Formal Dining

In Australia, Formal dining lost its popularity to a more open plan area where the more formal table was not in its own separate room but more part of the main social area, This was largely due to the fact that so many new homes were being built, land size reducing and space was more used for Theatre rooms, more bedrooms where children no longer share there rooms etc..I also have my formal dining in my main area because I simply did not have the room but I have always loved a more casual lifestyle. But there is something very special and intimate about a formal dining room I would love to build one in to my next home but one wall would have to be full of glass french doors so it wouldn't have a closed in feel, definitely a chandelier and how simple full length curtains which I love, this room decorated by Kimberley Seldon is very elegant and stylish.
