Love the lower shelves for displaying art books, etc. - would be great for kids' books, too. Steven Meisel's home in Beverley Hills. (Architecture: Marmol Radziner + Associates; Decorator: Brad Dunning; Photo: Roger Davies. From Architectural Digest.)
This clean-lined white home features bursts of color along with midcentury modern flair. Large windows allow ample natural light, which is supplemented by creative light fixtures including a Sputnik chandelier. Unusual features, such as a tall, carved fireplace surround in the living room, add visual interest to the home.
