Peaches & Maple: The dining room

The dining room

Our dining room is really teensy, more of a nook than a room if we're being perfectly honest. It sits in between the kitchen and the hallway and it's the room you see first as you walk in the front door. Strangely enough this is the room that has received the most furniture removal so far in my mission to declutter and simplify. I had something on every wall in here and you could barely walk through! Enough was enough, it had to be pared back to the essentials - table, chairs, crockery cabinet and ladder : P
I remember thinking how bare it looked when we first saw the house, when it looked like this....
....but I think the previous owners may have been on to something by not cramming too much furniture into the space. 
Making mistakes is all part of the learning experience though, luckily for me because I tend to make a lot ;))
Feel free to let me know what you think :)
