Rustic Library Features Wood Built-In Bookcases
Beyond the bar is a library with a 12-foot ceiling featuring two belt-driven ceiling fans. Wood built-in bookcases provide storage and display space, and chic white chairs add an unexpected jolt of modern style.
Awkward Hallway Space Transformed Into Cozy Reading Nook
A small space with an awkward transition between a hallway and formal living room is put to use as a cozy reading nook. Though the chaise and bookcase are modern in nature, the leather upholstery and crown molding-style trim help keep the space traditional enough to fit the adjacent room. The cowhide rug adds extra coziness, making this a perfect spot to curl up with a great book.
Study Features Comfortable Seating for Curling Up With a Book
A cozy study features comfortable seating and appropriate task lighting for curling up with a good book. Thanks to this home's location along the shores of Long Island Sound in Old Greenwich, Conn., the room enjoys sweeping water views through the sunny windows.
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.
Cozy Den Area Features Fireplace, Library Nook and TV
At the end of the master suite is a cozy den featuring a corner fireplace, library nook and television. Heavy wood beams and trim and stucco walls continue the Mediterranean styling seen throughout this Santa Ynez Valley, Calif., home.
