A library by Dutch-born designer Martin Kobus was inspired by the use of an original Rembrandt. His firm installed crisp white plaster work on the ceilings in between the beams and on the upper walls, then stained the wood paneling a rich dark espresso.
White walls and bold, dark gray trim makes this library niche pop! The hardwood floors, cowhide rug and 1970's bench play off each other in an eclectic harmony. Bold artwork, a potted olive tree and the midcentury bar make this niche the perfect vignette.
