Custom Libary in Maple by Odhner & Odhner Fine Woodworking Inc. traditional-home-office

Custom Libary in Maple by Odhner & Odhner Fine Woodworking Inc.

This custom library was designed for a lucky New Jersey area physician. The rich mahogany and traditional paneling give it an old world feel, but it's no dark, dusty study. Special custom hoods were created for the arched windows, as the light becomes a key feature of the room, and a panel and fluted pilasters were built to frame the window on the room end. Custom bookcases maximize wall space in the room and paneled heater covers conceal the hot water heating units. A new coffered ceiling, a custom desk to match - what more could you ask for in a study?

Thank you for your reply. The room I'm trying to decorate is a Great Room. Roman or Solar shades sound very informal, like for a family room. I'm looking for an in between look, neither casual nor formal. Is there a style that might fit that?

There are several different types of roman shades - and their mood will vary depending on the fabric and type of shade chosen.
