“If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.” ~ W. Clement Stone
At Thanksgiving, sharing often happens at the dinner table. To get you in the sharing spirit, we collected six decadent dining rooms from Coldwell Banker Previews International® that inspire us to eat, drink and give in the spirit of one of America’s greatest holiday traditions.
21 Midwood Drive
Greenwich, CT 06831
The exquisitely proportioned dining room of this 2-acre Greenwich compound is pure perfection. Flanked by French doors and a swinging door leading to the kitchen, it’s a clean and classic space that simply calls out for elegant holiday meals with the family.
490 W Paces Ferry Road NW
Atlanta, GA 30305
A meal fit for a king or queen! The owner of this Atlanta manse will surely be giving guests the royal treatment for Thanksgiving in this regal dining room, thanks to a 14-karat gold leaf ceiling applied by hand, crystal chandelier and custom designed dining room table and chairs by Phyllis Morris of Los Angeles.
1658 Crespi Ln
Pebble Beach, CA 93953
Thanksgiving will take on a whole new meaning in this Pebble Beach, Juan Pablo Molyneux-designed dining room. You may not feel the presence of the pilgrims per se—but you will feel the history of California with its walls sheathed in hand-crafted blue-and-white tile from France and one-of-a-kind mural of San Francisco Bay, the hills and the Spanish mission. It’s a slice of the other Americana.
7420 Inner Circle Drive
Bloomfield Twp, MI 48301
Breathtaking vistas carry through to the expansive dining room of this award-winning Detroit-close residence, thanks to a large window bay, 18-foot high barrel ceiling with cove lighting and custom plaster moldings. Matching bronze chandeliers converted from gas and produced around 1850 provide the crowning jewel—and conversation piece—for many Thanksgivings to come.
1711 E Valley Rd
Montecito, CA 93108
In Southern California, the weather can be a pleasant 70 degrees in November. So some folks prefer to take their holiday meals on their outdoor dining terrace. This European country home on 1.6 park-like acres in Montecito offers just that sort of outdoor space with a fireplace, pizza oven, covered bocce court, organic vegetable garden, meandering pathways, creek, ponds and mountain views. It will be a true California Thanksgiving.
Marnes La Coquette 92430, France
Mais oui—the French do not celebrate Thanksgiving. That said, we simply could not exclude this whimsy-chic dining room in a private seven-bedroom mansion just west of Paris. From the wallpapered walls and lush drapery to the ornate fireplace and bejeweled chandelier, there’s a romance that calls out for family and wine and perhaps, just perhaps, un petit oiseau on the table.
