Caption reads: A small sunken room adjoining the living room in this house features banquette or built-in seating around the entire wall. A smart brown, red, and yellow plaid is used for upholstery. Toss pillows make the room a bright retreat for conversation group or for solitary reading. The fabric serves as the starting point for the color scheme, with neutral beige picked up for walls and a rich brown selected for the high-pile carpeting. Balance and unity are added by carrying the plaid fabric through to the windows in the living room. Furniture and accessories mix modern and traditional designs.
