The Entryway

June 14, 2011

I never posted this, but I updated the entryway to our house several months ago. 

Before:


After:
Wreath- Handmade/From Wedding, Hook- Anthro, Entry Table- World Market, Vase- giftted, Rug- Surya, Overstock (No longer available)

I was really skeptical about putting a light colored rug right by the front door.  My experience has been light colored anything near an outside door = dirty all the time.  HOWEVER, this rug is awesome because it's wool.  All I have to do is vacuum it and the dirt comes right out - it looks brand new again!  (So helpful with two dogs).  If I could afford it, I would furnish my whole house in wool rugs. (I highly recommend them, and so does Sara).

I reused the key hook (in the first picture) by moving it to our hallway closet to hold my scarves:


I was so happy that I found a way to reuse it and organize!!
 
Also, I've noticed the quality of my pictures drastically decrease when I upload them to my picasa web album.  I've been decreasing the size when uploading them and it screws everything up.  Somehow I forgot this, maybe I need to blog more... So, I'm going to have to re-upload all my mirror pictures before I can post them here (perhaps tomorrow??), and maybe some better pictures of the entryway...
In the mean time, here's a sneak peak :)

Isn't it amazing how a few different pieces can drastically change the look of a space? Your entry looks really great and I love the personal touch of the wedding wreath. It's funny, the entry was the first room that I "did" in our house and it's still my favorite :)
