Harriet HomeHarriet is a parentless young woman who is staying with the woman who educated her. The home is modest but nice.
The sitting room of a home in the regency area would be the "best decorated" since this was really the primary room that visitors would see. It would hold all the fancy items the household owned. Here Harriet (left) sits with Emma (right). England was fairly cold in regency days - a fire would help to keep away the chill.
