The homeowner of this Victorian-era Narragansett, Rhode Island, cottage had always dreamed of a library. Interior designer Lone Carlson was able to carve one out of a former dead space — a hallway that led to nowhere. An overstuffed chair and ottoman, and shelves custom-fitted to the space, transformed the hallway into a snug little library and reading nook.

“She dreamed of a library, and I wanted to create a work area for her that gave her that feel,” Carlson says. She used this dead space at the end of a hallway to create a cozy and comfortable office and spot for reading. The house came with several wonderful antique trunks that Carlson had refurbished; she used them throughout the house. The unique water nymph lamp seen here was the client’s, and the desk is a family piece. The designer also composed a gallery wall using family photos. Rug; Kravet; bookcase: custom fitted, Hooker

Libraries can be created from furniture pieces rather that built in bookshelves.
