The Ohio Period room is furnished in the colonial revival style. This room is decorated in carefully coordinated colors and fabrics popular during the 1920s. The walls are painted a light gray called “French gray” by designers during the early twentieth century. Contrasting colors were also the rage during the 1920s, apparent in the upholstery textiles of the curtains and sofa. The brilliant crimson silk damask upholstery is a 1920s reproduction of a 17th-century French fabric. This provides a tasteful contrast to the light gray and carefully picks up the tonal hues of the Oriental carpet. The printed cotton upholstered easy chairs by the fireplace provide another layer of color and pattern to this very sophisticated interior.

The Ohio Period Room Virtual Tour is a gift of the Ohio Society DAR.
