At Home With Heidi Kenney

At Home With Heidi Kenney via A Beautiful MessWe are excited to welcome our pal, Heidi Kenney, on the blog today to share her fun dining area with us!

Love the vintage detailsAt Home With Heidi Kenney"Hello I am Heidi Kenney, I'm a toy & plush designer living in Pennsylvania with my husband and two boys. We live in a 100 year old home, which we love to decorate with all of our collections. I thought I've give you a peek at our dining room which is the most used space in our home."

Adorable cupcake canistersLove all the colors in these rooms"The thing that gets the most comments is our Pez case. Our friend Brett who is a way bigger Pez collector then us made the case for his own collection, once he outgrew the cabinet he sold it to us."This pez collection is so fun!"My favorite find in this space is our aqua hutch. I had been looking for a cabinet to house my Santa collection which stays out year round. I found this piece at a thrift shop for $35. I painted it the aqua because some of the wood wasn't in the best shape, and a few pieces had been replaced with laminate. But I'm really happy with how it turned out."

Year-round santasSweet dining area"This is where we eat all of ours meals, play board games, and where the kids work on their homework. I have a "crafternoon" get together once a month and then this space is slightly transformed with added tables and chairs to accommodate everyone."

At Home With Heidi Kenney via ABMHeidi Kenney's extensive toy collection"We have lived in our home for about six years now. This is the first home we have owned, so we really love it. Since my husband and I are both collectors who love antique shops the space has changed as we find new items. and let go of items. A lot of our most favorite things stay the same, but I joke that we play Tetris with moving furniture around a lot whenever we find a beautiful old cabinet we can't leave behind."

So many fun details!Heidi Kenney's lovely dining areaThanks so much for sharing your space with us, Heidi! You can stop by and say hello to Heidi over at her blog My Paper Crane! xo.

  • Such a fun space! I NEED that PEZ cabinet…my poor PEZ collection isn’t able to be displayed at the moment. Tragic!

  • Someone else who is obsessed with Christmas enough to display it year round! How beautiful!!! Love your Santa Mugs!!!!

  • Wow! You’re organization skills must be amazing!

  • I was just telling my husband last night that I want to cover our walls with “things.” This is a perfect example! The At Home/Work Woth series is certainly one of my favs. Keep up the good work!

  • Wow it’s amazing what you did with your home. I really enjoy getting a peek into the lives of other women and mothers and seeing how they make their houses homes.

  • You have got to check out her crafternoon posts everyone. They are awesome. I have been following heidi for awhile now and her posts never disappoint. She is one of my fav’s.


  • Awesome, love all the collections! Plus the old house with tall windows is just perfect. I love old houses. Thanks for sharing! xx

  • I love the colour of the mustard walls paired with the aqua cabinet. Such a great combination! And Santas: what an unusual collection!

  • Wow, i love this home. The santa masks on the wall are so cool! i would love to have those hanging on my walls too:)

  • So cute and colorful!

  • This home makes me happy! I don’t think I could walk into it and not smile. 🙂

  • Amazing place!

  • Really cool home!! 🙂 Cool that you are sharing this with us, your followers! 🙂 It’s a bit busy but it’s nice. I like all the colors!

    Visit my blog sometime:

  • I don’t want this to sound mean but I am so happy this space looks different than all of the other “at home” posts. I love the white walls look but everyone’s space ends up looking exactly the same. This space looks truly unique!

  • How lovely!


  • Finally a room with some colour on the walls! Love how they have organized all of their collections, and that not every space is crowded; there’s a lot of floor space, and with those gorgeous big windows, it doesn’t feel completely overwhelming. It can bee all too easy to clutter yourself into a black hole when you’re a collector!

  • I love all of these houses you show on your blog- it gives me great ideas for my own!

  • Every home I see and love has white walls, and I have been so reluctant to paint ours white because I don’t want to take away from our huge baseboards and window casings that are also white. Now I know you can use bright colours on the walls and it still looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  • I am in LOVE with those cupcakes in the window and the hutch! She captures a space the way I’d like to one day. It feels cozy and I adore the thought of “Crafternoons” thanks for the share!

