Growing up we ate dinner in our dining room two, maybe three nights a year: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Maybe when Grandma visited. Who else can relate?
As contemporary homes tend towards more open floor plans, the concept of a "formal" dining room seems to have faded with the changing times, and layouts. However, whether you have an eat in kitchen, a dining "area" in an open great-room, or a dedicated dining room, this special gathering place is still deserving of your stylistic attention!
In the next several posts we will tackle this area of your home, from table and chairs, to storage, to tabletop decor.
Hopefully you'll start using your beautifully styled space many nights (or days!) a year!
