Did you know that you can transform an old living room into a library? With that, you will ensure that your room serves two purposes at the same time. To give it even more character, you could use lacquered paint on the wall so that it can reflect light. Don't forget to provide a couple of antique sofas where you can sit when reading.

One of the best ways to decorate the classic English library is to use paintings, sculptures, and other art pieces. If you have a sizeable animal sculpture, you could put it on the side of the sofa to create a welcome contrast. You can also hand a couple of paintings in the space between the bookshelves to break the monotony.
It is also possible to build the bookshelves of your classic English library right into the walls' wood panels. Ideally, the room should have a huge window to let in natural light to illuminate the room, reflecting on the polished wooden shelves. Bring out the best of the room with books arranged on the shelves vertically or horizontally, whichever you prefer the most.

You can give your classic English library a retro look by combining classist ideas with the more modernist ones. There is no better place than the library to have your most valuable art pieces. You could also use an antique or modern chandelier to create the desired classic look. While at it, ensure the sofa's upholstery is a perfect match to the rest of the interior décor.

Sometimes it is hard to achieve a uniform style when decorating the classic English library. It is better to go for the more eclectic style (mixing different design elements). That may mean paying no regard to the harmonious existence of colors from the various aspects. You could also mix antique items with their modern counterparts until you have a working style.
Decorating the classic English library is easier if you know what you are doing. It doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg to acquire the different elements required to do the job. Sometimes all you have to do is to change a few features. So, why don't you try it today?
