    Loving this look! Was there ever clarification on the wall color? Is it VanDusen Blue or Newburyport Blue?

  • isabella16

    I just noticed the heading VanDusen Blue.

    Beautiful, just beautiful. Love those little cupboards under the bookshelves. Clever too, as that's where books always get impossibly dusty.

                          Mitchell Parker added this to Design Debate: Should You Use Books for Decoration?Oct 5, 2016

                          “Books earn their spot on a shelf, so to me, putting a book on display without at least having the intention of one day picking it up seems like cheating on the books. It also seems like a waste of money. Why invest in bookshelves to display books you won’t ever read? Buy a big piece of original art instead.“Books offer clues into one’s interests, one’s personality, one’s psyche. Peruse someone’s bookshelves, and there is something almost magical about what the books reveal about a person. Conversations get started around books. Friendships get formed. “Based on that, if I had a client who asked me to fill their bookshelves with books through yard sales or getting books by the yard or — yikes! — to purchase books based on the color of the book jacket or even re-cover books in colored paper, I would refuse and offer them choices from the display items I noted above.”

                          Deep ocean blue. Interior decorator Cory Connor says to check out the lighting situation thoroughly before going dark in a room. She knew this library received a lot of natural light from the windows, and she added sconces and a chandelier and painted the ceiling white to help prevent Benjamin Moore’s Newburyport Blue from overwhelming the room.“I chose the color because it’s timeless, and I knew it would make the room cozy and sophisticated,” she says. “Painting out the molding and adding pops of color make it feel young and fresh, clean and modern.”Light fixture: Ballard Designs; rug: Patterson, Flynn & MartinSee more of this roomMoreWorld of Design: 11 Book Lovers and Where They Like to ReadAim High: What to Know About Adding a Library Ladder

                          This room was previously an unused one where unloved furniture sat empty. But interior designer Cory Connor saw the potential, using a sea of blue punctuated by pumpkin orange to make it inviting. Extensive bookshelves with a window seat tucked between them create a library within a family room.

                          22. This handsome window seat created by designer Cory Connor is situated between two bookcases that have a library ladder.

                          6. Add a reading nook. A window seat between two bookcases makes for an easy reading setup. For extra storage, choose a window seat that can be opened as if it were a large trunk.

                          4. Deep Blue Proves a Hot HueA neglected living room gets transformed into a new family lounge and game room. Cool feature: Built-in bookshelves and trim are painted in a striking Newburyport Blue. To keep the dark color from feeling oppressive, the designer left the ceiling white and used wallpaper, as well as paint, on the walls.See more of this family lounge

                          The stool shape and size to go in front of fireplace. Different color.

                          Consider painting the den a bold color. Paint the bookcases too blend in.
