If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already seen this space but today I’ll be sharing all of the details for not only on the decor but also about our hardwoods, shiplap walls and more. As you enter the front door we have a grand entryway hall with 12′ ceilings. To the right is our new cane console topped with a large mirror, art and decor.
It’s light and airy and best of all has storage – I actually store my vase collection and some of my commonly used faux florals I’m not using at the moment here. I’ll get to the decor in a moment but wanted to review this console for you 1st – you could also use this piece as a buffet. The iron legs add a nice contrast and the cane accents are perfect for today’s decor.
Moving on to the decor – I chose to put this large arched mirror atop the console to open the space up even more. Mirrors always make a space feel larger due to the light reflecting off of it. Minted has been a long time source for me for art prints throughout my home. This one fits into my decor perfectly and compliments the larger piece I have on the opposite wall that I’ll share in a moment. They have such an array of pieces from talented artists all over and it’s always been a favorite place of mine to shop for art! The stems are high quality and I love the mix of the magnolia bud and the quince tougher, which has subtle small, white flowers.
Another new favorite trinket I picked up is this white distressed terra-cotta bowl. It’s simple but has great texture and is perfect to help add a small touch of greenery. It was just perfect to soften all of the hard lines in the space and is truly gorgeous ~ I also absolutely LOVE the reflection in the tall mirror! Here is a view of it and the rest of the space from the living room side of the hallway. Moving on to the chair next to the console which is covered in a black boucle fabric. Boucle is an uneven yarn of three plies one of which forms loops at intervals (source: Merriam-Webster).
Now before I carry on about this amazing piece of art from Minted called “Last Tuesday”, I have to share that I’ve really struggled with this spot. I’ve ordered one of those Chinese wooden benches (that I have at the end of my bed) that are very slim so we’ll see if that works but if not it will stay like this for now.
I’m also on the lookout for a nice runner but that’s also been quite the challenge as I need one that’s about 14′-16′ long and the pickings are slim at that length.
My hubby hung it with some heavy duty command strips linked below.
The nail holes were puttied and sanded 3 times before it was actually painted – gosh it seemed like it took forever. I could do a whole blog post on this but just to quickly give you the details ~ the balusters are square and go down into the wood stair treads, and are roughly 5.5″ apart.
This is my favorite view of this space…in the alcove there you’ll see some cabinetry I added during construction that would have otherwise been an empty nook. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit our Entryway Tour ~ I hope you’ve enjoyed it and please let me know in the comments below if you have any questions!
