Books can be one of the great pleasures in life – staring at an overburdened bookcase with tomes spilling onto the floor is not. Aim to keep only the books you love and those you will read again, and let go of the rest. Your living room will thank you.

In keeping with the warm, minimalist elements featured elsewhere in this California ranch house, this nook has cedar ceilings, Sheetrock walls, exposed timber framing and structural steel windows.

If you have a fine linen sofa, try pairing it with cotton voile pillows; a velvet sofa would call for something thick and luxurious, like wool (or more velvet).
