What Houzz contributors are saying:

This open space serves as a passageway and an intersection between the family room, the living room and the kitchen. It is also a library, anchored by a large custom stained glass window. “It was made by an old family business in Pasadena called Judson Studios, who has been making stained glass windows for a hundred years," Olde says. "I took a picture of a crest from another house and had them replicate it. I love it. I look at it every day, and it lights up the house.”Olde considers the lighting to be art. "I really wanted an authentic, beautiful, old-world romantic look and feel to the house, and so much of that comes through the lighting,” he says. Not one original fixture had been kept, so everything had to be replaced. “It was almost as expensive as the construction, but they make the house." In total, the couple added 12 antique chandeliers and 32 sconces, a mix of antiques and reproductions. Many of the fixtures came from nearby Ray’s Hardware.The first two lighting fixtures they added were matching chandeliers found in an antiques store in Pasadena, California. “We bought these amazing yet heavy fixtures before we started construction because we loved them so much," Olde says. "We ended up almost constructing certain rooms around those two light fixtures, which inspired the rooms.” One hangs here in the library, and the other is in the kitchen, pulling the two spaces together.
3. Forget the ho-hum shelf. No need to go straight-on rectangular or square. Use your imagination or use a product designer's imagination for a statement-piece bookshelf.Here the bookcase frames stained glass and a view.
