I figure that considering we're looking to buy in the mountains that a good home library should include a cosy fire of some description.
I'm a fan of all things green, so it's fitting that the 1st two images use different shades of what I always find a relaxing colour...
I'm also a fan of dark colours so this one appealed to me. I think far too many people worry that a dark colour in a small space will make it appear smaller - If you like it go for it I say - the space is what it is!
The semi industrial look appeals to me... Not sure how many disused warehouse conversions I'd find in the mountains - would love to get my hands on one if it were on offer!
I think a good library should also be home to great art. Not sure ours will be quite as grand as this one. (Well the cornices and ceiling treatments are a bit grander than what I'm imagining anyway!)
At the end of the day, much like the rest of the house we're aiming for - as long as it has character and is filled with love we'll be happy!
As I look at these images I can imagine being in the mountains on a cold rainy day, much like today - tucked away in the library, hopefully with an open fire crackling...
If you have a favourite pic let me know... I'd love to hear your thoughts!
