A very nice two-story library in a house in Houston, Texas. The large room has a mezzanine balcony running around most of three of the sides for upper bookshelf space and the fourth wall consists of the grand, three-story spiraling staircase that forms the center of the house. And the shelves are filled with books – not always evident in real estate advertisements. The floors are made of slate tiles (not too cold underfoot in Houston!) and they are covered with a large oriental rug in the center for comfort in the generous seating area. Beautiful.
