Homebuilder Russell Alleman and designer Hillary Hooper teamed up to create this cozy home library. The dark walls contrast the light furniture to create a luxurious yet inviting feel. For a cohesive look on the shelves, the books are turned backwards to reveal yellowed pages rather than multi-colored spines.

The library at the LSU’s Kappa Kappa Gamma house is no joke. The large selection of cozy seating and open space curates a calm and clean space that makes this library the best place in the house for the girls to both hangout and study.
