My last blog post was on “fun and fabulous place settings” that create an “experience” rather than just a meal. Well, that holds true with the dining room itself, too. When it comes to feasting there’s nothing more inviting than a cozy, charming ambiance in the dining area. I think we all agree that dining is much more pleasant, much more enjoyable…..and becomes more of an experience in a “super cool” space!
A cool dining space creates the proper “mood” or vibe and sets the pace for the evening. It should make our guests feel warm and welcome, ready for a nice, long evening of good food, good conversation and good fun. This casual space has a warm ambiance with its cobblestone floors, stone wall, chunky wood table, etc. Doesn’t the thought of a nice dinner here seem appealing?
Or for the more formal – how about this? Sort of a grandiose, opulent entrance and overall ambiance. But, warm, intriguing and inviting just the same. (I’d like a dining room like this and a kitchen like the one above!)
You can see this amazing space sets a different tone….
As does this…..
Or even this. Unusual, but fun! Maybe not so comfy for us “older folks”! I’m afraid my knees might get stuck permanently and I might never get back up! But, it’s a cool look for the young and flexible just the same.
And, for another kitchen/dining space how fun is this? What a happy place to sit with a glass of wine, friends, family and great food.
Now that’s an experience!
