diWhite Dining

One thing I have always had on my wish list was a cozy space to dine in. A place where kids can draw happily on the table and not be too concerned about getting colour on the table top. Somewhere to let out the days frustrations and joys with each other over a hearty cooked meal.
The other thing was a BIG fireplace mantle...I did get to cross off that wish.
The one above is wonderful and I could imagine our old cast iron beauty crackling away in there.
Another wish was beadboard walls like this room. I have kind of ticked this off, our ceilings are beadboard, but to have them everywhere would be heaven. They seem to take white so naturally.

from my usb file- unknown
Another would be to have loads of light loads of vintage and loads of love.
I have the last part ticked =0)

  1. Lovely inspiration! Lovely! Have a great day! ~lulu

  2. Ness great photos. Love the first one.

  3. May your wish come through!!!!

  4. Gorgeous dining areas! I think our dining room wish list is very similar!

  5. Hi Ness,

    I think my favourite image is number 2. I love the dark and light and one of my big wishes is to have a mantle in every room of a house. I have had people look at me like I am nuts when this wish is said!!! I couldn't agree with you more about beadboard. I would have it everywhere too, and yes, it wears white so so well.
    Have a great day tomorrow.
    Take care

  6. Dear Ness,

    I think also, it's possible to mix the wishes of the family with the own.

    Kids need a place where they can be active without fear. And a dining table in the kitchen is also of great importance (for me). If possible, I combine the two areas. ;)



  7. Hi Ness! Such beautiful inspiration!!! I hope you are having a lovely week!

    Hugs ~
