Patrician dining

When I think of formal dining rooms, I conjure images of
deep colored walls, heirloom furniture and sumptuous fabrics.
A less casual place than is used everyday that seems worthy of special occasions.

I prefer the English Country House look with leather, tartan fabrics, silk drapes, and bit of equestrian chic thrown in.

My own dining room is far from recieving the style infusion I am looking for.
The walls are still white and and I'll need to start searching for new pieces.

I will need new chairs and I am a huge fan of plaid and mixed styles and fabrics.

To be honest, I'm looking to create something a little stuffy and uptight.

I'll save the whimsy for another room.
