What's your favorite decorating term?

Via Pinterest.

Mine is "enfilade," an interconnected group of rooms arranged usually in a row with each room opening into the next.

I would agree that "enfilade" is in my top 5, but somehow "loggia" gets me going.

an enfilade is wonderful, however, I'd rather have a folly...

in an enfilade (my favorite decorating term); it is important to note that all the doorways are lined up....one with another . that is the point of an enfilade. If one stands at one end.....one can see directly through all doorways all the way to the end....of the building....or the end of the "enfilade"!!

Just so it is clear!
