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!
