When I was in grade school I couldn't wait for library day. I still love books and together with my husband, have amassed quite a collection.
Today I am meeting with a contractor about my plans for a library in my home--Yay!
I am just dying to get all of those boxes unpacked and out in the light of day.
I am thinking of having the tops arched as in the photo above.
I am going for a dark, moody, masculine space.
I am already thinking about how to style the shelves.
I will not organize by color of the book spines.
I prefer a more organic arrangement.
The walls will be painted Chinese red so I need to decide on a paint color for the shelves.
I am leaning towards black...
just like this Alessandra Branca library that is my main inspiration.
Which would you choose?
