Slowly but surely, I’m making progress towards putting the finishing touches on my house. My latest focus has been on the entryway — after all, it’s the first room that people walk into when they visit our home. So, I want it to be welcoming, but also functional. This is where we started — I actually made a video and put it on my now abandoned tumblr almost two years ago. Check that out here. Since then, we’ve painted, added a rug and some furniture and just this week, changed the lighting. I actually pinned this Uttermost drum pendant on Pinterest quite a while ago and was lucky to find it at a discounted price at a local lighting store.
Here is the lighting before and after.
I love lighting, and I think it makes such a huge difference in a room. Still, there are quite a few things left to do in the foyer before I consider it finished.
Here is my running list:
Paint — Benjamin Moore Stone Hearth Add sturdy rug — West Elm Boucle Jute Rug Add shoe bench Add coat rack
- Change out console table for colored one (something like this)
- Add photo gallery
- Change window dressings
