Dining Room Tour with a Kate Spade Inspired Gallery Wall

I know, I know… if you want to be a good blogger you need to blog often, have excellent photography, exciting, unique content… blah, blah, blah. I know these things, you know these things and my perfectionist side knows these things. However, I made a deal with myself that this blog would just be for fun. So I am trying not to feel guilty about the time in between my blog posts (I have been enjoying my summer break!) or fixate on my photography of our house (it’s like freakin’ impossible to photograph- lighting sucks, weird reflections everywhere, etc. etc.) and most importantly I am trying not to obsess over the house in general. I went through this little phase like a week and half ago where I just wanted to tear everything down and start over. I was over analyzing ever creative decision I made and I just became really, really sick of everything. Then I put down the sledge hammer (kidding!) and had some drinks outside. 

Our neighbor who was having a drink with us in our yard asked if she could use our powder room really quick and when she stepped inside our house for the first time she had a really sweet and enthusiastic reaction to everything. It made me kind of see everything with fresh eyes and I realized I had been trippin’. So even though I am still kinda longing for white walls, (maybe I will get into that later) I am back to be being happy and satisfied in this little piece of Austin that we own. 

                I know what you’re thinking- where are the pictures at lady?! So here ya go- a tour of our dining room- (One more plea to excuse the photography, the lighting is always crap and the reflections on all the glass and frames…. Disaster.)

I am loving all the color in the house- it feels so happy and chic! Have a great weekend y'all! (That's right I have only lived here 7 months and I already actively use "y'all"- I blame it on my students...)


  1. I have to say that is one of THE most simply beautiful dining rooms I have seen in a long time.Double TV Bed in Brown

  2. Thank you so much, that is beyond sweet of you to say!

  3. What color are your walls? They're beautiful!
