Lindy Donnelly

Custom built-in bookcases with pivoting TV. Photo by For the downstairs bedroom, Donnelly played with textures and patterns to create dramatic, but cozy window treatments. "The loden green wool sateen has just a bit of sheen paired with finely striped textured fabric of the Roman shades. The lambrequins have inverted pleats, a detail I used to use in fashion design, and I love how he space is a comforting cocoon-like retreat."

The pale beige cotton sateen bedding with an acanthus damask pattern is from Yves Delorme, while the frosted glass table lamps are from BAE in San Francisco.

Checkout for any lifts swivel(rotation), flip, tilt etc... They have by far the best products and service. They can do anything too!

It pivots to a bookcase, not another room. That's actually an exterior wall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"One of the homeowners is a children’s book publisher and had an extensive collection of books," says Donnelly. "Because of the vast number of books and her desire for the living room to also function as a library, we created floor to ceiling built-in bookcases."
