Is it noon yet? I'm waiting patiently for the game to start, laundry to finish, and new inspiration to come to me for the house.  I really don't know what happened to me this weekend.  I've been cooking, baking, waking up super early, AND I walked 3 miles this morning at 7 AM. Yeah, you hurrd me.  I don't even know who I am anymore.

On another note, MY FIANCE GETS BACK FROM HIS FISHING TRIP  IN EXACTLY 7 HOURS!!!!!! Can you tell I'm just a leeeeetle excited.

I think I shall do a post on the dining room today.  The layout of it is going to look something like this (excuse the novice Paint skills):

This is completely just a draft, and I'm only using that to give me an idea of how the color can flow niceeeely and perfectly.  The bar is to the left which I will revisit later.  Brett and I want an awesome distressed looking wooden table to be the main focal point.  Kinda like these..maybe?

It could be round-ish (via Jayson Home)

Or it could be square (via Pottery Barn)
It's just gosta be wood peoples.  I saw a lovely one at Z-Gallerie this weekend and despite all my Googling ability I am unable to find a pic for the life of me.  But it was a beauty.  Actually the more I look at the Pottery Barn one, the less I am in love....

I'm torn about the chairs and the wall color.  The kitchen will be a pewter gray on the walls with white/gray/silver accents around it.  Does the dining room HAVE to have color then?  Because I am reaaaaaally loving the look/texture/feel of some black velvet dining chairs.  Yes-sir-eeeeeeeee. Like so:

  As I'm browsing the w-w-w, I FOUND SOMETHING LOVELY:

She is stunning.  Definitely 938420394 times better than the PB one. Thank you, Restoration Hardware.  You never fail me. (Shoutout to KG and her dream couch)
OK I am back on track now, ready to focus.  So now we be lookin like this:

Again, I apologize for the paint skillz.  As the two side chairs, I am absolutely-head-over-heels for these beauties:

I DIEEEEEEEEEEE.  They really are so purty (and I wish they were cheaper).  Do not fear though-- if you want the most bang for your buck, you can find a similar one at Z Gallerie for $159.99.  Yesssssssssssss.

This is where I'm bothered.  So far in the dining room there is a wooden table, four black velvet chairs, and two clear "ghost" chairs.  I love love love love the different textures with the wood, velvet, and lucite.  I just don't know if I can part.  But then part of me is like SCRATCH IT ALL let's have some COLOR:

And some wallpaper!!
And striped chairs!!
And let's get reallllll crazy with this!!

(Just kidding babe!!!!)

But alas, I think my heart lies with simplicity.  Maybe mix up the black velvet with some blue or sumfin.  But doesn't this look just awesome?

Imagine instead of monkey, there was a fabulous William Wegman piece:

There's our color!!!!!!! :)

Happy Sunday peeps and GO TEXANS.
