Beautiful books and carpet

The highlight of the past week has been finally getting new carpet in our dining room and hall.

Unfortunately, not having had a dining room before, and only having a small table (the kitchen table from my childhood) we are somewhat lacking in things to put in the dining room.

Well, that's not strictly true. As you can see...

(Apologies for the dreadful light in the picture...)

My non Virago fiction was currently residing upstairs in the third bedroom, but I didn't really like having the books in there. The room is somewhat grotty (and will be our next redecoration project, hopefully over the Christmas break), and as it's the smallest bedroom it was absolutely crammed solid. The plan is to move them back once it's decorated, but y'know, I quite like them there... (Poor Mr W's books are still in the garage)


  1. You and the books look fab! No need for a dining room table.

  2. Agreed: dining-room furniture over-rated. You can never have enough bookshelves. Enjoy your new arrangements!

  3. Our dining room was homework-central for The Heiress. Books and magazines get piled on the table and our computer desk is in the corner. We never use that space for eating...unless we're on the computer and having lunch at the same time.

    Congratulations on the new carpet, bet it's nice and squishy!

  4. Dining room? Way over-rated. Ours has 2 pianos and a keyboard...four children have a way of deleting the need for a formal dining room. :) Looks great!

  5. You still have space for more books *envy* :)
