Mary, we've used this detail on a few projects. The depth of the shelf is approx. 12" and the width is around 27" clear between vertical supports. The key feature is that the vertical supports are actually recessed back about an inch so the shelf appears to run continuous, like a series of horizontal slabs.

The railing is 1/4" x 1 1/4" flat bar stock steel. It was designed by us and fabricated by Butch's Welding out of Trenton, NJ. The finish is Benjamin Moore Industrial Coating dark bronze.

Mark, I assume you're asking about the exterior?
The shingles are Western Red Cedar. The stain is by California Storm Stains. We used a custom 50/50 mixture of Clear and Timbertone. Each shingle was individually hand-dipped.

It was a completely custom rail. We used a small welding shop in Trenton, NJ.
The material is flat bar stock steel with a painted finish dark bronze benjamin moore industrial coatings.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's a library even Frank Lloyd Wright would like. It has an Arts and Crafts feel while still laying claim to 2010. The orange accent wall draws attention to the window and by placing a deeper color at the source of the room's natural light, it keeps this library as bright as possible.
Moving upstairs, we see how to make every inch in a 2,100-square-foot family home count. This library balcony is a cozy spot that maximizes space that is often wasted. The horizontal railings echo the railings used on the exterior balcony. "When my wife said we should paint this hallway this color I thought 'you've got to be kidding me!'" says Bubnowski. "I wanted everything to be white. But she was right; it warms things up and it stands up a lot better to sticky fingerprints from a 6 year old!"
Becky Harris added this to 12 Libraries That Lightened Up
Here's another great library spot that makes terrific use of every square inch of space in this upstairs hallway.See the rest of this home
Becky Harris added this to Staircase Landings Worth a Linger
Upstairs hallways and landings often serve only as a way to get from here to there. Turn this area into a functional space with seating, built-ins, moldings, lighting and an area rug.

Perhaps have Daniel build bookshelves and an entertainment center space for flat screen on West wall of sunroom, and redo the paneling on the other two walls, and use sunroom as entertainment space Second version: the shelving and space for flat screen on long wall of living room, with a way to hide the flat screen while not in use. Use present living room as entertainment space. But due to fireplace, people will have to sit an unusually long way away from flat screen, and conversational grouping of furniture won't work too well. The room was designed with the fireplace as the focal point. People didn't have TVs when the house was built.
