making rooms {finished entry way}

September 28, 2013

Another area of the house has been completed and I am excited to share some of the highlights today.


It’s crazy how such a small space can have such an impact.  For a while, the only thing in this area was the blue rug.  I purchased it from Joss & Main.  They always have such great rugs!!!  I love the rug.  It was  a favorite item for a while (I love blue!), but the area wasn’t very…cozy…welcoming…homey…you know…


I needed a table.  Of some sort.  I wanted something small and was having a hard time finding it, so I bought an unfinished table from Wayfair to finish.  It was going to be stained, but that wasn’t working out so well.  I love the blues and greens and mints and REALLY love metallics, so I went with a mint table with gold dipped legs.  It was inspired by a pair of mint and gold shoes that Moira has, and by this fabulous table.


The knob is from Anthropologie…I used my birthday coupon on that too.  (Don’t ever pay full price for anything?!?!?)



The wall art is a combo of found items and handmade.  I displayed some vintage post cards I found at an antique shop on a plain white background.  These postcards are images of places that relate to our wedding day…the places where we had pictures and the fountain at the location where we had our reception.  They were a great find!  The “hello” word art was done with the sketch pens on my Silhouette.  And that watercolor…that was a first go at doing watercolors, inspired by Burlap and Blue.


And finally, it is all dressed up for fall.  Minus my metallic skull, this should last until Christmas time!


Hope you enjoyed the mini tour of my entry!  Have a great day!
