The Dining Room.

I was going to post about my wine cellar next, but I’m having a bit of trouble finding pictures of what I’m looking for. So up now, the dining room.

There will be lots of windows and doors to let the light shine in.


I imagine a big, light, solid wood table, with lots of seating for when our extended families come to visit during the holidays.

Table 1

It will have a beautiful, yet unique, chandelier.

And a little bar, nothing too extravagant. The real bar will be in my wine cellar.



It won’t be too decorated. I like simplicity for the dining room, with neutral colors and natural fabrics, like this table runner.

And I’ll have some wonderful cake stands and serving platters to serve lots of yummy things.

I absolutely love this wine rack for the wall.

But whatever the season, and whatever the d├ęcor, it will always have fresh flowers.

I love that candle chandelier - like I'm a little bit obsessedand it's SO easy to do - hmmm possible project over break - I think so!

I also love how the wine is diagonally displayed in that bar.

Feeling so inspired now :)

I've said this before but I'll say it again: I think our future homes will be very similar!

My grandparent's cottage in Michigan has a huge dining room and dining room table for all of the family (8 kids, 17 grandkids plus friends, spouses and significant others) to eat together. It's the best!
