Home Tour: The Entryway

entry way / foyer

We’ve been making lots of progress on the house, so I thought I’d share a quick update today. The entryway is one area that I consider somewhat ‘complete.’ Here is how it looked just after we painted:

And here is how it looks today:

Since we have entire rooms that we didn’t have before (and need to purchase new furniture for those rooms), we’re almost entirely re-using pieces we already owned to decorate the entryway. The console table (identical to the one in our family room) and bench were purchased about 10 years ago from West Elm. The mirror is something I’ve had since high school (not sure if I can say that about any of the other furnishings in the house), and the yellow resin painting is by Sacramento artist, Kim Squaglia. Our only new purchases for this space is the striped rug from Crate and Barrel and a large glass jug, which I filled with all of the wine corks my husband has saved since we got married.
