Larchmont Residence Library
Before & After Story
The narrow library had kitchen quality wood stained book cases, poor lighting and a dated love seat. Most economical route was to rework the existing bookshelves by setting back the lower cupboards gaining half a foot of additional floor space. Adding recessed lighting and classic brass library lights warmed the shelving and room. Owner wished to reuse a green toned oriental carpet which established the color scheme. Once reconfigured, bookcases were painted green with a soft yellow back wall contrast and green grass paper helped unify the room. All window and molding woodwork was painted the same green cocooning the small room. A custom sofa with a 32" depth maximized floor space while we look for a low narrow coffee table. Once all the above was in place, the original curtains snapped back !
