    "study door"


    I feel calmed and relieved when my husband, Steve, knocks at my study door in the middle of a fight, put his arms around me, and says, I love you. This is stupid. Lets just drop it.

    The 'study door' (both nouns) is the door to the study. I have never met 'study room', but that dictionary definition seems to refer to a room in a school - the sort of school I have no experience of - in which several people can study (verb).

    In the US, a study is a separate room, somewhat like a library, in a home. A study will usually only be found in larger homes.

    Here too. Mine is more of a broom-cupboard, though the estate agent when we bought it called it a 'fourth bedroom'.
