Another of my projects has earned a feature spot on the Ava Living website!
This project was so much fun! The homeowner is a book lover, and collects old and new fairytale books. She has several thousand of them, and when she and her husband built their new, Victorian-style home, the books needed a place of their own.
They found that home in a huge, two-story library with a cherry spiral staircase, custom tile fireplace and catwalk. The second level of the library leads to a reading room in the turret of the home (that round space that looks like a tower from the outside of Victorian-era homes!) and a secret spiral stair to the top of the tower. Fabulous!
The library was designed without windows, to protect the precious volumes inside. Instead, we used a “sky” light – a light fixture that looks like a blue sky…
I could have a ton of fun in a library like that…what about you?
