In love with libraries


As I have a passion for books, in particular interior design books, I love spending hours in our library.  When I need inspiration to design a client’s library or complete interior design project, I close the door of our library, put on my favorite music and start consulting my collection of interior design books.

Can you imagine, sitting in a comfortable chair next to the fire place, curling up with a book? Definitely a treat for the soul!


Designing a library, you have to pay attention to details.

Notice the bookcase details here. Awesome!

And I do love to bring in secret library doors, if possible.

What I love more in all these shown libraries, is the painted back of the bookcases.

This is exactly what I did with the cabinetry in our own library.

If you need inspiration to furnish or to decorate your library, I discovered an interesting feature on 1STDIBS with great addresses to find library furniture and accessories.
