What name do you give a room that doesn’t really have a name?
Most of the rooms in our house are named after their function, such as the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom etc.
But what name do you give a multi-purpose room that has no clear function?
I have taken over grand-daughter’s old bedroom and have been working on developing a room for myself, somewhere I can sew or read or iron or take an afternoon nap.

I began calling it my Craft Room, but it seemed that the room was more than that as I seldom do much in the way of craft work.
It is not my Bedroom, and we already have a Living Room (part of the open-plan kitchen – dining – tv area) and a Lounge (the sunken area next to the Living Room, where son has based his Office area).
Then we thought about Sitting Room. After all, I do do a lot of SITTING in there!
The room contains a recliner lounge chair, a bookcase, storage drawers and shelves, and will eventually have a table as well. Most of the day the sun shines into the room and it really is a very pleasant place to be.
So, it looks like this house now has a Sitting Room – set aside for the use of the Grand Old Dame who resides here! 😊
