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.
