On the Country Living site, we ran across photos of an unusual library set up - one in which the shelving catches your eye before its contents, thanks to a coat of a very...

...fearlessly vibrant paint color, Benjamin Moore's Prairie Green.

The built in shelves are fairly basic in their form, but feature a few unique details and touches (other than the color) - dentil molding cornices and, one of our favorite things, framed artwork hung on bookshelves.

The painted woodwork theme is continues throughout the room, with the glossy grey painted floor boards, a yellow Windsor chair and a blue-washed round table base.