  • Love the vintage feel in some of the rooms !

  • Oh my gosh that hutch with the vintage santas inside!! I have a very tiny vintage santa collection and am wishing I had that beautiful hutch in my home. The red and white santas look amazing with the turquoise paint. Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful space and a new blog to read!

  • I’m amazed at how so much STUFF can look so tidy and uncluttered. I could never pull that off. I have so much less stuff and still feel overwhelmed. Well done!

    That is an impressive PEZ collection.

  • I love Heide’s house! Every pic inspires me to make something, but mostly start collecting something special! Thanks for Sharing-

  • I love the idea of keeping Christmas out all year round! I don’t think I’d be able to convince Husband, though!! Also, that mustard yellow paint is so perfect!

  • I love this! That shade of yellow on the walls next to the aqua hutch is amazing. I’m also super jealous of that collection of masks! xo

  • whoa. that is like the mecca of collections. holy cow, so neat.

  • Oh, I love Heidi! I have known her forever. She is so awesome and talented!!


  • Wow! this home surely has a ton of character and I love all of the colors. Its seems to truly represent the homeowners. I really like what they did with the space!

  • beautiful! I like to paint furniture bright colors, as well! We’re decorating our new house in Germany (how did that happen??) and I’m loving bright colors here!

  • I love the colors! Not to mention the collectables are amazing. Thanks for sharing, Heidi!


  • her collections are so amazing! i adore her kitchen, thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Wow! What a beautiful space. I love this series!


  • I love your In the Night Kitchen print above the door!!!! Where on earth?? This was one of my favourites when I was little…he got naked, tee hee!!!!!!

  • Aw this is adorable! Absolutely adore the Aqua hutch though! Such a lovely colour plus it looks great!

  • These are such fun collection! Definitely a different space then normally featured and I love it! Those mustard walls and hardwood floors are perfect.

  • Their dining room is like an antique shop in itself! And I love the aqua hutch. Aqua is such a great color for the kitchen and dining room, along with bright greens.

  • I follow Heidi’s blog and I love the peeks she gives us of her home from time to time. It’s so colorful and cheery!

  • These collections are amazing! But I can’t help but think about how much dusting would be involved. Haha 🙂

  • Wow, her home is gorgeous! I absolutely love all the colors she has going on! Thanks so much for sharing the inspiration 🙂


  • I love all of the personal touches, like the santa collection and the Pez cabinet! The aqua color of the hutch is gorgeous and bight. I’m loving this series!


  • So bright and full of life. I love all the collections – they are fantastic. Thanks for sharing this wonderful space!

  • What an interesting room! Please tell me, are those miniature stoves on the wall by the window?

  • I love it.I think my favorite part are the vintage stoves on the wall lol

  • What a gorgeous space and fascinating collection! 🙂 Love the yellow walls.

  • I love the at home series I’ve found so many fun and interesting blogs from it!

    I’ve never seen so many Pez before – they look cool in the cabinet!!

    I love the exposed radiator in the back, it feels really homely.


  • I love the colors of your walls especially! This is such a fun way to discover other blogs/bloggers 🙂

  • Gorgeous space and bursting at the seams with personality! Love and thanks for sharing!

    I have a weird, open faced bookcase that needs a little pick me up. I think I’m going to thrift some windows to replicate the look on that mustardy-green cabinet. Love that!

  • Oh my goodness….I have that same hutch painted the same color…cute cute:-)

  • Such a beautiful and whimsical dining space. I especially love the black picture frames against the mustard yellow wall.

  • I just love pez…looks like a fun collection!

  • I love this series! But, I’d like to see maybe some more rentals and also maybe a studio apartment to get some inspiration 🙂

  • I LOVE the aqua hutch. It’s so cute!


  • Wow, that’s what I call a (or several rather) collection! What a lovely room, I actually really like that old radiator…

  • Out of everything going on in this room i think my favourites parts are the flooring, the shape of the room and radiators! Is that weird? Everything else is amazing too, don’t get me wrong!

    i love the yellow cupboard too
