Gatling Design
There is a flush mount fixture on the ceiling above the bookcases. It isn't seen in the photo of the bookcases looking toward the entry. You can, however, see it in the photo of the dining room. If you look to the right the fixture peeks out just behind the column. The clients specifically requested the shelves themselves not be lit. We wanted a more subtle, older feel to the home. Lighting is always one of the most important parts to a home design in our opinion and we place great emphasis on creating just the right mood.

So much to love about this cottage. The Matisse inspired red door and green trim is great, followed by the shelving in the hallway, the dining room built-ins, the high ceilings, the bathroom and back deck. This is one of my favorite homes, thanks for sharing.

I worry about "throw" rugs, especially the ones with fringe. After I had hip surgery, the occupational therapist warned me about falling hazards, which included small rugs.
