What an awesome library!  You could do this in any small room of the house... put glass french doors with curtains, and a few good chairs/lamps--- would feel like Mom's library.  I like the colored shelves=)

If you have a blank wall what better way to give it life than sturdy built-in bookshelves, like these in the home of gallerist Rebecca Hossack. Note the way that the size of the shelves subtly increases, so that small light books snugly fill the top, while the largest, heaviest tombs have ample room at the bottom.

Library. One of these days I'll have one.... If just to show my grandchildren what a book looks like.
