No matter the size of your home, I think it’s really important to create a casual, comfortable, welcoming space in which to sit down and enjoy a meal. If you’re lucky enough to live in a larger space, this could be where you eat your morning cereal while poring over the latest news or your favorite home decor site (hint hint). If you’re in a smaller space, it’s your breakfast nook in the morning and your intimate dining room—with the help of some candles—at night. Here are high and low budget versions of a fresh, eclectic look for your casual dining space.
