  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. That is so special! I love how you’ve incorporated meaningful pieces.

    1. Thanks so much Sarah. I find that I keep doing this more and more the older I get

  3. What an absolutely gorgeous painting Julia! I also love your wonderful tea set. Your home truly is lovely this fall.

    1. Thanks so much Laura, I wish my suitcase would fit more stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. 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!

    1. Thanks Cristina! It drove me crazy that my dad never let my mom rotate anything ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. 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!

    1. Thanks Doreen! He thinks he is the centerpiece ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. 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:-)

    1. Thanks Anita, I’m always terrified that the cats will smash the plate to the ground ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. 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.

  8. Wonderful additions that look as if they were created for this space!!! Hope you had a great trip home, Julia!!!

    1. Thanks Jen, we had a wonderful trip

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. Beautiful painting! You are very lucky to have these pieces from your family.

    1. Thanks Donna, I agree, I’m lucky to have them

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

    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.

  15. 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!

  16. Gorgeous! And even more special when you have those treasured pieces in your home! I really love the artwork and it looks perfect in your space. Happy Fall!

  17. Julia, what a beautiful and special painting! I love the story behind it and how you have incorporated it into your decor. It looks stunning in your dining room!

  18. Love everything, Julia!! Really love your kitchen too – perfection! Happy fall!! xoxo

  19. Love all your fall decor friend! You are AMAZING! Your home has such a warm and vintage and timeless look that it makes you want to stay a while!

    Happy day!
