Please tell me what you would do different in this dining room. At this time, I can't change the carpet or wood window blinds...too much $$. But what would you do as far as tables, chairs, paint color, curtains or valances, small furniture, etc. If you look at my idea book under dining rooms you can see the styles I like. It tends to be cozy, farmhouse styles with a Parisian twist. This opens up to our kitchen which has light oak cabinets and gray granite counter tops. the space is 9 ft by 11.5 feet. and my current table is 60 inches long. Many thanks!
