How to Recreate Palo Alto’s Rinconada Library in Your Own Master Bedroom

Posted by Larry Fox on Jan 26, 2017 10:33:30 AM

I recently got into a somewhat heated debate with a colleague about a very pressing current issue—e-readers versus paperbacks. While my opponent made some good points about accessibility, I couldn’t concede. You just can’t beat the feel of crisp pages and the smell of fresh ink—and those are things that your tablet just can’t provide (yet).

One of my main selling points in the support of real books was, of course, our client base. Ever since the new Rinconada library renovations completed, many people have walked through our Campbell showroom looking for a very specific bookshelf configuration. They’re seeking an at-home, master-bedroom library—and as a proponent of real books, I am only too happy to oblige. Use custom bookshelves, cabinets, and drawers, to your advantage to create an ultra-functional library design for use in Palo Alto (or anywhere else we book lovers congregate).

Bespoke Library Shelving for your Los Altos Home Helps Foster Family Reading and Learning

Posted by Larry Fox on Mar 8, 2016 4:00:00 PM

The time we spend at home relaxing can be incredibly valuable for finding inspiration and personal growth. This space is especially important in a town like Los Altos, where most of the city is residential and our families get a fair amount of cultural exposure through books and media. By keeping your home stocked with a range of stimulating literature, you can have the world of culture at your fingertips, even in a suburban setting.

To bring that ‘window to the world’ into your own home, why not couple your bibliophilia with your love of interior design to create a custom library that showcases your personal and professional interests and ignites your passions? Integrating a library seamlessly into your existing office lets your room pull double-duty and keeps your favorite volumes within arm's reach for easy reference. Valet Custom's designers can integrate bespoke library shelving into your home in a way that supports spending your downtime productively with literature.
