Sunday Inspiration

I was drawn to this room because of the huge bookshelves and the overall relaxed feeling of the space. It is a good example of getting the mix right and a keeping the look liveable. There are gorgeous spaces that are out there that I can't help but wonder where they put down a drink or curl up with a book. I think about what it must look like when the kids play in there. In short, they are too perfect to really live in but this room is not. The rug, Saarinen table and Eames chair (far right) work nicely with the English arm sofa and traditional chair. The green curtain adds a little drama without being ridiculous.
I just want to jump on in and spend a little time relaxing.

I'm loving the built-in bookshelves and have always thought having a ladder to reach the upper shelves of the bookcase would be cool.
