San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 :: The Library

Although the San Francisco Decorator Showcase has closed it’s doors, I still wanted to share The Library by Geoffrey De Sousa. The San Francisco-based interior designer created a serene retreat bathed in rich neutral tones that doesn’t detract from the breathtaking views of the bay. The soothing monotone palette was inspired by the room’s Classical Revival mantelpiece. As a backdrop, hundreds of books painted in a creamy white line the dark traditional bookshelves. The faceless books add a wonderful texture to the room and are indeed thought provoking. They made me reflect on the future of printed books and how the digital age is transforming how we read books, magazines and news. Will a home’s library be a place of the past? I hope not. We all need a cozy place for quietude, intimate conversation and of course reading. Something similar to what De Sousa so beautifully created here.
