Home Tour: Emily Meyer's House in Palo Alto

Book It
The home's more dramatic upgrades include a finished basement for kids' crafts, a new closet in the master bedroom, and a customized library just outside it. "My husband's undergrad degree was in Constitutional history," says Meyer. "Liberal arts and the classics are extremely important to him, so he wants these books to be physically around for the kids as they grow up."
