the accidental room







i'm pretty obsessed with dining rooms right now. they seem to be the room you can do anything with. there is space to be exuberant and gutsy and frivolous. there is room for texture and contrast and humor. i love a dining room that is more haphazard than formal, more accidental than deliberate. I love a dining room that functions as many rooms... a saloon, a gallery, a parlor, or my favorite— a library... yes, i would love a dining room/library... i think that would be perfect...all those books against the walls and big tufted armchairs against the windows to sit and read for hours in...

Sacrilege to suggest that books and a dining table can occupy the same room. The photo offends me. Tempting, though... the idea that you could take your plate off the table, sit with your back to the book case, and wantonly flip through books as you eat.
