As the kitchen has ground to a halt (I promise a LONG post on the drama is coming!!!) I decided to turn my attentions elsewhere…to the dining area. As this space is connected to the family area and the kitchen it has to feel connected but it will also be the heart of the room – the place where we gather, socialize and eat and so getting its look and feel right is very important.
I’m massively into the clean Scandinavian aesthetic at the moment so here’s some of my favorite recent pins from the blogosphere…

I love the openness in this space and the white Eames moulded plastic chairs are exactly what I am thinking for the dining table.

I love how white and light and serene this space is but I know in reality I have two small kids and there’s no way my home would stay this pristine for long!!!

I love the eclectic nature of this room and the colors in the rug are gorgeous but again small kids and rugs under dining tables don’t mix…at least not yet!

I love the simplicity and the color palette in this final image and it clearly won me over with its use of my favorite copper pendants!!!
What’s your favorite? How would you bring warmth and functionality into a modern family dining space?
