Home Tour | Part 2... Our Dining Nook

Oct 1, 2014

I'm back with part two of our home tour. Yay! I love putting these posts together + taking photos of our space... even if interior photography isn't really my strong suit - I love it all the same! And speaking of love? I'm pretty in love with our dining nook, we decided to paint it a lovely brick red a few years ago and we haven't stopped oogling over it since. It's warm, inviting and looks great against our beige walls and dark chocolate hued kitchen. One day, I'd love an all white home, perhaps for our next place we'll choose an all white canvas. But in the meantime, colour it is! ;)

We're excitedly working on several updates for our home this year... adding hardwood floors, a new gallery wall, area rug, drapes and gorgeous custom throw pillows. Once we're all done, I hope to have our home professionally photographed. But in the meantime, I hope you enjoyed these! And did ya notice Scout in the last shot?! Ha, photo bomb! xo

PS - You can peek at part one of our home tour, here. I photographed our patio a few weeks back!

  6. Love the red wall! I hear red is always a good color to go with in a room where people eat like the kitchen or dining room! :)

    Can't wait to see your new gallery wall by the way. I tried to put one together a couple weeks ago, but it was actually more difficult than I thought it would be! >.<

  13. That Scout, what a little rebel - I always love hie photo bobs, mainly because I don't think he even realizes he's so close to the camera. He just has so much fur! I must admit, he is definitely my favourite thing in your home, but your dining nook may be a close second - I've never seen a red wall work so well as it does in your beautiful space. And how exciting about the upcoming rents, I can't wait to see the results!

  16. I love the red! It's gorgeous. My parents had one red wall in their old house and I loved it so much. I was so upset when they painted over it, haha.

  20. Aw, thank you! <3 As for the white?! Oh man, we're really tempted... but we're thinking like a warm creamy white with pops of colour in our accents, and adding dark wood floors! Happy Friday, girl! xo

  21. I hear that. I remember when Martin & I were getting married we really buckled to down to save up, but afterwards we celebrated with a home reno!! So excited for you guys, love weddings & marriage!! <3

  22. Yes, I've heard the same... red is great in dining areas because it actually wakes up the appetite. Mind you, that could be both good and bad! ;) As for your gallery wall? Fun, would love to see yours, and yes, I'll be sure to share mine soon!! <3

  26. We traded carpets for wood (albeit laminate) several years ago, dearest Veronika...our next home improvement project will likely be upgrading to the "real thing!!" Other than that, our condo is finally exactly the way we always dreamed...and yes, it includes a lot of white!! But pops of bright are never a bad thing; besides, isn't red considered to be the perfect colour for an eating space because it's so stimulating?! XOXO

  27. Wow the red really warms the place up. And woot, i *love* hardwood floor spaces. I mean, who doesn't? That's a huge project though- good luck with all the fun renovating :)
