The little imp of logic suggests that when the parlor was turned into a living-room, then, by the same token, the living-room became a parlor – Lillian Hart Tryon
While flipping through internet pages, I encountered photographs of a restored 1887 Queen Anne home in Pennsylvania. There is a round rug in the parlor and I wondered how one of my rugs would look in a similar setting. I made a render to find out.
We take kindly to the customs of the living-room, because they follow the line of least resistance; but we welcome opportunities to practice there the graces of the more austere parlor – Lillian Hart Tryon
As I worked on modeling my parlor scene, I began to wonder about parlors. Russell Lynes wrote an engaging piece discussing parlors. In his article, he quoted Lillian Hart Tryon, whose quotes appear in this post. I am delighted to have found Lynes’ and Tryon’s writings. Both will most likely provide fodder for my future posts.
