Library With Built-In Wood Shelves and White Books
Designer Geoffrey De Sousa envisioned the Library at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 being used by an iPad-centric homeowner, whose reading materials are stored in the cloud. The white painted books, which were hand painted by Geoffrey and his team, giving this library a unique look.
Script-printed wallpaper lines the walls of this library, while built-in shelving provides storage space for this family’s reading materials. Cool neutral tones and distressed wood accents give this room a cozy atmosphere, perfect for curling up with a good book.
A mustard yellow couch sits centered in front of large windows in the midcentury modern home library. Stylish wood panels the ceiling, mimicking the warm wood floor below. Books line the walls framing the window, filling the custom floor-to-ceiling shelving and adding a sense of coziness to the space.
Billiards Room Features White Lacquer Pool Table With Black Velvet Top
Floor to ceiling bookshelf wallpaper gives this billiards room the feel of an old library with neutral books encased in black shelves. The white lacquer pool table with a black velvet top is a gorgeous centerpiece. A deep red curtain adds a bold accent color, and a set of black and white striped chairs complement the color theme while adding a new pattern to the design.
An entire wall composed of built-in shelves neatly displays books and personal treasures in this home office. A chic rolling chair in white pairs, a black wood desk and zebra rug complete the stylish design.
White Cabinets, Marble and Open Shelving in Modern Kitchen
Plenty of white gives this modern kitchen a bright, clean feel. It boasts shiny white cabinets, open wood shelving, and gray and white marble countertop and backsplash. Dishes in black and white, and small personal touches, like a plant and books, provide plenty of visual interest.
Funky cabinets and floating shelves create an eye-catching wall in this hip, modern kitchen. A bright white, tile backsplash adds texture to the space while gorgeous, dark wood cabinets bring in warmth. Photos, maps, and books are lovely personal touches that sets this urban kitchen apart.
Midcentury Modern Home Office With Built-In Shelving
In this home office, which has gorgeous dark wood floors, a wood desk is paired with a built-in shelving unit, used to display two yellow vases, several books, a framed picture and other accessories. A midcentury modern white chair offers a place to sit.
Cozy Red Living Room with White Shelving and Cozy Sectional
This living room features bright red walls as well as four windows, cozy seating areas, a low wood coffee table, a Flokati rug and a white shelving unit that is filled with books, art, copper dishes and a small TV.
Thick white trim creates a cohesive look in the open design of this home. The living room features a lime-green accent wall behind a large built-in shelving unit with a custom library ladder. A round wood coffee table echoes the rich wood of the hardwood floor, and a shag rug brings a soft texture to the room.
A custom library ladder is a fun accessory for the large shelving unit in this living room. The lime green pops nicely against the surrounding orange walls, and the room is unified with thick white trim. A tufted white sofa matches the trim, while wood tables blend with the hardwood floor. Midcentury-modern chairs with matching ottomans complete the space.
Repurposed Game Storage in Contemporary Living Room
By picking up a small wooden dresser at a flea market, then removing its central drawers with a reciprocating saw, three open shelves were created for housing board games and books. To give the dresser an updated look, its exterior was sprayed with glossy coral paint, while the interior was sprayed matte white.
