Rustic Glamour/part deux


There is something so charming about a rustic dining room, don't you think? They key is to create the right balance of elements...some designs border on the more modern side and others somewhat traditional, either way the right touch can lead to a pleasing and cozy environment...

(Amanda Peet's Home via Domino, Dec./Jan. '08)

One of my favorite homes as of late, this small dining room is packed with charm...

Very elegant, yet the architecture and small decor touches (like the way the tables drapes) offers a country rustic feel...

Love this combo of the dining table and chandelier...

A modern twist, this design with the washed wood and deep red tones feels so romantic...

Probably just a typical day of dining in France I suppose, must be nice...

(via Western Interiors, Oct./Nov. '07)

A bit more rustic then I tend to like, but still I love the touch of lighting...
