library..love the idea of the french doors opening into the backyard!
Library room with French doors and comfy places to sit and read in the sun. Maybe a bay window and window seat.
This is the ultimate home library: floor to ceiling built-in bookshelves, fireplace, and french doors! All it needs is a ladder to reach the top books.
Even a small space will work. Just need a chair and good light.

Classic Interior Design; Spencer-Churchill This Victorian-style library is cozy and inviting, with rich wood bookcases and paneling, jewel-toned, comfortable furnishings and a fireplace to make a warm spot for curling up with a good book. This modern library has been decorated in an 18th-century style, with many nods to classicism. A very handsome room, filled with gilt and leather books and fine furnishings.
I think a library should be a dark, what some might describe as masculine space, with a fireplace and heavy drapes (or no windows). Most libraries I see in home decor magazines are either a) not libraries (studies, maybe) b) way too light or c) do not have enough book shelves. This one is far too... stodgy, but it is the closest I've seen.
Odd shaped library with fireplace and books...can also double as a living room and office.
Home Libraries 1061 Library Design (teNeues) A beautiful home library and office, probably in Germany. Bookcases constructed of light-colored wood and glass-fronted doors, a handsome desk and chair, a pair of reading lamps and ample natural light make this an ideal room for reading. ******************************************************************************* 1062 House Beautiful: Decorating with Books; Hueston The charming niches and central table in the entrance hall

Such expansive hallways, however, create challenging spans of wall. Handegan's inspired solution is murals of surrounding scenes in the style of the 1920s Charleston watercolorist Alice Ravenel Huger Smith. San Francisco artist Scott Waterman deftly emulated Smith's paintings, and the mural in each place in the house depicts the scene outside it. Says the owner,

The Long Library showing the silver chandelier which is a copy of the one at Knole and the dining table, at Sissinghurst, home of Vita Sackville-West and her husband Sir Harold Nicolson, near Cranbrook, Kent. This room is the largest in the existing house and was created out of the old stables, and contains the 4,000 books accumulated from 40 years of reviewing. Perfection!
