Cozy Elegance For An Autumn Day

In this softly welcoming dining room you could start the day with your hot black coffee and the morning newspaper, segue into a writing project surrounded by a laptop and stacks of books; then, as crackling leaves swirled outside the window, clear the table for a cozy autumn meal -- maybe a thick homemade minestrone accompanied by crisp baguettes smeared with good olive oil and an earthy red wine.  That would be a very good day indeed.
