It is always pleasant to curl up with a good book and allow your mind to explore the vastness of the world within the pages. The right home library design can enhance your favorite books and make them even more enjoyable to explore. Here are five home library design suggestions taken from some truly remarkable libraries:

  • High ceilings create a cavernous space suited for reading everything from Faulkner to King.
  • Let the light in and make sure the library has a combination of directional lighting, large windows, and skylights.
  • Keep it organized with floor to ceiling shelving, showing off a classic style.
  • Frame the room in books. Mold your shelving so that it fits seamlessly with windows, reading areas, and the architectural elements within the room.
  • Make your home library cozy. Be sure that you select decorative elements that you find appealing and that bring your favorite reading genres to life.

Give the bed plenty of attention and space. The bed should be set towards the center of the room and festooned with a large, ostentatious headboard that draws attention to the piece. To complete the bed space, be sure it is illuminated by a chandelier, wall sconces, or recessed lighting set with dimmer switches to help finish the romantic ambiance of the room.

Finally, be sure to utilize an abundance of crown molding and trim. This should be used to draw attention to the walls and ceiling as much as possible. Indeed, the patterns and details decorative moldings create is one of the key elements that makes French bedroom designs so unique and appealing.

Bring Western Designs to Your Living Room

Posted on August 13th, 2014 by

Designing a Western style living room isn’t that hard to do and with some careful planning, you can end up with a living room that even John Wayne himself would be comfortable relaxing in.

First, start with the lights. You will want to make sure to include large windows, French doors, and even skylights so that the room is constantly bathed in a warm glow of natural light. Whenever possible, use your windows to showcase the natural scenery outside the home. Finish your lighting off by including a combination of chandeliers and recessed lighting.

Next, make sure to include plenty of natural wood. Whether you decorate with log designs or simply include hardwood floors, natural wood tones are an essential element. Additionally, be sure to include natural stone; rough cut granite and limestone are always popular and can be used to build everything from fireplaces to counters. Together, the wood and stone provide a solid, masculine look and feel that’s the hallmark of western design.
