At the very top of my to do list, is start painting the library, so that I can finally style and enjoy. The library was one of the first things that sold me about the house, it’s a dream come true for me. Now that we are coming to the end of the first part of our renovation, and we are getting busy with football season and the children’s schooling, we are losing a little motivation, the cooler weather on the way is not going to help either. So spending time planning and dreaming is really important to get us moving again.
I plan on styling the library to be quite a masculine room, this room doesn’t have the decorative pressed metal ceilings like the bedroom, dining and lounge rooms, so I believe whatever it’s original purpose, it was to be a ‘mens’ room. When I say masculine though, I don’t mean like a dark smoking room like I imagine them to be in the time the house was built, I just mean I won’t be filling it with fluffy cushions and pretty fabrics. Here is a little of what we are looking to for inspiration……
How would you decorate my library? Do you have an inspirational picture you could share?
