Home Sweet Home | Dining Room Inspo

Mike and I are officially house hunting! We are hoping to find our perfect home by August of 2013. It's a very exciting time, but I don't want to rush it. I'm a very antsy person when I'm excited about something so to curb my desire to put an offer on the very first house we like, I'm focusing my attention on how I would/might decorate! Mike and I are very equal when it comes to decision making, and on this particular room we don't agree. But I still thought it would be fun to show off what I had envisioned in my head, even if it's not how we end up going.



I am a huge fan of dining room benches and miss-matched chairs. I have been for a while. But the upholstered/leather look, that is definitely a new thing for me. I've never been a fan of upholstered dining room chairs, but lately, my styles have been changing.

I think this look is very contemporary, yet still very classic. We hope to host Christmas and other holidays in the future so we would need to pick a table that can easily fit up to 10-12 people. Even that wouldn't hold our families!

What is your ideal dining room? Or how do you have yours styled if you're lucky enough to already have your dream dining room? I'd love to hear!

note: while those chairs are pretty rad, there's no way I'd spend $300 each on chairs :) But, a girl can dream, right?
