Feminine Living Rooms We begin with a room that mixes an abundance of details, from a tufted sofa and striped draperies to an ornate mirror and a display of purses. The overall effect: girly, with French flair. Also note the clever incorporation of details such as a Saarinen table, which is often featured in spaces that are a bit more modern
Step-down or sunken living spaces have a long history that goes back to the late ‘50s. The style is making its way back to the modern interiors because of more practical purposes. This style of dropping the floor is necessary where raising the roof is not possible. The use of partitions, walls, or thresholds also facilitates smooth transition from one material to another, which is rather difficult with open floor plans characteristic of mainstream design.
Anything that injects the elusive old age charm to your living room is bound to make you love it. If you do have the habit of storing those sepia tinted photographs of your ancestral home, it would be easier to understand what it means to live around those charming old furniture designs and drapes.
