Do the Rooms in Your Home Have Names?

Do the Rooms in Your Home Have Names?

A name is important. A name can convey style and personality. Names give things a sense of place and time, in people, especially. But also in homes. I wrote recently about how to name your house, but now I have another question for you readers: Do the individual rooms in your home name their own names?

The photo above is from interior designer Jeffrey Bilhuber's Long Island home, featured in a tour on One Kings Lane. It's a massive place, with eight separate bedrooms. Each of those bedrooms is named after a Revolutionary War general, with the corresponding moniker stenciled on the door.

The White House, too, has names for its rooms, as we all know: The Lincoln Bedroom, the Oval Office. But I don't think you have to have a stately home to give your rooms their own signature. Heather and Aaron of the blog A Fire Pole in the Dining Room have nicknamed the guest room in their renovated firehouse "The Captain's Suite."

So tell us: Do any of the rooms in your home have names?
