Designer Library

Serene, greyed white sitting room.

A creamy palette and French antiques like the trumeau mirror create a calming second-floor library in designer Julie Charbonneau's home. Built-in cabinets and shelves provide storage for books while overstuffed furniture creates many comfortable reading spots. A large pot of droopy branches instead of flowers lends a casual vibe.
