After 10 years of the same old thing on the wall of my dining room, I have decided to change things up a bit. So, as usual, I turn to my inspiration files to see what ideas I could cull out of my favorite images.
Dining rooms are interesting places. Most seem to have one big wall with no windows, which creates a great opportunity for making a statement. Also, they are often one of the first things seen when entering a house (at least, in Atlanta homes this is the case). When looking through my picture files, I realized that the dining room images that appeal to me seem to fall into three categories. So here is #1: a mirror on the wall.
A peek into a lovely dining room in a Paris apartment (image via the Paris Apartment). A statement mirror defines the room (love those chevron floors too), and a glimpse of sconces on either side of the mirror can be seen. The chandelier seems very small for the space, but look at the height of those ceilings! I simply must have 10 foot plus ceilings in my next house.
Anne Coyle used a mirror and collected objects above a console in her dining room. I initially thought this was in her entryway, but later learned it is in her dining room.
