That IS an awful shade of green!

I really like it.  The chair doesn't look too comfortable and I would use less green, but the room is great.

Love the design, but (as others have posted) I would alter the shade of green.

That must be Gary Goben's Olive Club headquarters, @stevieb

Re: Library Nook...

Oh, I really like this, but how do I reach the higher shelves?

The only thing missing is a good reading light.

I love green, but I would definitely lighten things up here! I do like the layout. Smiley Happy

I have to admit that I love olive green (and olives too) but there is a lot of it here. What I would do with this space is replace the chair with a larger French style chair with an ottoman in a less austere fabric... I'd also add a side table with a pretty blue and white reading lamp. I'd most likely also go with something different at the windows... Overall though, I really like this nook... I think the built-ins are great...

I like the structure, too, @stevieb and I am liking your color and style options for those changes.

I am just worried Gary's club would have to find a new headquarters. Woman Wink
