In love with libraries

As I have a passion for books, in particular interior design books, I love spending hours in our library.  When I need inspiration to design a client’s library or complete interior design project, I close the door of our library, put on my favorite music and start consulting my collection of interior design books.

Can you imagine, sitting in a comfortable chair next to the fire place, curling up with a book? Definitely a treat for the soul!

Designing a library, you have to pay attention to details.
Notice the bookcase details here. Awesome!

And I do love to bring in secret library doors, if possible.

What I love more in all these shown libraries, is the painted back of the bookcases.

This is exactly what I did with the cabinetry in our own library.
