What she said about it: "This room does dual duty as a library/music room. My house was built in 1907 and this room would originally have been known as the parlor. This room is my favorite because it is the last room that I decorated! It's also special as it's where my kids create and play wonderful music. I also love sitting in my chair reading (which I picked up for a screaming deal from Anthropologie) while sipping a G & T.
It's quite a difficult room to decorate because it has a corner fireplace, two massive pocket doors, a wall of windows, and just one long wall. After 15 years of living in the house I finally realized what to do with the long wall; I hacked some Ikea Billy bookshelves together to make a floor to ceiling bookcase. This helped ground the space and make it more functional. I arranged some of the books by subject and some by color so as to not visually clutter that side of the room."
