Before we bought the house. The previous owner used it as a master bedroom as it is on the main level and they were older people. This room was originally the “Gentleman’s parlor” when the house was built in 1892.
Right after we moved in and I tore down the sun rotted curtains and was still sorting things.
Current day as a functioning studio/office. Don’t you just love that new built in bookcase? It is one of my favorite features of this room now. It doubles as an extra spare room with the futon, but honestly it’s one of my favorite places to read on a Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately right now it’s a sorting and staging area for just about everything, so please excuse the clutter.
