    Out of all of them D, but none of them are great to be honest.

    well...i think we can safely rule out B

    Id say A; spacious, classy and full of historical character.

    If I had to choose it would be C, then I'd dance around like a robot all day.

    Well, B is a dive . . .

    C or D.

    None of them are all that appealing. Too OTT.

    I don't really like any of them. D reminds of Pride & Prejudice living rooms actually. Definitely not C or A. Between B and D, I'm not sure. I'm more used to something like B, albeit nicer and grander, so initially I might say that, although I could potentially get used to something like D.

    I'm not an expert but I'd say A and D are more sitting rooms than living rooms, I've always imagined a living room to be more practical and relaxed even in very big and opulent houses. So I'd have to say B despite D probably being my favourite room.
    According to Kate Fox (2004 watching the English) a "living room" and a "sitting room" are exactly the same. Bit a "sitting room" is a more archaic word and probably used by those from the Upper Middle Class and Upper Class, whereas a "living room" is a more commonly used word amongst working class - lower middle class people. I personally think Kate Fox talks a lot of nonsense, but the thought is still out there :beard:.

    I would go for C because I like the whole modern and minimal look

    A and D are too old and grand, but C looks too cold and unwelcoming.

    D!!!

    The first one is a little too grand, the second is a bit dingy and the third is too empty and cold.

    Hmmm, I always thought a sitting room was a 'best' room, usually only used for guests, and the living room contained the TV etc, and that povos only had the one living room, limiting the term to the middle and upper classes.
