I promised that I would show you the spaces that I am working on transforming at the moment in our home. First one being our dining area/ eat in kitchen space.
At the moment it looks like this...not very interesting or inviting..but lots of potential dont you think?
I absolute LOVE the abundance of natural light that pours into this space and of course the views !
This is one of my favourite rooms in the home and one that I would really like to transform into a space that is cosy, inviting...not to precious looking..as I would still like for it to be a space that is relaxing and able to be enjoyed any time of the day..not just for fancy dinners.
This dining setting I love...especially because it was made by Mr White when he lived on Lord Howe Island ..table and bench seats made from Norfolk pine..which you just cant get anymore.
Only issue is that after a few hours sitting...its not the most comfortable seating and you end up with a sore back , so I am thinking of replacing the bench seats with dining chairs...perhaps with something like the Eames Eiffel Chairs..although Mr White is not so keen : /
As for what I would do with the bench seats...already have one of them in mind for a coffee table in our living space..it looks perfect there, the other..perhaps a bench to plonk your shopping bags etc at the entrance of the home?
There are two styles that I could go with...the Swedish / rustic/ industrial look..

or more country looking, intimate and cosy using a settee ( a look I still adore)..which I posted about on my blog two years ago here
As you can see..two totally different looks and the options really are endless as to which way I could go....what do you think? Any suggestions please do share...would love to hear them ; )
