Some pretty awesome book shelves. I personally want floor to ceiling shelves covering at least two walls in my spare bedroom. until I upgrade from condo to a house with a full-blown library / reading-n-nook room :D
Rows of matching Billy bookcases from Ikea work well here. Consider that the books and accessories offer the pop while the bookcases provide the background. (contemporary living room by Smith & Vansant Architects PC)
I lived in a loft in my early before settling into more traditional houses. And while I thought I was happy with my bungalow life, I'm now experiencing a serious case of loft lust. This Tribeca loft, designed by New York firm Ike Kligerman Barkley
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 Moms library. I like the colored shelves=) - Amazing House Design
Not sure how I feel about the baby-blue shelves. I guess I want bookshelves to be warm, dark, Oxford-y colors. But I love the chandelier and the use of space here. And the ladder.in a just world every library would have, and need, a ladder.
