As a follow-up to last week's column, I have photos for my contribution to the Big Window Challenge contest. I know this is already all over the internet, but I wanted a few pictures of the completed project under my by-line.

I was charged with creating a set of trompe-'loeil bookcases to round out the concept of a writer's lair, in a play-set palette of dark browns. The inspiration was tompe-l'oeil painting and frescoes of yore, especially the Gubbio Studiolo at the Met, a room made of wood marquetry. Go to the site page to see the other windows, details on the wallpaper and furnishings and vote for your favorite window.
