"Library" Complete!

First, let me warn you.  You'll look at these pics and think, "library??  Where are all the books?".  Easy answers: 1) DH now has an e-reader, 2) we actually only keep our favs and give away the rest, 3) we had to add doors to our bookcases to keep our dog from "reading" them, LOL.  You can't really see the top 3 shelves of them that great, but they are full of knick-knacks from vacations.


I know my style is quite simple, but it works for us :)

I love the library, and the whole room! Those colors really look great together.


I have simple taste, as well. I LOVE the pics I see in the PB catalog or elsewhere, where they have shelves and tables packed with tons of cool-looking, eclectic stuff. But for some reason, I can't pull it off in real life. I always feel like it looks awkward instead of casual and thrown together. (Kind of like messy curls/waves. LOL!)

@Amanda - what is that neutral color you have on your wall if you don't mind sharing?? I'm looking for a lighter brown shade for our kitchen/dining room, and I might need to do that color!! :)

Kristen, I'm guessing you mean the color that isn't the accent wall?  It was a builder color and they didn't leave us behind a can of paint :(  However, we matched it to Behr's Toasted Wheat.  I quite like it for a warmer neutral!

Ditto the others, I love your style and naste.  Your library looks so relaxing and welcoming!  I'd love to curl up on the chair Athena is on !
