Dining Room Before

November 15, 2009

Check out the dining room now.

As you enter the house through the doorway from the carport, the dining room is to your right, along the front of the house.

This is one of the places where I love the use of the clerestory windows in our house. In the dining room, they make it possible to sit at the dining room table with the blinds open at dusk without feeling like you’re on stage. They also frame the view of the neighborhood to emphasize trees and sky, rather than pavement and cars.

Right now, the peninsula between kitchen and dining room features a framed poster with a saying by Hilaire Belloc, printed at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.

This is the view from the wall next to the door from the carport, across the dining room table, and into the living room.

The dining room table is a gate-leg design by Thomas O’Brien Vintage Modern for Target (no longer available). The chairs are IKEA Tobias in clear/chrome plated.
