I’ve posted in the past about the large private home where my office is located.
The largest room on the main floor (easily 3 times as large as my living room) is the living room.
Honestly, if I lived here, I’d call it the grand salon.
The house itself is over 100 years old and the furniture in the living room hasn’t changed much in the past 50 years.
I’ve been here for 25 years and about the only thing we have upgraded (if you could call it that) is to have the 1906 Steinway piano tuned.
All the windows (4 sets) and French doors (4 sets) are identically curtained with blue heavy cotton brocade and carved wood valances. And three matching rugs delineate the three seating areas.
I have a detailed post on the unusual chair peach striped silk chair.
Some things never go completely out of style.
What’s your take on a room filled with antiques that are actually used?
