Built-in and beautifully carved, bookshelves line the walls of this stair landing-turned-library. The room feels open despite all the dark wood, thanks to the high ceilings and light Venetian plaster walls.
The designer of this home made use of a stair landing to create a wee retreat for its owner. With an overall square footage of 6'6" x 7' the tiny space required pieces with just-right scale and practical function.
The stair landing has a railed opening that looks all the way down to the home's ground floor. Even in this bonus area of the house the architecture is elaborate and fully in keeping with the Mediterranean feel.
