Michael Partenio

I love the perfect symmetry of this dining room captured by photographer Michael Partenio. The fabric on those lovely chairs is great too, as are the bird prints and collection of mirrors. I like the idea of having a cozy bench in a dining room too!

i think i finally found my kitchen wall color. i too have a wainscotting with black and white accessories, and painted my cabinets a soft gray. This room is amazing.

This room is fabulous! My favorite color scheme is gray, white, and soft blue, so how could I not love this room? Those chairs are so unique and beautiful, and the bench is so sophisticated. I want this dining room! There's nothing I don't love about it! Great find, Erin!

Wow, it is totally symmetrical and entirely stylish. I love those chairs, too! They totally draw the eye in. This room has a breakfast nook meets elegant dining feel. Very cool!!

Wow, even the mirror is symmetrically correct. I love all the shapes they used. Heck I love everything about this picture. It's all so right.

This room is so appealing in so many ways Erin, I think it's got to be my fave. I am sure you must have already seen the HGTV 2010Dream house Kitchen, it's Turquoise, but if not, here is the link.

Good thing you pointed out the fabric on the chairs! I was so focused on those framed drawings I would have missed it!
