I can deal with small spaces, but I do dream of more bookshelves. Specifically, a library-living room like the narrow but stylishly laid-back Rayman Boozer-designed example here. Remember when Boozer's own apartment made the May 2006 cover of Elle Decor? (Blue interior above.) It was an inspirational issue for everyone who dwells in cramped or modest quarters.
Boozer really excels at working with those classics we've been talking about this week -- camel back sofas, trad brown chests, Chinese export lamps. Often he spices them up by placing them in vibrantly colored rooms with great textiles. Check out his online portfolio to see more.
