Traditional Home: Pacific Palisades Estate Library


The library offers ample display for the homeowner's impressive collection of books, mineral specimens, and fine art. The focal point of the library, a massive oak paneled fireplace is original to the house. With the original oak mantle restored and a new stone slip and hearth, this room creates a richness further embodied by the American walnut floors. Expert craftspersons were employed to ensure perfection in every detail. The centerpiece features a brilliant painting by Los Angeles based artist Kevin Moore.


By preserving and restoring the original brass chandelier, it is made perfect for use in the library. A comfortable armchair features a beautiful embroidered pillow that was handmade in India by Bandhini Design. The antique Kilim rug is from Turkey and supplied by Grey Willow Goods. A painting by Allie Ihm adds life to the deep oak bookcase.
