he is your classic whole-to-part person. If you are having trouble picking up on the clues, here is a sure-fire test: Ask the client how he reads books. Does he read slowly and carefully without ever skipping a paragraph? He is a part to whole. On the other hand, if (like me) he reads the last page

I love having books on display.

Color coordinated. The custom shelving unit and the book styling in this traditional living room are stunning. The designer grounds the space with neutral furnishings and layers on splashes of color by way of book spines.
Bonus: It will give you an excuse to peruse all of your favorite old books!

bar and was wondering what to do with the space. I'm going to show my contractor and go for it. The kids will love to sit with their laptop or read a book. It will create some interest in the room too. Thank you!!!

the bed and the book shelf

5. Book nook. Transform a closet into a library oasis by installing wall shelves to store your favorite reads

Before our house fire, our family library included thousands of books. And this was with continual donations and a thorough going-over during our housewide decluttering. Now I can see I held onto books I didn't love for one or more of the following reasons: Sentimentality. I owned three

shelves. Do you know how they were fabricated? Is there a custom bracket secured to the wall, or was custom steel used to support the weight of the books? Is this solid wood, or wood wrapped around brackets? Any info is appreciated, thanks!
