Home Update: Dining Room

The dining room is the first room that we finished and it's still one of my favorites for its simplicity.  There isn't anything revolutionary in the design here, but everything works together so well, between the wall color and the different shades of wood, that it feels very complete to me.

The chandelier is the very first thing I bought for the new house and I'm still so very in love with it.  We added vintage style bulbs to it so even when it is off, it looks amazing.  We ended up tying the cord to each bulb up a bit so that it didn't shine right in your face as you're sitting at the table.

We also have a leaf that can make this into a much larger table but since it's usually just the three of us around the table, we leave it out most of the year.
