They Nailed It

I'm crazy for the door leading into this library and workroom. It's one part glamorous with a smidge of edgy thrown in the mix, and it certainly makes my standard interior doors look dreadfully boring and unadorned.

Traditional Home

I love the idea of a door covered with fabric and nailhead trim- it feels luxurious and, in the right place, it would make such a wonderful statement.

Just a magical detail:
to open that door must feel like
unwrapping a very special gift ... .

my husband and i have already decided that when we have a house a library is like #1 priority. were willing to sacrifice a dining room haha.
but this image definitely goes in the inspiration folder for someday...

I agree, a library is a must for our home! we have so many books already and they just take up so much room! only if we had space...and a fabulous door.
