Dining Room: Full Perspective

Dear Friends,

I know, I know.  Really – more dining room updates? ? You are probably sick of me talking about my combination dining/living area.  I have spent so much energy in that space but felt that I still needed a full shot for you.  I finally got a couple of “okay” pictures but it is tough to get the whole thing in one frame.



Honestly, I prefer the angled photos of this space but a wide straight-on shot (below) is necessary to understand how everything is arranged from a space perspective.  Unfortunately, from the front angle you can’t see that the piano is actually tucked into that corner (above).


Now, I’m not finished in here.  I do want to do curtains and I might use the panels from my old family room.  I don’t plan on covering the windows because they have a lot of “wow” factor.   I’m considering a single panel per window.  I don’t want to overwhelm the room and I’d like to keep things light and airy.


An upholstered bench would be nice for the piano.  That would definitely be on the someday list unless I run across something.  The existing bench is beautiful in that quality, heirloom way but it is rather beat-up.   I would store it regardless since it is a part of the piano.   Who knows if I’ll ever even do that?

FYI, this post was brought to you today by the letter B.  “B” is for banquette.  I’ve already started browsing.  You know Christmas isn’t that far away…
