All About

An open bookcase is used to differentiate the living room from the dining room. Dowel rods are threaded through the middle of the shelves, so even though the spaces are separated, air and light still flow through. Louvered, wooden artwork is hung on the ceiling of both rooms to add height and more architectural interest.
