I'm loving this dining room/living room combo by designer John Day in Cambridge, Massachusetts, featured by Elle Decor. The hardwoods in my home are dark like those, and I have a tendency to prefer neutral colors. Check out that ceiling!!
I'm also inspired by the fact that there are few area rugs. I seem to have a hard time finding rugs I like, and feel that if I don't use them my home will feel cold instead of cozy. I don't get 'cold' from this picture at all. Beautiful!!
