Designing the Perfect Dining Area
As we usher in the second decade of the 2000s, the dining area has evolved along with other areas of your home. Traditionally a dining room is a formal place to enjoy large holiday feasts, entertain important guests and gather extended family. When not in use, it would sit empty, looking beautiful but slightly forlorn. Just waiting for the next event to liven up its walls.
