Our formal dining room has an exquisite rosewood table and matching chairs. The table has three expansion leaves so it can be expanded for large family gatherings. My wife loves to decorate the table with plates, napkins, candles and flowers. We have formal diners for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and birthdays.
When we were in Venice, Italy, my wife bought a beautiful
Murano crystal glass chandelier.
It is clear crystal and has 5 lamps, 10 leaves and 5 flowers. I installed this above the dining table. It is very lovely.
The sliding glass door did not blend in with the other furniture, so we replaced it with new
that have venetian blinds between the double pane glass windows. This gave an elegant look to it. These doors open out unto our patio next to the Koi pond.
We had replaced the carpet in the dining area and great room the year before with a plush gray carpet.
