A drawing room is a room in a house where visitors may be entertained & a historical term for what would now usually be called a living room. The name is derived from the 16th century terms withdrawing room, which remained in use through the 17th century.
In a large 16th to early 18th century English house, a withdrawing room was a room to which the owner of the house, his wife, or a distinguished guest who was occupying one of the main apartments in the house could “withdraw” for more privacy. It was often off the great chamber & usually led to a formal, or “state” bedroom. In modern houses, it may be used as a convenient name for a second or further reception room.
For me, a drawing room is this room where I withdraw, in order to think, create & draw.
