You'll have to excuse me this week- as the first week back in full-on flip mode, my smashy smashy work/life/diy balance is a bit thrown off.  When my mind gets a bit overwhelmed, I always find that taking a few calm moments to peruse Pinterest or a magazine helps to get me refocused, so that's exactly what I'm sharing with you today. Let's all get zen and refocus.

I found this on Pinterest yesterday and was instantly in love.

Glamorous Housewife Dining Room

This is the dining room of The Glamorous Housewife as featured in Country Living Mag.

I don't think I've ever seen a rustic table and fiberglass chairs ever look so sophisticated!  If I was in the market for a new house, I'd probably buy this one JUST for that built-in!  Hubba hubba is she a looker!  Oh dear, that's 3 sentences with exclamation points in a row- dial down the excitement, Karen.

Aaanyway....  aside from the built-in that I'd give my first born for, my favorite element in the space is the wallpapered ceiling.  Whimsical meets sophisticated in just the right balance.  I think that's actually the theme of this room.  It's playful, rustic, and ridiculously chic all at the same time.

Well done!

Are we all feeling calmer now?  Hopefully we're all in a good place now to take on Monday.  Have a great week!
