Real Estate Renovations

Join us for Dinner

So I am quickly coming to the realization that a well put together room will more than likely elicit a Like from me, even if it’s completely what I don’t want.

I love the above image but it’s so not right for Casa J.  Part of our issue right now is that we have a wonderful formal dining that we use as a glorified mail room.  I am so over having spaces than people can only look at but are considered “off-limits.”

We are adding a very large new island in the kitchen which will have a breakfast bar and stools.  We envision this being the main noshing area as we can sit and chat while someone is cooking or mixing libations or actually eat a full meal.

I still want to have a table and chairs available for more formal meals and holidays.  But we didn’t feel we needed to have a dining “room” to make this happen.

The room above has a lot of great elements but I can’t envision using the armchairs at the dining table.  Height would seem to be an issue, either of the table height of the seat height. But I love the idea of using a bright fabric to add a pop of color in the space. The side chairs pictured are nearly identical to our current chairs so this gives me some idea of mixing some palettes and fabrics.

The color, windows and chandeliers are sure-fire winners, not so much with the Asian pieces darted throughout.  That’s only for my home personally, I actually think it works generically…if that makes sense.
