Home libraries usually either look way too stuffy or like the decorator was just trying too hard. This one just looks cozy. I love the shelf to the right of the couch because it just looks like a floor to ceiling stack of books. My library will totally have stacks of books no matter how hard I try to keep them all on the shelves.
built in bookshelves - i like the simple look. does it have a lip on the shelves, i kinda like that.
I like to pretend that these ladder-stairs lead to a loft library. Soft cozy reading corners, just enough light to read properly, a tea caddy that can be pulled up from the kitchen… you with me? It could lead up to a circular tower type part of a house where it is a round library/reading nook.
