Romantic Modern Library

A quiet, contemplative space to browse books and magazines.

"There's something about stacked books that makes me really happy," says homeowner Katherine Yaphe of her main floor reading area. The dark walls create a moody ambiance that's further enhanced by a graphic honeycomb-patterned rug.
