Dining Room

We are attempting to get back into the swing of things here at la casa. We took a long hiatus after the 1st birthday bash. We were just worn out. Add in new job (for Nick)/budgeting to be single income (yeah that's right I'm staying home...yikes)/life into the mix, we are just now mustering enough energy to deal with the massive amount of things left to do around here.

We are focusing on the formal dinning room of all places. We found this really cool piece at an antique mall in Dallas, so we've been bouncing ideas off each other ever since. (Side note: Yeah big step for us that we didn't buy it immediately without having a clear direction for the remainder of the room. Hope it's still there when/if we decide to pounce.)

We both love it. Nick fears that the room could go uber shaddy chic or traditional in a hurry if we aren't careful. This would go to the left of the window and serve as a mini buffet - a place to decorate and a little more storage. We are still debating on the "real" buffet for the long wall. Here are a few options.

The Concord Media Cabinet from Room & Board (in walnut, not the ebony that's shown)

We both really loved this when we saw it in LA. We don't so much love the price. In fact it makes me short of breath thinking about it. Maybe I can find one on craigslist in the free section.

The Luna Buffet from Organic Modernism

Nick passed by a store in New York that carried Organic Modernism. It immediately perked his interest thus spurring him into research on this option. A huge plus for this is it's reasonable and modern. Two things that rarely go together (unless you are talking about cheesy modern). It's 18.5 inches deep though which might be too deep for the room.

Of course that all depends on the chairs we go with...
