So along with the bed thing, I
wanted needed a house with an entry/foyer/lobby. I’ve always loved a furnished entry, there’s just something about walking into a well thought out entrance that makes me feel all cozy inside. Kinda like these:
Other than the “to die for” wallpaper or crazy green carpet, these looks aren’t too difficult to accomplish. You just need to wait for the right “thing” to jump out at you (I mean, your entry IS the first impression of your home). So anyways, we did end up finding a house that has an entryway, it’s small, but it’s there. Unfortunately nothing was “jumping out” at me and it was the most ignored space in our house (shame on me). But, one day when we steamed our carpets (wish list: hand carved tobacco road hardwood floors) and moved furniture into the entry. It was a vision, the icing on the cake. It was what I needed to focus on. A few months prior to my vision I put in this lil number:
But it wasn’t enough. Now we needed a rug….this was just what the doctor ordered.
STILL not enough, I needed a table. I have been looking in every home store to find a lil something that isn’t too intrusive, too big, too small, too short, too tall, but most importantly, not too ‘spensive. I’d love to plop a fab $700 occasional table in the entryway, but let’s be honest here, it ain’t happening. So thanks to Saturday’s Ikea jaunt we may have found ourselves a little friend:
So so so????? Thoughts? Do we like the table? Is it the right size? Does it get lost with the white behind it? Am I the most indecisive person ever? Do I need to start a fundraiser for floors and a $700 occasional table????
