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 really really want a library in my future home! Home library. This library for the current living room. Add a second story on the flat roof to finish the library and sitting area. preferably a round roof to add to the nautical feel of the home.
Its my dream to have a library ladder in my house someday. Floor to ceiling bookcases offer plenty of space to showcase a vast collection of books. A ladder gives access to books placed high on the bookcase.
This is the perfect place to put a pull out bed. I always look at those beds and think they're impractical because it's too hard to leave all of the open floor space needed for one but I'd happily do it for this library/reading space
I would be in book heaven. One day I'll have not only a home big enough for a room like this, but also enough books to fill the shelves. Well, a girl can dream, can't she? Private library designed by architecture firm Ilai, photography by Lukas Wassmann.
