Victorian? The window seen in the second and third pictures is the only Victorian thing remaining that I can see.

This article made my heart sing...someone else who treasures the written word...not to mention that the beautiful execution is stunning. Thank you for sharing!

I am a book collector, love books, have lots. That said, I would find having them all over a little confining, just my personal feeling. Also, having all those books in areas of high traffic would likely create a lot of work in keeping them dusted, not a trivial issue in terms of dust mites, allergies, etc. I agree that adjustable shelves are more efficient and flexible but less clean lines in a modern interior. Large glass doors might soften the impact of adjustable shelving, reduce the dust problem, and still present a more modern surface design, not to mention softening the impact of so many books in general. The non-book areas inside and out create much relief and balance. Overall, I could be very happy here.

BTW, don't all the puck lights create a lot of glare when looked at from below?

Hate mine. Too heavy and never use it. Takes up too much space - that I don't have but was a gift from my hubby...so there it sits.

While I was working full time to pay for college, I rented an apartment in an inner city area that had been a red light district when my parents were teenagers and young adults. My parents would NEVER tell anyone where I was renting! The building had a new owner and the inside of my apartment had been totally redone. New bathroom with labels on all the fixtures and a brand new kitchen with a brand new stove and refrigerator. And cheap. However there was a railroad trestle that aimed right for the apartment before the track curved away. My first night, a bright light filled the apartment even though I had all the shades pulled. Then the whistle blasted. I peeked out and it looked like the train was coming right for me. I ran for the door. Fortunately it passed by without incident.

Very pretty entrance...leave them as is with the lighting, or paint only the arc inside the dark gray paint you already have in the entrance leaving the flat wall the color it is. You could also decorate by season with large faux flower arrangements professionally done in pottery urns since you have a Pottery Barn style in your home.

Don't remove any railing or people will be tripping over the steps. Paint the walls on first floor between the steps and place a round rug there. Put matching sconces where the mismatched pictures are. I love your entry!

It's busy as is. Adding pedestals and vases would add vertical visual clutter. I might try some small artwork on the walls on either side of the entry to the room

Strange and creepy are words that came to mind upon seeing it. I'm not a fish, and don't want to be that exposed. In fact, I don't get glass showers either.
