I love dining rooms. They often have so much elegance and beauty, but I feel like they are frequently the formal room of the house that is never used, except for holidays and other special occasions. When I was growing up, we never ever used our dining room. If I had a beautiful dining space, I think I would try to use it a lot more than just on special occassions. Why let such a beautiful space in the house go to waste?
I feel like I will have a lot of trouble decorating my future dining room. There are so many different styles of furniture made for them, and I love so many different styles. I have a huge file of dining rooms I love saved on my computer, and each time I flip through them I am amazed with the different styles. However, I seem to love each style more than the next...I'll never be able to choose! (good thing I've got some time before I've got a dining room of my own to decorate...)
Check out this pretty room. I love the simplicity yet it definitely has an elegant feel.
There is one thing I am certain will be in my future dining room...a big beautiful chandelier!
