Ikea Shelves Into Built-in Bookcases :: I really love this. You could turn any room into a library with this idea. And you don't need ikea for it, either.

this could have gone in "home library love", but this area is so much more than that. the abundance of white, the beautiful wood, the curving staircase, the awesome loft/nook filled with books. (audible sigh)
Recess a seat between built-in bookcases, and invite readers to take a load off. This seat's creamy white paint and chunky baseboards complement the window's raised-panel casing. | Photo: Eric Roth | thisoldhouse.com
Must have that ceiling if we do an office/library and maybe even bring out the ladder to place push pins on the map ceiling. Then you can lay down, look up and see everywhere you've been.
English Country Home .. Love the arches on the bookcases and fireplace - any chance we could retro-fit our fireplace to have an arch?
Beautiful library! Love the high ceiling and detailing. Just love it all. Leather chairs, wood paneling, dark woods. Very studious and thoughtful atmosphere. Perfect for work and research.
