Wood-Paneled Library in Mediterranean-Style Estate
Period details abound in this two-story, wood-paneled library, part of a 3.5-acre Mediterranean-style estate located in the heart of Beverly Hills. Known as The Beverly House, the property was designed by Gordon Kaufmann and built in 1927. In this library, the design of the sculpted, cathedral-height ceiling mirrors the pattern of the custom carpet underfoot. Carved panels lend architectural detail and visual interest to every inch of the massive space, while warm wood tones, a crackling fireplace and accent lighting lend coziness and warmth.
Magnificent cherry wood architectural paneling and detailing are the signature elements in this two-story library and home office. The wool area rug and comfortable leather seating anchors this room and the custom spiral staircase leads one up to the second-floor home office, which is off the master bedroom. The original oil painting is illuminated by the picture light above to call attention to it in the evening.
The two-story paneled library mixes traditional and modern styles. Dark brown walls are paired with classic bookcases, filled with the homeowners' collection. Centered in the room is a long rustic table and contemporary wire-and-leather chairs, creating a great spot for homework and research, while cozy chairs by the bay window make for the perfect reading area.
The book-lined library is centered on a Nettie Darr table, one of Barry Dixon's first designs for Mike Reid Weeks and inspired by his grandmother's parlor table. Tall lucite floor lamps provide light at either end of the oak daybed.
Low, amber ceiling panels combine with dark wood walls and shelves to create a cavernous, masculine retreat. A mix of comfortable furniture, from the deep suede sofa to the sleek upholstered chair, create a welcoming conversation area, while a built-in bar is perfect for entertaining.
