Early each day, as the home’s residents prepared for their daily routine, sunshine would brighten this cheerful 1930s morning room.
Such an old-fashioned space, typically adjacent to the kitchen, was a sort of casual sitting room or family room. It was specifically positioned in the home to catch the morning sun.
In the house photo shown, a floral bouquet wallpaper set the scheme for this cheery informal room, and all the colors — rose, green, and shades of yellow — in the furniture, rug and accessories echoed the flower tones.
The bay window, with its profusion of plants in wire stands, provided a winter garden that was protected from direct sunlight by semi-sheer white and green striped tieback curtains.
Comfort and charm was expressed in the classic dark wood furniture, the carpet, and the two distinct textures of upholstery fabrics.
