I’ve been drooling over this gorgeous blue library ever since I saw it in the June 2013 issue of House Beautiful. It is so inviting and cozy..perfect for these cold winter days! The walls and woodwork are painted a deep saturated color- Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue and the ceiling is tented with a Michael S. Smith Indian block fabric, Jasper. How amazing is that!?! The tufted sofa is upholstered in a blue Schumacher silk velvet… if I was to curl up on that with a good book, I don’t think I’d ever want to leave! The pair of gold & mirrored tables and wall sconces provide sparkle, while the lighter area rug and roman shade keep the room from feeling too heavy.

I love books…reading them and holding them and turning pages (You won’t find me on a Kindle). Our house has bookcases full of them, and you’ll find an ever-growing stack of books next to my bed. They also find resting places in baskets, on coffee tables and stools, and on the piano.
This is SO me…
