I love the B/Gs from THE SWORD IN THE STONE. Being a "creative" (that's a noun) I find myself occasionally in spaces reminiscent of these, surrounded with things I love - books, art, all sorts of interesting things. No science projects!
It's a bit messy at times, to my wife's chagrin, but yet it has a sense of order... to me, anyway.
I guess that reason is as good as any, as to why I love these B/Gs!
