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.
Rotate books to spark new interests. Once your bookshelves are neatly ordered, whether by subject, color or another method, it can be all too tempting to leave the books alone (they do look nice!) — but what’s the point of having a wonderful collection of books if you don’t get them out and read them? One suggestion for making the most of your home library is to periodically walk through and pull from the shelves a pile of books that currently interest you. Place these books around the house where you will notice them — on the coffee table, in a little pile beside your bed, etc. — and enjoy!
A rec room is perfect for parties. Love to entertain? Pool, pingpong and foosball make excellent icebreakers. Keep the mood lively with oversize signage on the wall, a colorful rug and quirky accessories.
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
