I have no where near this many books, and while I do like to read a bit I doubt I’ll ever have a big enough collection for an impressive library like this. Isn’t it wonderful, though? I love the inky blue wall color and the combination of a traditional table with modern chairs. The tulip chair is not my favorite modern design but it is iconic and fun.

That rug is amazing. Lovely dining chairs and a killer gallery wall. I wish it had a chandelier and a shot of warmer color somewhere, but otherwise this is drool-worthy. The home of Julia Leach photographed by Patrick Cline for Lonny Mag, via pinkshirtsandcarwrecks.
This really melts my face off. It’s quite similar to the first photograph with its library style walls combined with a dining area, but it’s a bit more edgy. I love love love the black walls and combining that with the black dining set screams moody, masculine, bold awesomeness. The chipping on the chairs is a perfect touch of imperfection and seems to imply that despite the high-class of this room it really just wants to be a comfortable and well-loved nook for merry-making.

I love discovering trends in the images I’m drawn to. I had no idea I was hoarding shots with so many books! The home of Podge Bune photographed by Franscesco Lagnese for House Beautiful via My Favorite and My Best.
I am in love with this color palette, though it leans heavily on the piece of art. The colors in it are just lively enough to give this space so much energy yet the room’s clean lines and sophisticated pieces keep it classy and calm. Love it!
