The Great Room – Inspired Space

The Great Room – Inspired Space

Grand American homes have a room I have always been so envious of, this room is called The Great Room. Although I am unsure of the history of this room, they appear to be similar to the sitting rooms in grand English homes. I think of them as a ‘good room’, sitting space, though always very luxurious. Unfortunately there is no way to work a great room into our Queenslander style home, but that doesn’t stop me dreaming about them.

The Great Room



Such a strong masculine room this great room. So many of the great rooms I have admired have high ceilings, or voids above them. This adds to the grandness of the room.

Gorgeous big windows to bring the outside in. That fireplace creates such a romantic feel to this room.



Fireplace, comfy lounge, built in cabinetry and a void above, all that characteristics of a Great Room.

I adore the windows in this room. Such a grand space!

This space is amazingly huge! I love the exposed timber beams, so a grand touch.

Great rooms don’t really need to be this extravagant or big, while we don’t have the space for a great room in our home, we are adding a similar space within our new sitting room. A more formal space for us to gather and read a book, or share a wine.

What room would you add to your home if you could add anything? Have you a formal sitting room?
