We commissioned this painting from a local artist. He copied a painting from the Spanish Renaissance. You might be able to find a similar print somewhere, or commission someone to make you copy.

My client already had the chairs before we designed this room. I am sorry but I don't know the manufacturer.

Library Lighting - Can you tell me if the indirect lighting is strictly the ceiling lights and their positioning/angling? Or are the shelves lit some other way. My husband is light sensitive - I'm trying to gather ideas on lighting his library in subtle tones - adding table / desk lamps for added reading / work light. Thank you!!

@Brenna Nah Kerridwen - are funny. But, I get your point. It's whatever floats your boat.

Love the inset metal boxes w/ sculpture. Absolutely love the painting! Gives the elegantly defined but conservative room zing - the tone ref to your architecture.

The painting is lit from recessed down lights and the busts are lit from below by uplights built into the custom shelving unit we designed.

Print in Library - Hello, I just saw your beautiful library design. I was wondering if you could tell me how you created the print. I have been wanting to create something similar with a painting by Vermeer. Is this a giant canvas or a mural? Thanks

The art is very nice. What is its name and who is the artist? Generally in the UK there is a company which can turn every art into mural. It is called "Surface view" and they are brilliant. Used them before and they ar e vy helpful.

The painting is a copy of a Spanish Renaissance painting. The copy was done by a local artist who is a friend of mine. He is very talented and also does wonderful, original paintings in a modern style.

It is not a print, but a custom painting. It is a copy of a Spanish Renaissance painting, executed by a friend of mine.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Classic Touch: Decorating with Sculpture
When featured individually and highlighted with lighting, busts will give a room presence. This library does double duty as a dining room. I envision dinner parties rich in conversation, inspired by the wise sages displayed around the room.
Becky Harris added this to Create a Place for Books
This painting is of Saint Jerome, the Patron Saint of Libraries. I just made that up, but it would be great if it were true.
