Great collection.

I decided to share my past dining room that I loved but rarely used. However it was a getaway area for me when I wanted to get in touch with my feminine side. I admit I miss it but it would sit and gather dust if I still had it. We used the informal breakfast room more often also below that had a view out the windows for miles from the top of our mini mountain. We just have a more casual room now.

I have a formal dining room and a large eat-in kitchen area. I love to use my formal dining room and my husband and I eat in there, at least once a week, as just the two of us particularly in the winter. If we have people for dinner I mostly eat in there also and people seem to enjoy that I've taken the time to make it special for them. The pets join us as well. I don't need such a formal space but do like a separate space with no dirty dishes to look at around the sink. Whatever you like is fine I just wish people would remember to teach their kids basic table manners without anything needing to be too formal. Enjoy being together where ever!

I quite liked all the photos but loved the atrium kitchen in London.
