‘The Keeping Room...an old fashioned way to gather'
In colonial times, there were no televisions, and keeping rooms were often used for sleeping. But the common thread between today’s and yesterday’s Keeping Rooms, is daily family gatherings…as is most definitely the function in this space!
It is Dragonfly Interiors' strong belief that color and fabrics are fundamental to a pleasing design result. With that in mind, the Keeping Room was designed with many layers of fabric in warm tones of teal and brown. Today, fabrics can be beautiful and highly functional, as well, and these fabrics will stand the test of time in their visual interest and their durability.
While not a large space, the varied elements and textures of the Keeping Room make it an enjoyable, functional, and visually comforting ‘place for keeping!'
While the fabrics set Dragonfly Interiors' course and were the initial inspiration, the grasscloth wallcovering, coffered ceiling, and magical lighting fixtures in the bay window, all serve to enhance the warmth of the room. The fireplace was reworked to appeal to the modern day uses of this ‘heart of the keeping room.'
