Our library is the ‘Reader Before and After’ feature (pages 48-50) in the September 2008 issue of Home Magazine!

My Library in Home Magazine, September 2008

This is what June’s photo shoot was for. They photographed the studio and my office as well, but those are just on file and I don’t know if they’ll use them at any point.

Home Magazine, September 2008

The library (er, excuse me, the “book nook”) looks fantastic. Thank you, Beth Roehrig and Home Magazine!

    Thanks everyone! Yes, it looks like I made it just in time. That’s too bad about the magazine – I like Home.

    I really need to get some photos of the stairway – sorry if you’ve been waiting! Between these photos and the ones with the new TV, you can pretty much see what was done.

    To answer a few questions, the ceiling color is “flowering herbs” from Benjamin Moore and the stairway color is “campground” from Behr. The bookcases aren’t custom or fancy built-ins, they’re Billy bookshelves from IKEA. And the magazine found me through the blog. :)

    Your curtains are so much fun – they are funky, yet not overstated. What an accomplishment to have your room in a magazine. I just stumbled upon your blog this evening, and will be giving it some link love :)
