A Home Library

It could be a spare bedroom, a den, a feature wall in living room, the landing area of your staircase or built under a window.

You too can find a place to keep your books that are lying around the house, check out these fabulous home libraries that are bursting with inspiration. We have attached some Benjamin Moore colours so you can duplicate a similar look for your home.

Is it a small room? By painting the built-ins shelves the same as the walls, it really does open up the space. This light blue room above is painted in 2053-50 Passion Blue by Benjamin Moore.


Formal living rooms aren’t always used very often but this room is instantly more useful while acting as a home library as well. For a similar look paint walls, shelves and mouldings in AF-100 Pashmina by Benjamin Moore.


This den doubles as a library with built in desks for kids to do homework. We love this look and for a similar look use HC-180 Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore.


This isn’t just a great view, it is now a functional corner with lot’s of storage for books. Trim and built-in’s are painted in CC-40 Cloud White by Benjamin Moore.


A little cozy landing area in the hallway can easily be transformed into a library with a shelves and a bench to read on. For a similar look try OC-117 Simply White by Benjamin Moore.


You may have a room or condo with very high ceilings and little floor space, this is perfect for high built-ins like the photo above with a sliding ladder. For similar look try HC-105 Rockport Gray by Benjamin Moore.


This armoire above is perfect for the homeowner on the go, who know they will be moving but still wants a library space without investing in built-ins. For a similar look try HC-154 Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore.


Even if it’s just one feature wall in a living with built-ins, it’s still a library. This room was painted in OC-66 Snow White by Benjamin Moore.
