Yes, a lounge room is a living room. :)

Thanks for the help Psychopoesie. :) 

Quick followup; is 'loundroom' even an actual term for it?  Just double checking since you used lounge room in the reply, which I did recognize. ;)

Where did you see it written that way? My guess would be that it's a typo.

Assumed it was a typo - certainly never heard that term used and I've lived in Oz all my life.

The word might sound like that if I had a bad head cold though. ;)

Now I want a loundroom. I'm thinking a massive one of those sound-proofed 'home theatres' but with lounges. Perhaps chaise lounges.
