It's pretty similar to our 'Miami' rug by Jaipur. It's handmade in India and awesome quality. http://www.savvyhomestore.com/product/fabric/multiple-sizes-available/city-rug-miami-by-jaipur

I love this room from various angles seen in other photos. What is the color on the other walls (not the back of the bookcase)? It looks like a light blue/grey...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 12 Libraries That Lightened Up
This designer has made so many moves I admire: the library desk complete with reading light (reminds me of college), the oversize lantern, the light walls, the dark paint inside the shelves ...Tip: After figuring out furniture placement like this, have your electrician install a plug in the floor so you no one trips over unsightly wires.
Need more workspace? Use an old dining table as a desk. If you have an old dining table you no longer use, consider swapping it with your desk for more room to spread out. Also, be honest about how you use (and how you wished you used) your home. If you hardly ever use your formal dining room but seriously need more space to dedicate to your home business, why not give in and make your dining room the office? On the rare occasion you want to host a dinner party, you can always clear away your work materials.Tell us: What is your best repurposing or budget decorating tip?
6. Rich accents in North Carolina. If you're lucky enough to have a full room dedicated to your office, take advantage! The black back-painted shelves in this room show off beautiful book collections and tie in with the chandelier and café chairs.
8. Watch out for costly upcycling. It’s a common mistake to assume that you can upcycle any old thing cheaply and effectively. A good rule of thumb is to purchase only items you know you’ll be able to restore on your own, or know how much it will cost to get it done professionally. Some restoration services, such as reupholstering, can be quite expensive, and the finished piece may end up costing a lot more than you had anticipated. “You have to use a bit of common sense,” Dyson says. “If you want to change it a lot, think about whether it’s worth the money it will take to restore it.”“Don’t get trapped into buying something because it’s cheap,” Taylor warns. “Not everything can be saved, so be careful that you can turn your vision into reality and don’t end up wasting money.”“If you’re buying with the intention of painting an item, then look at its finish,” Orchard advises. “Laminate, for instance, is really hard to paint over without lots of sanding or specialist paint that can be quite costly.”
