Dining in

Dining area with rosewood dining table | Design Hunter

I don't think I've ever shared images of our dining space here on Design Hunter before, so after reshuffling the shelves last week and repotting some of my rather neglected houseplants in an attempt to coax them into the growing season, I got my camera out and took a few pictures.

The ground floor of our home is an open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Because this one room has to accommodate lots of different activities - from cooking, to eating and watching TV - we've tried to define the space by creating different zones.
