This room has hosted many meals, holiday dinners, and parties. It's an uncluttered space (accept when my sewing machine and projects are over it). For the most part, it's a low maintenance space that is practical and beautiful. I know a lot of people think that a dining room in unnecessary if you have an eat-in kitchen, but because I love to entertain, I love having this space.
My favorite part of the room is of course the built in buffet/hutch that is original to the house. Being Canadian, I was lucky to receive Bone China for wedding gifts. I love using it. So, having it out on display makes it's easy for me to access it. I store and display my wedding china and crystal in the side cabinets and the draws offer me a tone of linen storage.
When I host parties the buffet gives me a space to set out appetizers, drinks or even dessert.

The room was a sage green for many years, but I recently painted it grey.
|On the wall opposite the Hutch is are two huge windows. They allow light to flood the room during the day.|
