Eating in Style





Here are a few eating areas that have caught my eye lately. They are all so different, but the one quality they do share is that they are unique. I am all about embracing what you love.

Paula, you really do have an eye for picking out the very best attention grabbers! One look at these images, especially the first and last, and I am hooked!

Maria said...

I love the chairs in the first and last even though they are so different, great inspirations!

Design Esquire said...

I love the second image - it's a good mix of fancy (the chairs) and casual (the hutch). Plus, the green color is amazing. Love it!

The Zhush said...

I think the third might be my fave, even though its so simple. The paint job on the chairs is inspired!

Sarade said...

I love the potted herbs and lots of window light in the top photo. And the idea, in the bottom photo, of pink walls, is intriguing.

Joyce said...

I really like mixing things together that originally didn't start out hand in hand but fits like a glove in the end. xo

There is definitely something to love and something that catches my eye in each one of these. I remember the first time I fell for that first image, I adore the painted table, and the voluptuous pink flower arrangement, and the gorgeous chairs. Great round-up, Paula!

Love how different they all are!

Vanessa said...

I love the mix in all of them, especially the last image.

Heather said...

That pink dining room is very pretty! It's a really good shade of pink.

PS~Erin said...

Those gray chairs in the 3rd (I think) image are so cool. And I do love that checker board floor in the first :-)

Stephanie said...

Love the chairs in the first picture.

Char said...

love the first three, the last is too fancy for me. the only thing is in the 2nd, love the color of the chairs but they are a bit heavy for me.

sarah, flourish design + style said...

I can't even tell you how much I agree.. I think we all at some point think we need to decorate with the trends, or like everyone else..If we all decorated with what we love I think there would be a whole lot more inspiration! ( did that make sense? ) The first image reminds me of you and your sweet little plants..I picked up a few for the basement :)

Haven and Home said...

Love the turquoise chairs! I am pretty sure the last one in House Beautiful.

Stephanie Sabbe said...

Love those chairs with the mustard seat. I am in the market for new dining chairs, that gives me a good idea.

A Perfect Gray said...

yeah! those gray painted chairs with the gold seats. wow!

Tara said...

A good friend of mine has a kitchen very similar to the first photo. I just need to find a blue bar/cabinet. What a great pop of color!

Mary said...

Oh I love the photo collage - and those flowers! Stunning.

Love the black and white floor! Oh, and the New Moon party looks like too much fun!

Sarah said...

These are fun to look at. Love the black and white floor.

So pretty. I've never seen the two image before and I promptly saved it to my computer. Love it!

Lavender and Lilies said...

I love the pops of color in these rooms. They all have a sort of eclectic feel too.

I love the photos in the second to last picture. It would definitely make you feel better to eat alone if your friends and family were smiling at you!

I like snazzy looking dining chairs like all these. The turquoise blue look so AMAZING with the dark wood floor.
