Libraries are for book lovers! In today's busy world, we often don't take enough time for ourselves or for sitting down with a good book. Imagine a space dedicated to collecting and displaying the books you've collected over the years, while also providing a retreat to which to escape.
Some library design ideas that you might want to consider for your home include:
- Wood paneling Traditional library decor often features dark wood paneling. The addition of wood paneling provides depth and character to the space while elevating its profile as a luxury escape. Alternatively, add an element of surprise by painting the paneling a rich color, or using some of the interesting reclaimed wood options available in today's marketplace.
- Rich color palette Book spines, arranged one after another on shelves, naturally provide a variety of colors in the library. You might consider complementing these books with rich colors, such as greens, browns and reds.
- Unique decor A library is the perfect space for adding unique decor or a surprise accessory. Items such as an antique wood airplane propeller or vintage world maps can add a personal touch to any design.
