Historic Irving Gill

Photography by David Phelps Photography.

Located on the beach, this historic Percival Thompson House enjoys stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Built in 1910 and enduring several unfortunate alterations along the way, an extensive remodel was badly needed. With very dedicated clients at the helm, the well executed and conceived designs were carried out by the design/construction team.

ROOM - This room/library is very beautiful especially the book cases. However, I'm a little concern with so much direct light from the window which is damaging to both wood and books. Or does that shade provide proper protection for both?

Good question. The matchstick shades do a pretty good job of filtering the light. It is hard to tell in this photo with the highlights blown out a little bit. It is not actually that bright on the bookcase.

Hello. I purchased those on http://www.chelseatextiles.com/us/cushions.html . I don't see that exact pillow anymore, but they have a lot of good ones to choose from.

Wonderful room - reminds me a quinta lounge/library in the Douro. Love the leather chairs. Q: how does one orchestrate the on and off for lights over the bookcases?

Thanks you for the nice comment. Those lights are either on a seperate wall switch or they are tied into the room's Lutron wall panel. I can't remember which.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

8. Change furnace filters. A clean furnace filter will help your heating system work more efficiently and trap more dust and allergens. Most high-efficiency filters should be changed every three months — but it helps to inspect them every month, just to be sure.9. Spruce up your favorite reading nook. This is a good time to get cozy with a book. Spruce up your reading corner with a warm throw, a soft rug and a comfy ottoman to put your feet on. And if you find yourself stuck in the house on a snowy afternoon, why not spend it organizing your books?
