This large oval shaped room creates an alternated feel to the angularity of the other spaces. This soft shape is further emphasized by velvet walls above the wainscoting. Built in bookcases with hidden AV equipment & TV lifts maintain the period feel of this space.

Where did the chandelier come from? It's great. Especially with books. »
Why hang velvet draperies when you can really go all out and turn your walls into velvet?! If you look at the walls on top of the wainscoting here then you'll be able to tell that they're made of velvet. The rest of the room grabs your attention but the soft walls will manage to catch you off guard.
This room begs for a super formal tree, like the little Victorian one my grandmother gave me for my dollhouse when I was a kid. I would definitely place it in front of the window, though, after moving the chairs around the circle just a big.
Versatile, I like this! Quite a clever addition of texture with the velvet wall. A change-up of the light fixture, accessories and switch the furnishings to a smart leather set could bring this room to modern.
