Last month I was reading this post on Bryn Alexandra’s blog about the importance of a home’s entryway. I’ve known that our home’s foyer was blah ever since we moved in, but I wasn’t that bothered about it. Suddenly, after reading that post, I couldn’t get it out of my head. A few days later, I was clicking around on Overstock, and I found a piece of furniture that I thought might work. Then I remembered the table from Target, I had seen at Isabella and Max Rooms. And then the cherry on top happened! I realized that the giant blank wall going up my stairway, could become my version of Lauren’s at Pure Style Home, which I have been drooling over for a year. And coincidentally, is in December’s Better Homes and Gardens. Now do you see why reading design blogs is dangerous for me?!
I’m not done, but here’s what I have so far:
Here is a better, but unfinished after. The fabric is just wrapped around the pillow because I haven’t had the cover made yet.
I added a picture to one wall, and it looks a lot better in my humble opinion. 😉
I love this table and especially the feet!
Here is that big blank wall:
I have the frames (same size), but I’m still working on collecting the pictures. I’ll also need to have mats cut, as each picture is a different size. There will probably be about 20 pictures in all. Here is a sneak peek of two that came in the mail today:
The artist for the pictures above is Flor Larios. As I am writing this post, I am remembering that my friend Lou’s entryway is full of Mary art. So not only am I easily influenced, but I will copy everyone! 😉
