I have a real obsession with doors.  When I travel I’m always looking for beautiful magnificent doors to photograph.  All of the pictures here, with the exception of the last one, are taken by me while traveling lately.  Via my Instagram

The most beautiful home libraries with black bookcases via belle vivir

I love the black and red bookcases contrasting the pale green walls in this home library.

I was perusing interior design images a few days ago and noticed that the most beautiful home libraries didn’t shy away from color.  Even in houses where the rest of the interior was prominently white, the studies were surprisingly rich in deep colors, perhaps because of the coziness and regal feeling that rich colorful rooms provide.  In this case no better place for those characteristics to exist than in a home library.  Below, a few of the most beautiful home libraries I’ve seen lately.  Enjoy!
