, were reading books and dreamt about the new ones.

The floor plans are intended to provide ideas for bedroom arrangement, and you don’t have to be an avid book reader to get inspired.

What we frequently find we love about an artist is reflected in the way they dress, the places where they spend their time, and the things they surround themselves with.

Below the images, you’ll see a composite infographic we’ve made to collect all floor plans in one image that’s easy to share in social media.

Make sure to visit the original post on Home Advisor to read home decor tips that accompany a description of each author’s bedroom.
