This home library features wall-to-wall cypress paneling paired with neutral grasscloth upholstered furniture, including a chaise lounge and sofa. Square patterned pillows decorate the furniture, while colorful glass vases sit atop the wooden coffee table. A sisal area rug completes the natural look of the space.
During the day, the neutral color palette in the library at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 allows the lush greenery outside to take center stage. Designer Geoffrey De Sousa created the space as a lighter, fresher take on the typical dark paneling.
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.
Three floor-to-ceiling windows and a crystal chandelier allow for ample light in this contemporary library. Upholstered armchairs and a large area rug in various textures keep the space soft and comfortable.
You won't be able to focus on a book in the gorgeous reading room of this Tarrytown, NY mansion. This home library has ample room for all your books and more. The wooden interior makes the room cozy while the high ceilings enlarge the room and the grand windows bring in the light.
