Our favorite image from Stephen Knollenberg's site and there are lots of beautiful images there, but this is the one for us.
First there is the chair, the shape of the dark table against the wall and the few items on the shelves. We gravitate to white walls and dark pieces so this is it. The red add the punch to keep it from being sweet, but with lines like this chair has there is no way this area can be anything but dramatic.
So we are wondering, can we pare down enough to have this look? Are all the books stored else where?
