I'm lovin it.

And by it, I don't mean McDonalds (although I do love me some McFlurrys...m&m plz).  I'm talking bout this wallpaper:

Focus your lil eyes on the silver beauty.  From afar, I'm all like what is that weird fancy schmany pattern? Don't know if I'm on board.  But then if you look rillllll close, you'll be amazed. Promise. Pinky swear.  Seeeeee:

What? Oil rigs?! Cowboys? Horses? FOOTBALL HELMETS?! Shut the front door.  I mean what Texan wouldn't love this? Not to mention it's the perfect amount of boyish, so fiance obviously approves.  And it comes in all sorts of lovely shades.

Ooo la la.

Glow in the Dark? O'RLY?

It's just Tuesday and I'm already BURSTIN' with inspiration. Just bursting. Filled to the brim.  Like the two cups of coffeeeeeeeeeee I had this morning. Calm down, Ryann.  Ya see, our tile samples we ordered came in last Friday (sidenote: it felt like Christmas morning!!!! minus the mimosas and stockings).  And Brett & I sat down to pick out our faves and to eliminate the why-did-she-send-us-those ones.  Within the goods was this penny tile that is just so dainty, simple, and perf for what our Guest Bathroom will look like.

She will go on da floor.

The walls will be dressed in Hague Blue by Farrow and Ball.  This ain't just any ole paint peeps. It's HIGH GLOSS Hague Blue....swoon.  I gosta show y'all some pics so you can get the full effect:

And a big, big thanks to Peppermint Bliss who blogged about this wallpaper. It shall go on the ceiling of the GB:

AND......I don't think ya ready for dis jelly......IT GLOWS IN THE DARK. Yah, the lil stars glow-in-the-dark. Imma faint.

For the fab lighting, I go back to my dream wishlist.  Because let's be honest, it just fits right in PERFECTLY.

EEEEEEEEEEK.  Gives me da chills just thinkin' bout it.

I'd add some other lil knick knacks in there too, like so:

4 dolla, holla

We are now taking reservations.

Master Bedroom

My eyes hurt.  I've been cropping, dragging, copying, pasting & trying-to-get-the-dang-word-doc-to-convert-to-a-jpeg for the last two hours.  Le sigh.  After all my trials and tribulations, this is the final inspiration board my tired lil head put together:

I didn't have time to number each one and reveal my sources.  But I'm hoping it will go a little something like this......

Benjamin Moore Grey paint for the walls, yum.  The bed will have a tufted brown leather headboard and the bedding will be all black and white with a hint of grey.  Main duvet and pillows are black Leontine Linens, monogrammed, ob-vee-uss-lee.  Accent pillow in Greek key print from Etsy.  The sheets will also have a Greek key trim in white.  See what I did there?  Over the bed will hang a lovely, dainty Starburst mirror from Crate and Barrell to pop against the grey wall.  To go along with the black and white beddings, the curtains will have the same thang goin on.  For the side tables, I'm thinking black lacquer cubes with purty lil gold lamps to live on top.  Old chair reupholstered in Osborne and Little checkered fabric seen above (black, grey, brown).  OHHH maybe with a nice velvety black pillur.  Then some extra thangs in there like the brown/white cowhide bench to go at the end of the headboard.  And every master bedroom, needs a bar cart, right?

When it's all said and done, I'm hoping it will kinda, sorta, maybe look like a combo of all the rooms seen here:

Powdah Room Version 2.0

char·treuse: a pale yellow or green color resembling liquer made from brandy.

Sounds like my kinda color.  Since I did my original post on our flowery/pinkish/green powder room, I have learned that the wallpaper is discontinued. No longer in service.  Out of commission. Caput. Sayanara suckers.

So I shall start from scratch.  I'm actually happier with this room than the original.  The inspiration in theeeeeees beauty:

Sillhouettes are so-hot-right-now in the design world.  And these boys and gals are chartreuse so it's PERF.  If we went with green in the dining room + gray in the kitchen, this would make for the most wonderfullest combo of the two. Dontcha think?

Tack on some of these Anthro goodies to the door:


And get this, she is only SEVENTY-NINE bones. 79!!!!! Rill nice, rilllllll nice.

On another note, totally unrelated.....
I have my first alterations fitting manana for my dream dress.  And of course that means today I am craving THIS

(no mayo or tomatoes plz)  BUT I'm going to be good and eat this just-as-good lunch instead:

You fancy, huh.
 WILLPOWER Ryann, willpower.  Have a lovely day.

Chirp, chirp


Double ohmygawd.  Peeps, you have now met a celebrity.  A REAL LIFE CELEBRITY.  I introduce you to the Birdcage Bedroom.  By Miles Redd (we'll come back to him lata).  Featured in Domino Magazine.   Throughout all my recent adventures into the blogging world, I have come to know that this room is famous among interior designers.  But, these are my confesssioooonssss (U-S-H-E-R-R-A-Y-M-O-N-D nowtellmewhatyouwannado): It wasn't love at first sight. Yeah, I admit it.  But the more I pondered it, the more I was like I can TOTALLY redo this room ala budget friendly ways.  The more research I did, the more I got to learn about budgeting "designer" rooms.  And it made me all giddy inside, reaallll giddy.  I can so see this room as a guest room at our new casa (please babe, pwetty pwetty pleaaaaaaase).  Without further adieu.....

The wallpaper: the real thang is just not happening.  The birds are De Gourney and they are $650 per panel MINIMUM.  I mean really? Don't get me wrong, I can stare at De Gourney pieces all day, but that is just ree-deec-ulous.  So I'm gonna have to go with a much pocket-friendlier substitute:

That'll do pig, that'll do.

Now for the bed.  You can get some nice alternates as seen below:

PB Teen- $799

Personally, I can live without the whole "bird cage" feel of the bed.  It makes me wanna drape fabric all around. And build a tent.  And play hide and seek.  So LUCKY MEEEEE, my parents graced me with this beauty a couple years ago for Chreeeestmas....thanks Frank and Suzanne!!

The lovely lil' turquoise end tables could be a splurge:

Jonathan Adler- $150

Or you could go all DIY and really impress yourself:

IKEA- $10
 Spray paint some blue on thurr and make it work.

I'm in lurv with these lamps:

Robert Abbey
 AND these Leontine Linens (obviously):

But I could SO be happy with diisss, just the same:
The rug.  She is Madeleine Weinrib...and peeps, she just can't be copied.  Just can't.  So if you splurge on anything, do it here.

If this all came true, I'd just roll ovah and die.

Is it too early for a Christmas list?

But seriously.  I mean it's not even it bad that I'm already drafting my "dream" X-mas list?  That's what happens when you rummage the internets and come across something that you just HAVE TO HAVE.  Then you click on it and you're all like YESSSSSSS, I have found where you came from.  Then you scroll down and see it. Right there....they want HOW MUCH for HOW MANY COOKIES?  Psh, I can get that Ikea for half the price.  But you know you really can't.  That's when I add it to my dream list.  So folks, here it is, in all it's unattainable glory.

Isn't it all dreamy?

All this Christmas talk is really getting me into the jingle bell spirit.  With that said, I shall leave you with my faaaaaavorite Xmas song:


I just would like to give a big, fat, juicy THANK YOUUUU, GRACIAS, MERCI to everyone who offered their help and support after my last wallpaper crisis post.  We couldn't be more thankful and excited that this "bump in the road" wasn't so bad after all :)
