  1. Love this room and the painting is such a fabulous heirloom and so beautiful. I think you picked the perfect frame. I always think this room is the prettiest ever with each new addition. Thanks so much for joining the tour again this season.

    1. Thank you so much Marty! I like it so much better now then the previous version with the glass table and we use it so much more.

  2. Julia, how lucky of you to have inherited those beautiful pieces.. The two paintings are gorgeous. The new frame highlights perfectly those golden hues, not only in the painting but in the room as well.
    And yes, I totally agree with you about rotating heirlooms, antiques or collections to keep rooms looking fresh!

  3. You do not disappoint! The colors in that painting are amazing and it looks like it was made for this space in your dining room with the settee! And, the Chinese plate is stunning! Of course, Walter adds the perfect seasonal touch! Love it all, Julia!

  4. Oh my goodness Julia, that painting!!! Wow, what an incredibly special treasure! And the tea set and plate are amazing as well! Love the family connections and that you treasure them:-)

  5. julia- how wonderful and special to have meaningful pieces of art in our home that tell a story and connection to your family. The picture is a perfect blend of seasonal colors although would look lovely anytime of the year.

  6. I absolutely adore your dining room, girl. I love how you incorporated such a cool (and personal) piece of history into your design scheme. Beautifully done.

  7. Julia,
    It’s always a treat to visit your gorgeous home. I love the eclectic feel, and it’s always so spotless! That painting is fabulous. I was just hanging a few more of my thrift store oils on my staircase and some are in need of those clips you mentioned. Thanks for sharing!

  8. You had me at antiques! I love how you have added special vintage pieces in with your chic and stylish decor. I also love your natural fall touches.

    So happy to join you this week for the tours. Happy fall!

  9. Ha–I was scrolling down hoping that you’d include at least one cat picture and you didn’t disappoint! I love all of your wonderful family pieces, especially that portrait of your great-grandmother. So special! Happy fall, Julia!

  10. Love your black kitty. True to life – my cats ‘play’ when I’m away – to include perching on my dining room
    table – sprawled on the placemats – and knocking off any item on the kitchen counter that interferes with stretching out for a nice nap. I can not have life flowers in the house for this reason…the cats will destroy them and break the container.

  11. This is so wonderful! What a special painting! The message on the back from your grandmother is priceless! It looks amazing in your breakfast area! I love the settee on the side of the table. It’s a gorgeous space!
