What an awesome library! You could do this in any small room of the house... put glass french doors with curtains, and a few good chairs/lamps--- would feel like Mom's library. I like the colored shelves=)
Meg, this room is what I envisioned looking through the gentleman's library auction you posted on facebook. "Gentleman's library room, though I'd love it for myself. I've always wanted a room like this in my home. The ultimate cozy nook."
