About the library: My home library is a room on its own. Note that our apartment only has three rooms. It doubles as our dining room and my ‘office’. On the right, which you cannot see, there is a fireplace (not working) with a mirror above it. Some of our friends fiend the wall with books in dark wooden book cabinets overwhelming. I think it has a bit of a wow-factor to it.

    veel groeten van Ans

    One way to deminish the overwhelming presence of the library is to make the shelves and cases a light color – perhaps the same color as the walls. This also showcases the books themselves, allowing them to blend their own colors and textures to the room decor. Works best in smaller rooms.
