Bookcase / Fireplace Combos

Trying to get ideas for a specific fireplace surround need... General bookshelves not with fireplaces are under "Bookshelves & Home Libraries."

The detail work above and beside the television set in this fireplace / bookcase combo is really nice. This is from the "Las Vegas Penthouse Project" by the Michael Fullen Design Group.

"Reviving a Victorian Home," via "ELLE DECOR" -- "The living room features an 18th-century Chinese cocktail table, an ebonized Regency gilt mirror, and built-in shelves fitted with brass lights by Thomas O’Brien for Visual Comfort; a silhouette by Kara Walker hangs above the sofa, which is covered in a linen velvet by Cowtan & Tout." -- Love this look!!

"Color Watch: An Idea on how to use Chartreuse!" -- "I think this living room with a chartreuse painted fireplace and the chartreuse trimmed windows [and the back of the bookcases surrounding the fireplace] shows how a little chartreuse can go a long way to make a design impact!"

"Built-In Beauties: A pair of tall, narrow bookshelves flank both sides of the fireplace in this spacious living room. The upper portion of the shelves is used to display books and other collectibles, while the lower part is outfitted with a cabinet to stow away games, DVDs, and more. The brick fireplace surround adds a dash of rough, stony texture."

Can't seem to track this bookcase/fireplace combo to its original source, so simply pinning it for inspiration without further information.

This is actually a vacation cottage for rent, but it was the bookcases against the tall wall that caught my attention.

"Halloween Giant Haunted Fireplace Window Decorations: Put a spooky fireplace on any wall!" -- Totally made me laugh -- if you don't have your own fireplace/bookcase combo, then stick it up on your wall!

Though Fox Hill Village is a residential facility rather than a private home, I like the look of this bookcase/fireplace combination by Siemasko + Verbridge...

I like the simplicity of the plain ladder for access (in this room, anyway) and I like that I can see another bookcase in the next room! From "desire to inspire -- Down on the farm" -- see another room from this house here:
