Alcott’s Little Women: A RPG? Part IV

Previously I showed the dining room, now we finally arrive at Part IV for our Little Women RPG interiors. Here we take a look at the drawing room. “Drawing room” would be equivalent to a “living room” or “salon”, where guests are entertained with conversation and music.

Like the dining room, Neoclassical and Victorian elements are combined to create a room that is both fashionable and comfortable.

While the dining room is in warm tones of brown and beige to bring out the colors of the food and wine, the drawing room is themed in wine red to show off the beauty of the rose gardens. Stained glass windows feature a single red rose.

For the furniture I put together a sumptuous Louis XVI Parisian suite, a pair of armchairs in the Southern German style, and an Empire-style ocassional table. From the Little Women book we know that the Laurences had a piano that Beth liked to play. I was debating whether to add a piano in the drawing room, but thought of the spacious home as having a separate music room or parlor. Instead I added a miniature virginal, an antique piece for display.

The rug with a lustrous, velvety pile is an English Axminster. The wall is covered in a crimson-and-old gold silk damask fabric. Circles containing leaves pattern the decorative ceiling tile.

This is it for my Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women RPG fantasy.

    Now that’s an opulent drawing room. Amy March would have loved it here. :-)

    I second the opulent comment!
    The wallpaper pattern looks so large and 3D it’s kinda scary. It looks somewhat organic, too. Does anyone else see what I mean?

    • Classic damask wallpaper patterns would have even been bigger than what I resized for this render. Here’s an example by Zoffany, a well-known wallpaper and fabric manufacturer. This page here has a very nice collection of rooms with damask wallpaper. These days damask patterned wallpapers are available in affordable materials, but a century or so ago they were very expensive, often in silk and having gold or silver threads woven into the intricate weaves. Having a room covered in silk damask would have been a display of wealth, perhaps more appropriate for the Moffats (who seemed to like to impress others with their affluence) than the Laurences.

      I do get your point about the particular wallpaper shown in the render. The combination of gold on red background could be rather overbearing.
