2.  This traditional bookcase houses favorites and classics, all easily accessible.

bookcase_with_glass-resized-6003.  This library has a rolling ladder and rail to reach the high shelves and the books have been covered in neutral paper for a unifying look.  Hopefully they are not just for looks! the painted back of the bookcase makes the books pop and unites with the blue colors in the room.

Have a wonderful day and take some time to read something interesting and absorbing.
