Built in shelves add an elegant touch to home libraries

The walls of the library should be hung with rich, dark colors, the latest style in wall paper being a black ground with old gold and olive-green designs. The carpet comes in Pompeiian red, with moss-green and peacock-blue patterns. Statuary and the best pictures should find a place in the library.

The library table should be massive and the top laid with crimson baize. There should be a few high-backed chairs, upholstered in leather, a reading-chair, soft rugs, foot-rests, a mantel mirror, a few mantel ornaments, and the piece de resistance—the bookcase. In large libraries the bookcases are built in the wall. It is quite in vogue to hang curtains on rods in front of bookcases instead of doors, but we think the old style is the best, inasmuch as the books may be seen and the glass doors exclude the dust. Heavy curtains of raw silk, Turcoman, and canton flannel, with a full valance at the top, are used for the window drapery.

    When designing a home library, you need three basic elements: space, shelves and books. Custom build a new room or choose an existing spacious room to house your books. You need to work with the space to design the library of your dreams.

    Awesome article….Great design for building Library. I think  the room where you are going to have your library must be very peaceful and soundproof. The chairs should be comfortable so that you can enjoy reading books there. The color of rooms should be light and simple.
