~~ Dining Rooms
Very dark. Not sure I'd want to eat dinner in this room, it doesn't seem inviting. Notice the grasscloth on the walls, dark flooring and they lowered the window shades. The floor bothers me. Looks like wall to wall carpet. A nice glossy hardwood would be much better. The white trim bothers me, too stark. With everything so dark I would have made the trim a putty color. Now I do like the table and chairs very elegant.
White, white, white! But there is some very nice contrast with the dark table, chandelier and curtain rod as well as the small console table against the very pretty wainscoting. Not big on the chairs, a bit too modern. Love the sisal rug and ceiling.
This is from Ralph Lauren. I find no fault with this dining space. It's luxurious, timeless and just plain beautiful. Adore the chairs and the rug. Love the use of the sheer curtains, throws used as table cloth (or so it seems), over the gorgeous chair and the green candles.
