Let's face it - one of the best "accidental" decorative accessories is a book. I'm thankful for that because I think that's going to save them from actual extinction.
Whenever the opportunity is right for a project, I love
to incorporate built-ins into projects. Not only do they serve as a wonderful architectural element,
but they also provide a great opportunity to individually reflect a client's personality.
Here are some of my favorite examples past and present:
|I love wrap arounds!|
|Sorry about the clarity of this photo - it's from a foggy still of a 1931 film - but had to include because I adore the cartouche in the center - it's one of those perfect little details that make a room memorable!|
Very cool: Stanford Kay Book Abstracts Paintings
|Always a great idea: The combination Dining/Library Room|
|Love the 1940's vibe of this - who wouldn't want to bunker down here with a drink and a good read?|
|Little detail that I love: Personalized Book Plates and stamps. I mean really how perfect were Bob Hope's?|
