Home design ideas: Transforming an unused dining room into a library
When a kitchen addition with a dining area made the formal dining room redundant in her clients’ Westwood home, Nina Seed suggested turning it into a library. “They wanted a quiet space to read and shelves for all their books,” the designer says. Playing off the wife’s love of gardening, Seed cocooned the room in Farrow & Ball Green Smoke, a calming shade that brings the outside in. “It’s a relaxing space where everyone can stretch out to read and use the table to work or study,” Seed says.
