Study Time!

I love when a designer's portfolio has a consistent component. I was recently perusing Jed Johnson's portfolio and noticed that almost every single one of their projects included a wood paneled library. I love how the same type of room can be done so many different ways.

Which library is your style? Traditional, soft and light like the one on the top right? Or dark, modern and masculine like the one on the bottom left?



A little secret, two of these rooms are ones I've actually been in, and let me tell you, they are stunning in person!
 
Thank you so much to everyone who filled out the survey. It was so incredibly helpful to get your feedback, and hopefully it will help to make TTS even better!
Have a great weekend!! xo

  2. Oooh - I love these! I love how they're masculine in a way that can be perfect for a girl too. My fave is the top left with the black and white graphic Moroccan rug!

  5. I think I like the bottom right. Just the lines and simplicity. But then old libraries like the one of above are so mysterious and wonderful in their own way.

  9. Love the bottom right -- it's so bright and airy but really cozy and luxurious at the same time.

  10. I hope that one day my house has a library! Or at least some killer bookshelves.. Loving the one on the bottom right, I could totally cozy up on one of those couches with a book!

  11. It's so hard to pick! They all look so cozy and perfectly decorated. I think I prefer the hard and masculine. Seems a little more like a room to snuggle up with a book in or get down to some serious business when you're trying to escape the rest of the world!

    Great rooms!

  13. I adore every single one. Which leads me to why I'm not an interior designer..... they all look so similar to me that I can't possibly answer your question, ha!
