The drawing room is a concept mostly from a bygone era, found in grand homes designed for entertaining (think of the after-dinner socializing on Downton Abbey). But there are many elements in these well-thought-out spaces that we can apply to our homes today.
Light cabinets are the usual way to keep your utility room feeling fresh, but how about considering other options? A quick makeover with a darker shade, such as this elegant navy blue, imparts a modern country look, particularly when paired with aged brass taps and hardware.
Moving the kitchen to where the living room once stood was a key change. A combination of fixed and operable windows over the sink offer cross ventilation and views of the park across the street. A long window seen on the upper right side of this photo allows morning light inside, but at a height that provides privacy from neighbors
Combine style with function. In this utility room, the owners have chosen materials that are both attractive and practical. The countertops are a hard-working wood that lightens up the space, while the sink is deep enough for hand-washing clothes and scrubbing muddy boots.
