Bookshelves Over Doorways

I’ve been seeing more bookshelves surrounding doorways and really like how it can make a small space feel really cozy and intimate. It’s perfect for a room like the library above. Or, if you’re short on space, extending the shelves to the ceiling and using the area above doorways (which is usually empty) is a …

Hi, everyone, how was your weekend? Mine was so much fun beginning with our fantastic party at Huff Harrington Home on Friday night! We had a great turnout and it was so fun to meet FTRB readers and catch up with some old friends. Thank you to everyone who came out, including all of these …

More Bookshelves

Bookshelves are running a very close second to art walls these days as far as my obsessions go. I think I’ve said before that my nosey side definitely comes out when I see a bookshelf. I just love seeing what’s on them! I’ve posted a ton of bookshelves before like this one: but here are a couple …

Italian Magazines

When I went to stock up on magazines for the flight back from Italy, I headed first straight for these two. Then I saw the similarities: walls of books and the pops of yellow. Remember my fixation on yellow chairs? Well, I’m still fixated. And I always, always love a good bookshelf. Despite my design …

Home Libraries

Do you love books (like I do)? Do you have a million of them all over your house (like I do)? I’ve always liked the idea of having a library for all of my books: When we moved into our house, I planned on using one of our spare rooms for one. But as I …

The Best Bookshelf Ever + Name My Blog?

I’m positively floored by this piece by Ron Arad. It was exhibited at MoMA recently and is called “Oh, the Farmer and the Cowman Should Be Friends.” (Hmmmm.) It’s not for sale, as far as I know, but I can see someone much more competent than me DIY’ing something similar. How cool would this look …

Wanted: A Library

I have always wanted a library. It’s one of those things I thought I’d have in my grown up house. I don’t have an entire room to turn into a library but maybe it’s time to carve out a space for one somewhere. I’ve seen a lot of dining rooms doubling as libraries and I …
