It's officially that time of year where I begin to dream of heavenly dining rooms to host cozy dinner parties....
Something like this room by Joe Nahem, perhaps? I love that it's deceptively simplistic: a table, some chairs, drapes - nothing that appears too complicated - and yet the detail of each layer is perfectly thought out. The scale of the wallpaper pattern and how it compliments the tile in the fireplace. The way the woods ground the space even without a rug (which would take away from the gorgeous table base anyway), and the combination of that soft olive grey with peachy drapes. And plants, of course! The most simple of decor, but what a statement they make here bringing life to this quiet little space.

A bit traditional? Yes. But welcoming in the way your stylish grandmother would be. Which makes me love it even more!
