Get the Look #3 - Dining Area

Hello Readers,  

Today's "Get the Look" considers a space that is more tactile and rustic than the previous 2 rooms. The dining room / area in the house should be user friendly.  

It is a space for the family to reconcile around a single table and exercise values of love and sharing.  Food prepared by a loving mother should be presented against a backdrop worthy of the effort and care gone into the preparation of a meal.  Dining Areas should reflect the character and habits of the family that fill its seats.

 The dining room above is simple and rustic.  It is placed within a kitchen environment, making it an authentic and informal space.

- Use of timber and steel as well as the emotive use of candles and flowers lend to an atmospheric space that is inviting and accessible.
- A large "country style" wooden table and bench incite images of wholesome food, served straight out of the pot.
- Bench seating is conducive to family values of sharing.
- Combinations of armchairs, stools and benches provide multiple seating types and add variety to the space.
- A warm rug complements the colour palette and takes the kitchen from clinical to rustic.
