Do you use yours much? One of the reasons we did a huge farmhouse table (with 5 leaves) in our kitchen is that people don’t seem to use the formal dining room these days? Why is this? I love eating in ours….last time we had friends over and had the room set up for the adults we got comments about “oh, so formal.” Why is this? I almost felt funny that we were eating in there….they were newish friends and I almost felt weired we had planned to eat in there.
And no offense if you do this, but I don’t understand using a dining room or formal living room as a playroom for the kids. I am always taken aback when I walk into a home and am greeted by slides and tricycles and a big playmat prominently occupying a prime piece of property!
Anyways, our dining room is near completion. We need art and are doing Conrad shades on the windows (since I don’t want to open and close the drapes daily and we like our privacy since our lots are small)…then we are done. I’ll share the work of an artist I’ve been thinking of for the space later. In the meantime, tell me you wouldn’t be happy to take all of your meals in this dining room?
What is the point of having a space that you don’t use?
Are you with me on this?
