Dining Room as Library

Posted on: February 12, 2009

I’m tempted to borrow a few tips from designer Thomas Pheasant, writing for House Beautiful Recently:

“If you have a dining table that stands dormant most of the time, turn it into a library table. Collect beautiful books and create small stacks around the perimeter of the table. Place a large-scale object — like a globe, a piece of sculpture, or a fantastic topiary — in the center. Then place a small object on top of each stack. I have used tea caddies, magnifying lenses, crystal spheres. Pick anything that interests you.” -Thomas Pheasant

Laurel Street Blog

Nate and Louis

Well, hey there. I'm Nathan and this is the Laurel Street Blog. It's a place for talking about design, decor and DIY (with small amounts of snarkery snuck in). I'm a pretty restless guy who loves house projects and lives in a 150+ year old cottage on Laurel Street in New Orleans. Since the house always has something going on with it (or falling off of it) I'm subsequently blessed with a never-ending supply of Web content to share. Oh - and you can drop me a line anytime Enjoy!

Can I get a tweet up in here? Follow along @LaurelStreet
