{Entryway} Reveal

Happy Monday all! Back to the grind after a little time off. It was a gorgeous weekend here in N.C. and I felt very productive! How about you?

I have been talking about my entryway since January! Yep...I am a little behind with showing you my progress. If you remember I gave you a little sneak peek here. I did a little update to the entryway bench here. I also had trouble picking the "perfect" gray for this space here. I gave you all an update and showed you my plan for the entryway here. that you are all caught up on my entryway, I would like to show you what it looks like! I am very happy with how it turned out. All of my rooms are always in progress, but it is done for now. The only thing I still need to change are the ceiling lights. (So please excuse the builder grade boob lights!)

Loving my carpet tiles from FLOR! Soft on your feet and easy to clean!

I splurged on this little beauty from Z gallerie! LOVE!

Framed some FREE printables I found online. 

Gosh...loving this angle! My brother did an amazing job on the boxed molding and it really makes my new kitchen pendant from West Elm shine! 

A little close up of the geometric fabric I found at JoAnn Fabrics!

Here are a few before and after pics:

PICTURE OVERLOAD! Sorry! I couldn't decide what pictures to show you all!

What do you think?

**You will notice that the wall behind the bench and the wall going up the stairway near the umbrella stand are a creamy color. This was/is the color of the whole house when we moved in. Those two walls do not match the hallway color at this time. There isn't a molding break into the dining room, so I am trying to decide what to do with those walls. I may or may not paint them the same color as the entry hallway. It is always a work in progress!**

TDC Before and After


  1. Looks great -- I would love to add boxed molding to my home's entry, but have no idea how to do it!

    1. Thanks so much! I am very happy with it. I am great on the design part, but my brother is the handy one who uses the saw!

  2. Between the concept and execution, you and your brother make a great design team. Seriously, the boxed moulding is wonderful. But I also love your choice of soft colors and modern fabrics and accent pieces (like the starburst mirror, is that the Martha Stewart for Home Depot one, it looks identical to it) to complement the traditional details. Oh, I also love FLOR tiles, have them several places in my home. The entry has a lot of interest going on without being overwhelming; nicely done especially for a smaller space.


    1. Thanks Robin! I am very lucky to have a wonderfully handy brother. The sunburst mirror is from the Martha Stewart collection at HD. I love how it brings a little modern into the traditional space. I appreciate all of your comments!

  3. I love your blog. You are very talented! Thanks for sharing all your ideas and inspiration.

  4. How nice and refreshing..I love it! Thanks for linking up at friday fun party.. Have a nice weekend!

  5. Beautiful!! Where did you get the black stand?

    1. It was actually from a warehouse close to Highpoint, NC. If you google entryway benches, you can find some similar!

  6. You are very talented! I'm inspired!
