What would you do with a spare room?

When one lives in an enormous house in the country, sometimes it can be difficult to fill all the rooms. Naturally, one expects to have several bedrooms, a couple of sitting rooms and a few bathrooms, but then what? As a family of bookworms we have a couple of libraries (one for the grown-ups, one for the kids - we should have another "overspill" library by the spring), I have an office which is often used and a gym which is rarely used, and there's the usual workshop and so on.

But what I really want is a "snug": a tiny chamber, with a comfortable chair, a small table and a little shelf of books, warmly lit and cosy, with a lock on the door: a place to escape and hide, far from sticky fingers and argumentative little voices. There's a room I have in mind for exactly this purpose, though I haven't told my wife yet. If I'm very, very quiet, maybe she won't notice.

If you could have a special room, fitted out for your unique needs and pleasures, what would you have?

Let your imaginations run free!
