52 weeks of the whole house - Anne Hepfer

Library by Anne Hepfer

A bit about Anne

Anne Hepfer is a New York native who relocated to her current home in Toronto, Canada to pursue her career as an interior designer. Her projects are inspired both by the natural environment and her cosmopolitan experiences in bustling cities. Fusing elements from a range of periods and cultures while maintaining a style that is both distinctive and timeless, Anne’s projects are both unique but fluid with one another, as they all have the Anne Hepfer signature of cozy with a touch of glamour. She earned a graduate degree in Interior Architecture and Design from Parsons School of Design and, not long afterwards, moved to Toronto to found her own interior design business.

Library by Anne Hepfer

Color, comfort and a setting for a prized art collection were priorities for this library, which takes most of its inspiration from nature. Sophisticated, sculptural furniture and one-of-a-kind accessories layered with patterns and textures that include lacquer, mixed metals, a stainless-steel desk base and nickel hardware on cabinets and drawers were perfect complements to the noteworthy art.

Designer Q&A

What is the most important thing to consider when designing the library?

Comfort. This is a room in which the homeowners will settle down with a book or newspaper for a few hours, so it’s paramount that this space feels cozy. Using a fair amount of wood, rich textures and warm tones helps achieve this feel. Similar to the family room, the library is where the homeowners will spend a significant amount of time, so designing it with that in mind is key.

Do you think there are common pitfalls and mistakes that one might make when designing their library? As a seasoned veteran of design, can you share your advice on how to avoid them?

If you aren’t building the home from the ground up, keep as many of the original construction as you can during the renovation or remodel. Not only do these aspects tend to have a rich history behind them, but they can be a lovely complement to a more modern and current design. Often in older homes, the architecture is amazing as it is here with the paneled ceiling.
