On the subject of dining, I have had conversations with a couple of friends this week about dining tables. What style to choose? Where to buy? I thought I would do a quick post as a result. As with most things, prices vary considerably with such significant items of furniture. If your budget is a little more limited I do think good old Ikea has a selection of tables to suit most styles. Made.com are also very good for modern and vintage. M&S, John Lewis etc. are the mid range and then there are the others! If you haven't the budget, the expensive sites are worth visiting for ideas as you can normally re create the look for a lot less...
Below are a selection of tables and schemes, modern and traditional and a mix. (Made.com, Ikea, M&S, Habitat and Oka) I quite like the mix of modern and traditional...a wooden table with modern chairs for example.
A great site to log on to if you are considering re decorating or re-styling a room is www.housetohome.co.uk. This is a brilliant website where you can sit and browse 100's of pictures of different room ideas and you can even create your own moodboards! I thoroughly recommend taking a look!
