Beautiful chairs - Would you share where the chairs are from ? I've been looking for tufted chairs for my bedroom sitting area and yours appear to be the right size and are beautiful. Thanks.

wood panelling - Hello there! I adore the walls in this space. Are they t&g? Do you happen to know how wide? Are they hard to install? I would like to do a similar panelling in my bathroom...are they appropriate for a room that will be exposed to moisture? Any ides of what the colour of the panelling on the walls is?? It doesn't look stark white to me - it's beautiful!! Thank you so much, Rhea

The flooring looks like repurposed barn wood flooring. We just installed some very similar from barnwood naturals out of salem, or.

Since no one ever answered, I'd take an educated guess at something like 12 x 16.

We are building and our living space has several south facing windows for natural sunlight. We have a large sectional that is a burgandy/wine/darkrusted color (hard to describe the shade) I want to paint the area a shade of gray but what shade? The space adjoing is the kitchen which I thought about painting a shade of yellow to give it a nice sunshiny feeling but not bright yellow. It also has lots of natural light. Help!! I am afraid of color but LOVE it when I see it at someone else's house. I want to be brave this time.

I do not like the idea of grey in this room. Grey is a cool color and the floors are a beautiful, golden color. I would try pumpkin or carmel color. Use it on the INTERIOR back walls of the shelves. Then I would use a shade darker, complementary color on the recessed areas in the ceiling.
I would change out the area rug using a pattern that incorporates the same colors in a pattern. Leave the walls outside the shelves the same color. This will warm up the entire room. You may need to replace the ottoman with a warm tone fabric with a pattern that coordinates with the new area rug. Bring in some cream accesories into the shelving which will now pop against the pumpkin or carmel back wall. This room has wonderful "bones" and could be really a warm inviting area with color on the walls & ceiling. Love the potential here.

I agree - grey may be trendy but it is a cold color. I know designers are in love with it right now but I don't think it will last. I grew up in a house that my parents painted grey and it made me so deppressed my whole life I swore I would never paint anything grey - and I never have used grey (on the walls) with so many clients over 7 years. So I may be biased against it, but it looks to me that this space needs a warmer color palette. I like the pumpkin/gold idea and I would think Benjamin Moore Oklahoma Wheat. Also south facing rooms can be very difficult so test the shades in different spots and look at them in day and night lighting. Oklahoma wheat may be great during the day but too intense at night... worth a try though to be in that family.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Cuddly Nooks for Every Room
Use knee walls (half walls) to separate a little library nook in a larger space. Surround the space with shelves filled with books and display items, then make it cozy with a rug and comfy chairs.
Becky Harris added this to Get Ideas for a Cozy Library Space
Lots of homes constructed since the late 1970s have a large nebulous loft or open area at the top of the stairs on the second floor. Unsuitable for a bedroom, it's often wasted space; transforming it into a library makes the most of it.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Libraries That Lightened Up
Instead of closing off the library in the usual traditional way, this open library keeps the space airy and makes the entire first floor feel larger. Planked walls and a planked ceiling lend a cottage feel.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Pony Wall
A tongue-and-groove paneled pony wall with a wood cap helps delineate the different spaces within this room.
