I Want That Room! {3.14}

Yikes! I've been woefully absent from my blog this week. Craziness ensues in my family at the moment, but I was determined to make time for my favorite post of the week!

Here's the room I'm lusting for this week:

Via Pinterest

Obviously, the gorgeous inky blue on the walls is the biggest draw for me. I just love this color to begin with, but I'd never have thought to use it in a dining room. It helps that there is plenty of natural light and white surfaces and fabrics to offset the darkness. The relative simplicity of the room allows the walls to stand out.

I also love the dining room table and chairs. They look antique and a little worn, which just adds to the charm. Except the two head chairs, of course, which look very comfortable. Can't you imagine lingering over a nice dinner with family or friends? Everything else in this room is just the perfect eclectic mix of traditional and modern. There's a pretty tea set resting on a traditional credenza, but a modern painting hangs over it. You have an antique dining table, but it is paired with some unexpected chairs and graphic pillows.

Just fantastic, isn't it?
