Home Library Inspiration Board

I've got a fun week ahead. Over the past couple of months, I've been working on putting together this home library for a client. My first two room designs, the Coral and Kelly Green Home Office and Global Backpacker Bedroom rooms where well received by the homeowners, so I'm trying another full room makeover. 

I wanted to share the inspiration board for this library living space with you.  It all started with the Stockholm Green Sofa from IKEA. It's definitely the star of the space. I want this sofa in my home - soon. I'm a big fan of neutrals when it comes to big furniture pieces, but this is just too fabulous not to take a huge color risk on. 

I'm pairing this lovely emerald green with splashes of gold/yellow and strong navy blues. I've thrifted lots of really cool items to go alongside the books in the shelves. I've got lots of pattern and some great textures. It's going to be a perfect space to curl up with a great book and a cup of coffee. 

If you'd like to know more about the sources and inspiration pieces in this board, just leave me a comment below.  

What you think about adding color in a large piece of furniture versus just in accessories?  What color are you willing to take risks with?  I never can go wrong with green, it's in every room and every shade in my house.  


  1. THAT COUCH. Wow. I love this color palette! I'm all for going bold in color for furniture!

  2. Where are the framed map panels from?

    1. I think they are from the brand Umbra. I'll check on it for you.

  3. Ooo, this is going to be a stunning room! I love the yellows, blues, and greens together. We have a very lovely grey couch that is only a few years old and does not need replacing---but that hasn't stopped me from ogling a gorgeous vintage navy couch I saw in a local shop! I think if it's a color that a person loves and has used for years (like you with emerald green!), then they should totally go for it even in bigger furniture pieces!
