Isn't this dining room just pure simplicity itself?
I know it's big and a bit cavernous like the bedrooms in my previous post... but it has SO much more personality even though it's plain.... don't you think?
So soothing and rustically warm.
I can imagine very happy, free and exuberant times around a table like this.
I don't drink much... but this looks like a room for lots of lovely wine to me.
Plenty of room to dance too!
I'd still have to add quite a few soft, fabric, artistic and textural touches for it to work as part of a home for me though. Perhaps some nice greenery in pots somewhere too.
But, for those who adore it super simple... the focus on the rough walls and the heroic wood of the floors, chairs, and table top would be a real love affair.
And, as always, as a part of this series.....
Ask yourself: 'Do I savour the ritual of eating with my family/friends whenever I can?'
Which leads to: 'When, or how, can I include this precious time together more?'
Because: There's something so primitively delightful and bonding about the 'breaking of bread' (so to speak) with our loved ones. It's a ritual and a tradition that's been crowded out and lost amongst television, technology, and texting! It's time to 'get together' and connect the old fashioned way again.
