Library Inspirations As Project Begins!

Started a library project this summer and at this point the room is in disarray!  The additional carpentry is added, electrical is done now we are waiting on paint! There are some basic things already ordered and in the process of ordering.  This is what has been ordered thus far... still to be determined are console and side tables, accessories, additional art and we are creating a bar are in to a corner cabinet area with mirror backing and glass shelving.  Here is a glimpse of what I have so far be installed and the reveal will be in September.

    Ok, you have inspired me today; I have a loft library/bedroom upstairs that needs a little attention but a little work that can be done in a DAY! What you feature here is what I already have, but just in a bit of disarray!!!!

    How gorgeous is that Chesterfield sofa, non? I had wanted the gray velvet version, but it stand too long for my room, and a little steep in price, but the glory, the dream!

    Thank you dear one for visiting yesterday, and for inspiring my organizational goals for the day!!! Anita
