Dining Room

My dream one day is to have a large enough dining room to have more than two or three people over at a time to enjoy food together. Our dining room/ foyer only has seating for three right now and we usually end up eating in the living room in front of the tv or laptops anyway. But as our families grow, the southern belle in me is dying to be a hostess. Here are some dining rooms I envy.

Love the centerpiece here. And direct access to the outdoors.

How about those beams and the floors! And the covered head chairs.

Smaller table but the patterns and pops of color are so inviting.

This one is my favorite simply because of the wicker chairs that my family used to have that I sat in for many family dinners that I hope to recreate.

Picnic table, bench seating and directors chairs. So different.

I adore the class and simplicity of this. The chairs, nailhead, flowers and French doors leading outside.

Metal chairs, stripes, lightbulbs and a wreath.

Grand ceilings, chalkboard, giant clock. I love how overstated everything is. But with neutral colors and natural textures, it's inviting and not overwhelming.

Happy (future) Hosting!

Twinkle for an Office Space

If and when I ever get to set up a real, functional office space, I'd love to have some twinkle like this to brighten things up.

If I have to share it with the business partner (and boyfriend), I don't see this happening. Oh well.
