A table for (more than) two

It’s natural to want what you don’t have, right? Well, in the case of my flat, my biggest want is a proper dining table. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my (pretty realistic) pretend Tulip table and DSW chairs (a bargain from here) very much…

…but it’s a pretty tight fit when friends come for dinner and there’s no way I can squeeze a bigger table into my already-a-bit-too-multifunctional-kitchen-come-living-come-dining room. It was inspired by this photo from my decorating bible, At Home with White:

Beautiful, but still compact. So, I’ve been spending a lot of time drooling over beautiful big dining rooms and collecting them together over on Pinterest. Here are some of my favourites but do hop over to this board if you fancy seeing even more.

I hadn’t noticed before, but while my ideal small table is unfussy and crisp to avoid over-complicating my limited space, all of my favourite big tables are about as chunky and rustic as you can get! I wonder if I really would swap my style so dramatically if I had more room?

    Aw, thanks. Believe me, the odd Photoshop effect I applied to the picture makes it look a lot better here than it does in real life. Tune in again on Friday for a sneaky peak of my soon-to-be feature wall!

    I love the colour on the wall – pale grey is one of my absolute favourites, right after white :)
    Can’t wait to see more from your home. I’m guessing you’re not renting then. Nothing like a bit of magnolia on the wall to kill inspiration…

    Hello Would you mind sharing where you got your Tulip table from as I am trying to source a smaller one like this. Thanks, Helen :)
