I'll start with a few very traditional libraries. I assume the designers of this library and the two below have an appreciation for Mr. Baldwin and Albert Hadley's bodies of work. Dark wood, artfully arranged shelves, a comfy but regal chair, fresh flowers, tassels - it's so rich.
Look at the top of this picture - I want to find a shot of that space above this library.
Oriental rugs are another great addition to a warm library.
Go all the way to the ceiling for maximum storage.
Add a ladder if necessary. Oh, and yes, you may combine your television room with your library if you please. Technically, it's all media, right?
Cushy, cozy, contemporary - this room is part library, part salon, part television room and it's a great combination!
Here's a great dining/library combo, well, except, I don't think these folks could be all that serious about finding certain tomes if all of the books are turned backwards! Bibliophiles, before you freak out, this is a very professional and beautiful photo - I assume that was just a styling trick for this shot!
In this dining/library combo, the table is perfect for having a dinner party, looking at architectural plans, or as a conference table.
Here is a beautiful home office with a library vibe.
Every inch of space is used for shelves here!
Rows and rows of books are right at home in this multi-functional room.
Libraries can include other interesting objects besides books.
From here down I'll keep adding inspiring library images.
