Continued from Part 1…
Our entryway is now a perfect reflection of us. It’s nice to look at, feels open and spacious, and has a place to sit for a minute while waiting for the pizza delivery guy to show up.
On top of the console piece we have a pair of St. Enimie Round Glass Vases by Design Toscano (via Wayfair); the yellow bowl and the books are from Gilt.com; I also got a flush mount ceiling fixture from AllModern.
The wall behind the curved wall is now our photo gallery. I designed a pattern that I liked and then selected 9 favorite photos. I promise it wasn’t as simple as that… first I hung up brown paper squares, then I kept changing sizes, etc. Once I’d finalized the pattern, I created it in Excel to figure out the exact dimensions I needed.
The photo sizes are: 1-24″ square; 4-16″ square; and 4- 16×24. I ordered them from Nations Photo Lab with a 1/2″ black gatorboard backing. I ended up painting the sides in black again just because they looked cheap they way they came.
I hung them up with 3M mounting strips. They are very lightweight. It looks incredible! It won’t be expensive to update with new images as I want to replace them.
So that’s our entry. I’ve been keeping it decluttered and have definitely felt a calmness in that area. I love walking toward the door and seeing the new mirror and console too. Makes me happy!
Next stop: the playroom!
