Welcome to my first-ever monthly download! I am so pumped about this!
Over the last two years, I’ve been able to work with a select group of clients on custom designs for their homes that started out as virtual inspiration! I’ve found that putting together virtual moodboards is the best way to envision colors, shapes and even textures in a space together.
I know a custom design isn’t in the budget for everyone, and because I absolutely love playing with different home objects I source, whether they fit into my home or not, I thought it would be fun to share monthly collections of those finds here, in a curated space that walks you through the design, why I placed them together and the links you can use to shop the items you like!
If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, you know I love the fall season, and I use August as my platform to jump to it. Because this month is near and dear to my heart, I thought I’d showcase our new entryway, a space that is quickly becoming near is dear to my heart, too!
When designing this entryway, I, of course, had my own home and living room in mind. This particular room of the house has an open concept layout, so I wanted to keep an open flow within the space, utilizing primarily the permitter of the room (the space to the right of the sideboard is completely open and where our living room begins)!
I considered a traditional entryway wall of hooks and a bench to the left of the chairs, as well as a round table centered on the rug, but because our front door is centered on the wall opposite the credenza, and it opens in the direction of the chairs, I thought it best to keep it simple and call some furniture and decor to action and serve as our foyer “dumping ground,” if you will. We all have one!
How I did this:
Two chairs, instead of a bench, to fill the space (and, there is a really large set of windows behind them!), a credenza with lots of storage for functionality, a vessel/bowl to drop keys, wallets, and the like, and a tall plant for some life!
A simple formula, really, and my spin on an “entryway.” It doesn’t have to be cluttered to be functional. Hiding everyday objects in furniture and bowls/baskets is the name of the aesthetic game.
I hope you love it!
I appreciate you being part of my community more than you know.
