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.

|On the wall opposite the Hutch is are two huge windows. They allow light to flood the room during the day.|
I love the archway between the living room and dining room. On the opposite wall from the archway is the Kitchen. The small black armoir in the corner of the room houses the family computer.
