"pare down to the essence, but don't remove the poetry." ~leonard koren
i'm not sure there is poetry in this space, but i love the october light in here... so i thought i'd give you a peek at our simple dining room. :)
we moved into this house after spending a couple years overseas. some boxes came with us, but no furniture. i feel blessed to have been able to find everything here either on craigslist or by thrifting. it is definitely not what our suburban friends and neighbors are used to, but we love it.
the poster was found on etsy, the basket is from baskets from africa, and the dream catcher was made by me.
this space isn't huge, but it has plenty of room for the four of us. the table with an extra leaf was an exciting find as it can expand to accommodate friends. chairs are simply brought in from other rooms for additional seating.
this is the sunniest place in our house, so the plants thrive here. there's usually a plate or two of ripening tomatoes and peppers in front of those doors as well.
all of the green makes me happy!
not much else to say! just what we need and love here…nothing extra. thanks for visiting! :)
