best of pinterest - living and dining rooms

So going through my living room and dining room Pinterest boards made me realize that there is no way I could choose just one single style for either room. They are just too full of possibilities.

For the dining room we've got to have a big round table and super killer chairs. Duh.

I like the idea of books in the dining room. More of a library where they allow food, sort of.

OK, this one isn't a round table, but its good.

The living room, like the rest of the house will have tall ceilings, lots of beautiful moldings and big huge windows.

And many french doors out to the huge porch.

CoCo is really good at cleaning windows.

And he makes a mean cocktail.

I don't think I even scratched the surface really. There is no way I could narrow it down. That's it, I'm just going to have to have several living rooms and dining rooms.

What about you? Do you have a style you dream about but don't have in your own home? Any feature you would add to a space if the sky was the limit? Want CoCo to make you a G&T for the afternoon?


  1. oh to have that trunk bar cart!!!!\

  2. How much do you want that chandy in the first picture? I am loving these pics.

  3. the style I dream about? Impossibly high ceilings and molding galore... European type architecture that you just cant get here!!! great pics!

  4. I have this problem too. I could never decide on anything if I had no budget. I would need a house for every Pinterest picture.
    Is Coco you imaginary manservant? I have an imaginary housemaid. She is a dumpy, middle aged lady that gets kinda testy about messes. Oh wait that's me.

  5. I would like to live in them all alternatively! And yes, please ... if Coco can stop by that would be terrific! xo

  6. I am very familiar with this dilemma! I suffer from the same thing!
    Oh just in case MC reads my comments, he is my CoCo!!

  7. CoCo…..I knew he'd make his way into this post! :)
    I love that last photo the best - the steamer trunk as a bar??? So cool! I NEED that for my living room!

  8. I would love to have multiple french doors that open up to a stone or brick floored patio that is protected by dappled sunlight. And and inside I want a bunch of windows and abundant natural light. For starters.

  9. I'm all about the G&Ts! I love a dark, moody space. In the day to day I need something bright for the sake of keeping me going with kids, but if we had a separate dining space, or (if we're really dreaming) a library...I'd be all over this! Lovely images!

  10. These pics are all gorgeous! I'm convinced I have decorating schizophrenia... There is just too much goodness out there, how does one narrow it down???

  11. I keep thinking how much I would love a big huge round table in my dining room. Alas, the dimensions just wouldn't allow for it. But your pics are still making me dream... When can I move in? My window cleaning ain't so great and my cocktails aren't all that but I will get you drunk - and that counts for something, right? xxx

  12. They are all very pretty. Multiple living and dining rooms sound really nice until I think about having to clean all of them. I'd need a Coco

  13. Love your rooms. Please tell Coco I'd love a squeeze of lime ;)

  14. I just LOVED this post! It's fun to pull your fave photos from Pinterest!~ Love the pink living room... but my boy would never allow it! ha
