Bring Back the Dining Room!

As passionate advocates of all things old school, Andre and I like to eat our dinner every night at our dining table... we are unashemedly old-fashioned... it is such a wonderful opportunity for us to connect, chat and share the events of our busy day while taking the time to fully appreciate the meal we have prepared. So it stands to reason that the dining room should be a true focal point of the home...

While I love the idea of a refined and striking formal dining room like the ones featured in the first two images, I think the last image is far more up my alley! I just adore the contrasting tones and the classic, relaxed air of the rustic table and slip covered chairs. Do you have a favourite?

How refreshing to hear someone recommend bring back the dining room!

Ooh, the first one is gorgeous! We have a dining room but it doubles as my office and occasionally (when the guest room is occupied) a makeshift bedroom. Plus, we bought or dining setting in a hurry from Fantastic Furniture and, while it's fine, it's not especially inspiring. I'm so envious of those people who are willing to spend years searching for the perfect dining table (or the perfect any piece of furniture, for that matter!)

Oh I agree about dining rooms, we are putting one in our new home and that will be the only place to eat...inside that is!

I love the last one, it just looks like you could sit there for a while chatting.

Yes, that last one looks so appealing and comfortable. You just know that whatever was served there would be home-made.
