Boomer Sooner in Red and White

Posted in Bloggity by laurencorbyn on October 12, 2009

It’s a short week for OU fans as the annual trek to Dallas usually begins on Friday morning.  I’m heading down with family for the much anticipated OU vs. Texas game this weekend.  It’s a weekend of football, the State Fair of Texas (beer and ridiculous amounts of fried food), shopping and hopefully a win under the Sooners’ belt.

Our traditions seem to surround restaurant choices with a pre-game Friday night dinner at Nobu (yellowtail sashimi with chilies and ponzu? yes please) and a postgame dinner of crab claws and  mushroom pizza at Campisi’s.  Between dinners we will feast on corndogs at the fairgrounds.  I am determined to try something fried that I’ve never had before, though I will avoid the “deep fried butter” I heard was actually at the fair this year.  Gross.

Anyway, in the spirit of fall and football:  my Boomer Sooner inspired color palette:

A little more restrained.  Love those beams.

I LOVE this image! I fell in love with this when House Beautiful printed it last year.  Completely forgot about it until today.  Fabulous and fresh holiday decorating.  And you could do this in so many color palettes.

Not my favorite as I think it’s starting to look a little dated, but the idea of a red kitchen is fun and I like how vertical it is for a small space:

Is that an Ikea bed all fancied up with a canopy and skirt?

I enjoy this quirky style:

This is what I like in a powder bath: a crazy wallpaper, a little glitz, and a cool pedestal sink.

And I’ll leave you with one of my favorite inspirations, Belgian style:

      Okay, so I actually TRIED the fried butter. It was amazing. Basically it was just fried dough studded with bits of butter. It tasted like a cross between a crescent roll and a doughnut. My brother-in-law made me do it. I mean, he ordered them (they were donut hole size), and then ate them in front of me, so I had to join in.
