Finally, the kids have moved out and your want to take that spare room and turn it into a Reading Room. Start with these key pieces: a figurative painting by Carol Levy from the Artists Gallery Warehouse Sale May 9-13 at Fort Mason; an antique wool Oushak rug from abc Carpet in NYC; Koele koa rocking chair from Martin and MacArthur in Honolulu, a Heritage Natural Spectrum by Verilux reading lamp; add lots of books from Penguin Hardcover Classics series.
Or maybe create a music room? We chose a large-scale color photograph by John Martin – his series about the San Francisco Opera – from the Artists Gallery Warehouse Sale. You’ll need a media cabinet like this one from Ikea. Add a cashmere throw from Schweitzer linens, and order the Arturo Toscanini: The Complete RCA Collection box set from Amazon.
