Bookshelves in The Home

There is something so heart warming about home libraries with row upon row of books, so many stories and so much knowledge, all right there!

An industrial librabry in a Paisian home. Designed in two parts, the bottom half accommodates large art books, and the upper half novels. To access it, a large metal staircase, inspired by those seen at the airport. In the center, a small niche is for hanging pictures. The lighting consists of large metal suspension acquired at the flea market.



An elegant sitting and reading room with a beautiful library. Loving the window!



The Reading Room, John Rylands Library, Manchester.

A warm and cosy place to sit and read.



Paint the bookshelves and walls in white and make a more cluttered room filled with books and items appear light and spacious.


Make use of space in ingenious ways such as this:


Modern home library with an amazing fireplace.


Modern and chic home library in black.


and for those of you who need more here is a little bookshelf heaven gallery!

Carpentry Inspired Loft

A loft in Florence designed by architect Alessandro Capellaro. Alessandro discovered timber in the bottom of an alley and was instantly inspired to create this amazing loft full of original and unique pieces of furniture.

Stacked wooden urns separate the kitchen and guest bedroom.

Wooden lockers add warmth to the dinning room.

In keeping with his bargain hunting nature, Alessandro Capellaro, found this awesome blue vintage chair on the street.

The wooden lockers surround the sofa and provide the ideal storage for the wood chunks to be used in the fireplace. A series of portraits of Peter Manzo decorates the walls.

In the bedroom the entire concept comes into it’s own with the wooden crates providing the frame for the bed, as a bedside table and bookshelves!
