OK, I'm taking alek's What's Your Style Challenge - the challenge is to find a photo that sums up your style. Although it's been very very difficult to find just one. I feel a little as though maybe I need one photo for every room, so here is what I would choose for the dining room category, if there were one.
Reasoning: white & black, glossy, texture, big windows, high ceilings, modern but with character, pendant lamp, bench, mismatched chairs
