Chic Home Library

I cannot live without books! This winter I will be hibernating with a cup of coffee and a good book.

Custom designed libraries create an intellectual center for your home. Done right, they can make a space special, interesting and magical.

Here are some fabulous home libraries:

(I love how Designer Markham Roberts hung a huge Julia Condon mandala painting on the bookcase. It gives the room a funky and contemporary feel)

(Designer Todd Klein used high-gloss brown walls to play up the grid pattern of the bookshelves) 

(I love this dine-in library! The ebonized wood and sterling bookshelf is stunning)

(The traditional bookcase becomes unique and interesting as the books are hid beneath the angular architecture of the space) 

(This one is my favorite! The floor-to-ceiling bookcase was built by designer David Kaihoi and painted in high-gloss black. The room feels glamorous and grandiose - my style)
