Style Watch: Seattle-based Interior Designer Nancy Burfiend

Lately I've been loving the work of Nancy Burfiend from NB Design Group, an interior design company based in Seattle, Washington. When I saw the private library she designed, my heart just stopped.

 After watching Beauty and the Beast for the first time as a child, I fell in love with Belle's library and have since sought out countless design ideas should I ever be fortunate enough to have my own library someday. I love reading and while most of my reading has switched from books to blogs, there is nothing more perfect and inviting to me than to sit in a cozy chair by a fire for hours with my nose buried in the pages of a favorite book.

The use of black in this space is perfect. I love the time-worn look of the fireplace mantle and those wing-back chairs are gorgeous. The burnt orange touches are both cozy and luxurious, and what is more fitting in a library than a book page chandelier?

Her portfolio is full of beautiful design work:

Something about this painting below really speaks to me.
