Home Library Curator

"We love collaborating with kindred creatives like Christy Shannon Smirl, founder of Foxtail Books & Library Services. Christy brings a designer’s eye to the classic traditions of librarian and bookseller. Whether building a home library for a client or helping preserve, organize and appraise existing stacks, Christy balances artistry and symmetry, content and character as she curates collections at once sophisticated and timeless. Whenever possible, we recruit her talent to help layer intellectual style within our interiors as we did recently on a new project shoot. From placing the perfect trio of coffee table books to artfully stacking titles beside bedsides, Christy finds fresh ways to tell her clients’ best stories. We are thrilled to share her story with you."  For the full text of the article, click here.
