SUBJECT: Interior design
the color selection for the library is horible. i can\'t concentrate on my studies when the walls look like vomit or some hospital in korea
Thank you for your comment. The colors were chosen by the interior designer who helped design the library's expansion and renovation. The colors were chosen to compliment the sky and trees visible through the many large windows. In the current arrangement of the library that is not clear because book stacks block most of the views. Eventually there will not be any books on public shelves in this portion of the library, and reasoning behind the color scheme should be more apparent. If you still find the color scheme offensive when the building is complete, there will be 30 group study rooms with white walls available for your use.
