End Of Week Dining Spaces: Which Is Your Favorite?

The week began with table-setting images to generate interesting ideas for the upcoming holidays. Mid-week I revealed a before and after bench that will be used in a client's dining room.  Since dining in style is clearly the focus this week, we might as well finish it with some inspiring dining room areas. Take a look at eight of my very favorites.  Each space is quite different, but they all share certain elements that I would love to incorporate into our next home's dining room.
