Re: Christmas Country Dining

The entire room is just kind of "meh" to me.  While the Christmas decorations are nice, I'm not a "country" gal so the furniture, etc. just does not do a thing for me.

Re: Christmas Country Dining

I like the way it's decorated.  Understated.  A bit too understated for me.  Those straight back chairs would not work in real life for my home.

I like the room....but I would get a different rug and replace the white chairs, I just cant imagine what they'd look like after some regular dining....not practical

Re: Christmas Country Dining

Those wooden side chairs are uncomfortable, but I have a couple similar that I sit in various nooks in my home, and place something seasonal on them throughout the year. 

 

I love the look of them, and they fill small spaces with charm and a seasonal nod.

Lovely room without being overdone.  I would think window shades on that side window might be a good investment.  Sometimes window light is highly uncomfortable in several ways.

Love it! I'll take everything except the rug. I would replace that with a simple oriental pattern, maybe because my light oak dining room furniture sits on a beautiful oriental rug my mom treasured!  Smiley Happy

What do you think of this dining space? 

 

I think it looks nice, even if it’s a bit too symmetrical. It gives me a bit of a country Christmas feeling. I like the greenery with red bows on the light fixtures and mirrors. I also like the decorative white ceramic pieces on the cabinets beneath the mirrors.

 

I would remove the little items on the table. The runner & centerpiece are fine. I don’t think the pillow and throw on the chairs are necessary. The wooden chairs probably aren’t super comfortable. I don’t like the animal rug at all.

Re: Christmas Country Dining

So the owners have comfy chairs and the guests have to sit on that heavy weave with uncomfortable backs!   The centerpiece is a little too high, something low with flowers would be nice in a Christmas theme.
