The dining room is going to be the first spot that you see when you enter our house. And trust me, you’re going to see it. The windows were installed yesterday. They are quite beautiful, in my opinion, and way bigger than I’d thought. That’s a good problem to have, but we’re definitely going to need some blinds.
In any event, I’m particularly excited about picking out pieces for the dining room. There are so many possible looks. I love mixing and matching types of woods and styles. I’m not yet sure what size table we’ll be able to fit in this room, but here are some shots to get things going.
