Oil would be best for the bookcase finish. Colorwise try Sherwin Williams' SW6431 Leapfrog.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Living with Books
Books are not claustrophobic. They laugh at tight spaces. They also play well with others, mixing in beautifully with your other treasured pieces.
Jonathan Baker added this to The Gentleman Cellar: Anti-Man Cave
Before television was invented, gentlemen found solidarity in their offices or libraries. The Old World accents (traditional desk, bear skin rug, framed maps, hardback books, vintage travel luggage) are what make this room truly seem like man's sanctuary.
