Dining in Style


I came across this image while browsing on this fabulous new to me blog. I adore the way the windows push out, the fireplace, the iron based round table, and the chairs. Oh, and don't even get me started on the mirror, chandelier, and floors. I would love to dine here minus the kiddos, I could only imagine what the lovely seats would look like after.

Very chic, what a lovely lighting fixture with the candles

Cassie said...

Can just imagine eating there both during the day and at night with those amazing windows or with that totally gorgeous chandelier! Wow

What a gorgeous sun-soaked room!
I love the 'chandelier.' I would be afraid to eat in those chairs, though. I'm a stainer! :)

Melissa said...

This is so relaxing! And I'm going to bet those chairs are washable...here's to hoping, right?

Char said...

beautiful...but what are those floor fixtures?

Design Esquire said...

I love it. The views out the windows look stunning too.

Staley Mc said...

I love that chandelier! I am a sucker for a cool chandelier!

Blueprint Bliss said...

Beautiful space!

And kids = slipcovers so it all works out!

The Zhush said...

So lovely...and I'm not above putting towels on my own children's seats, when we all dine in our dining room, not exactly Mommy Dearest...(but some may say a little overboard).

Vanessa said...

Love everything about this dining room and can only imagine the great dinner parties to be had!

Haven and Home said...

This makes me want to paint the casings of my windows dark even more!

The Neo-Traditionalist said...

LOVE these chairs----such a modern way of going the slipcover route. Their lines are so elegant! Thanks for sharing with us. XO

That's a dining room with a statement. Bold and elegant!

Tara said...

I agree, those windows are great!

The Southern Lady said...

All of that natural light-it's breathtaking! And at night, by chandelier light or candles, I bet the room would just shine.

What a beautiful space...and so different !

Marija said...

Ah! That is my fave dining room image (thanks for the nod!). How excited was I to see it when checking in here at one of my fave morning reads! Marija

I love large round dining tables for formal spaces, and those windows (plus the view) are amazing.

Fee-AMore said...

This indeed is dining in style. I like the push out windows and the fireplace that sits symmetrically in the area.

Sarah said...

Simply elegant. I love the large windows.

Lauren said...

I really like a fireplace in the dining room. For spaces that don't use a lot of fabric, they really warm up the room! Lovely.

Joyce said...

This room would shine even on the darkest day! I like it. xo

Kristin said...

OMG, that light fixture is tres gorgeous!

Sarah said...

Hey Paula...this made think that I would LOVE to see you post a couple of ideas of a practical dining space for a home with kids.
I want to redo my breakfast room area (I'm thinking a round table) and couple definitely use some inspiration...especially with the whole chair issue. I love upholstered white/ivory, but my spaghetti throwing toddler would turn it into artwork.
Any ideas?
Sarah

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

Oh, those windows! They are to die for. The whole room is!

Katie said...

LOVE the chandelier! And the table!
