Dining drama ...

Dining takes on greater meaning as the holidays approach, and breaking bread with family and friends is one of life's great joys.  Of course, it's a lot less stressful when there are plenty of seats at the table.

I've clipped a few of my favorite dining room photos to share. I'm thinking any one of these rooms would serve as a great inspiration for hosting a dinner party any time of year. But, my favorite would have to be the stunning, decidedly Spanish-influenced dining room (above) designed by Hillary Thomas. Those chandeliers are amazing!

Ooh, la la. This Paris mas is all about casual chic. There is certainly a sense of grandeur and patina of age here, yet it remains so welcoming and comfortable. Image via Inspired Design Daily.

The Berman House dining room reflects a fresh take on traditional thanks to the keen asthetics of designers Adam Hunter and Spencer Barnes of LA-based Hunter Barnes.

Designer Todd Moore created the two distinctly different spaces above, both warm and inviting spots to dine in style.

The plum-infused charcoal walls, crystal chandelier, silk upholstery and rococo accessories create a dramatic statement (left) in this photo from Inside Living.

I know I've mentioned my banquette love in past posts, and this photo confirms my admiration. Elle Decor published this vignette, and I'm loving the mis-matched chairs, two limed-oak tables and strong graphic stripes on the Romo linen banquette seating. The home's owner and designer Philip Gorrivan displays his art collection spanning the 17th through 19th century, creating fabulous gallery walls.
