Dining Rooms

WELCOME TO THE TABLE

Dear Debbie,
We have graduated from our first tiny apartment to a house that has a dining room. What should we look for in a table? Is this what you would call a splurge item? Thanks for all your help.
Marianne

Dear Marianne,

TABLE CONVERSATION

Whenever I move to a new home, it doesn’t feel like mine until I have had my family and friends sitting around the dining room table, talking, laughing, eating and toasting the new space. The dining table is at the heart of life’s celebrations, large and small. All topics are acceptable from serious to silly, and every age group is included. When my boys were growing up, no matter how busy all our daily schedules were, dinner together was a must. Here is where we mark the passage of time, get to know new acquaintances and reconnect to dear friends.

Refresh your garden this spring with new furniture additions

The change of seasons often gives us the impetus to switch up our rooms in order to capitalize on what’s new and fresh. The same holds true for gardens and outdoor rooms. There are plenty of ideas to make the most of your space, and even a small adjustment to the arrangement of furniture or addition to the landscape will bring exciting rewards.

Reclaimed furniture can bring new life to a room: Debbie Travis

The coming months are filled with special occasions that call for celebrations large and small. If you love to entertain, this is your time to shine.

Dear Debbie,

HOW TO DOWNSIZE BUT STILL DO THE THINGS YOU LOVE

Dear Debbie,

SHOW YOUR WHIMSICAL SIDE WITH HOLIDAY TABLE DECOR

Setting the table for holiday parties is a great occasion to allow your whimsical side to escape. Along with the fabulous food treats, the table should offer good cheer and panache. Decide on an overall theme; would you like to have a simple, spare look or a happy cluster of patterns and accessories?

ARTIFACTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD CAN ACCENT HOME DECOR

If you love to travel, as I do, you are sure to come across items of special beauty and interest that you’d love to take home. Fabulous finds that will fit into luggage present no problem. A few yards of Moroccan textiles, or a collection of beaded napkin rings are easily transported.

Try some new, bold solutions for big walls

  Have you got a tall wall challenge? If you live in a loft, a home with a two-story entrance or cathedral ceilings, you are looking at a large space, which can be daunting to fill.
