Our dining room has come together. We love, love, love this room. We eat here, collect mail piles here, drop off our bags here. It’s a true family dining room, happy, colorful, and used.
Enjoy the tour!
BEFORE:
When we toured this house, above is what the dining room looked like.
AFTER:

And this is what it looks like now with our style and colors. The first thing we did was switch out the lighting, and paint the walls (Gifford Green by Benjamin Moore). We loooovvve this color. It’s soothing and calm while still being a color.

We’ve always had mixed match chairs, and we love the casual whimsy of it. The rug is an old Pottery Barn rug. The table is made from old barn wood, bought at Restoration Hardware.

This hutch was turquoise, and I purposely sanded it with an electric sander to reveal the green and wood that was underneath. The result? I dig it.
I’m working on collecting vintage flower paintings for the wall above. This little corner makes me happy. Lamp is an old Creative Co-op lamp, no longer in production.
I found the middle curtains at a junk store for a major bargain. They’re vintage barkcloth and I totally fell in love, but didn’t have a place to put them until it occurred to me that I could mix-match curtains in our dining room. Why not? I love the effect.

Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.

Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
