Dining Room for Sherry
Additional separation between living room and dining room, but still opens the room with clear divider rather than extended wall.
I like the stone wall to add texture, earthy tones and depth into standard cookie-cutter dining room.
Clean chandelier and light walls for a narrow space
Textured walls to hide patch and re-patched walls.
Use of wall for additional storage and highlight for art/kids projects
Offset wall with benches for kids improves walkway flow from kitchen to living room (lets bumps, bruises & table dings)
Open up kitchen storage by having a neat place to store plates, bowls and glasses.
monochromatic wall molding & chair rails to add class to boring walls.
Warmth - even though you don't have this bay window
Large frame with stretched fabric for cheap, large art (until you find art you actually like).
Focal/funky print window treatments?
Is this possible in your kitchen?
Large Frame & scrapbook-style Family photos/Art prints
Love the idea of opening to back yard or patio
I like the elements & color contrast of the chairs. Maybe a little more balance in thicker legs for the kiddies.
Faux fireplace-brick Mantle?
Minimal changes required
Print covered end-chairs
Creating a bench under the window - with storage and possibly as additional seating for kids birthdays/etc.
Clean feeling of Wall Colors & Blue curtains (that are shades lighter of your living room blue)
Cheap Wall Art - Frame, Monogram Letter, Paint.
Light blue walls with white for chair rail, below & molding (shade of blue lighter than living room or continuation of living room blue). Chairs with some white in them (wipe-able)
The fireplace decor and lamps would be easy to transition for a traditional living room
