Library - all white with the red chairs and buffalo check accents. We could fill a cozy reading corner with books, magazines, patterns and an iPad for surfing Ravelry!

House Crashing: Lovely At Last | Young House Love. Love this shelving. they look like Billy to me with doors and an IKEA lighting system. I would love to do this with my place, but have the doors that only cover the bottom half so I can store other things in there (tools, linens, etc. as I don't have built in storage for any of these).

wrap-around bookshelf

Not sure what I think about using lighting in side the cabinets in the craft room. Maybe glass front cabinets on top of it? I tend to put small lamps into book shelves. So we are going to need outlets in the bookshelves. Any bookshelves in the house.
