Entryway Update

Just a couple of small updates to share with you regarding our entryway/vestibule.

Here's the before:

I've had probably 4 or 5 different rugs in this area since we bought our house.  This latest one is from Sundance Catalog and is a patchwork of different kilim rugs.  What I like about it for the entryway is that it is quite heavy weight so it stays put without a rug pad.  It also hides the dirt and doesn't look dirty even if you wipe muddy shoes on it.  The mud dries and you simply vacuum it up.

Here's the after:

New light fixture from West Elm.  It's not my favourite, but it was less than $70 and works a lot better than the previous one.  If we were going to stay in the house for longer I'd probably go with something a lot fancier and showy.  I also bought a new boot tray from Target which is copper metal (also an upgrade from the plastic tray that was there before).

To see how I made the curtains go here.

And finally, aren't you impressed with my photoshop skills?  I managed to make it so that you can see the outside through the window in the door.  Yeah, kind of looks a bit fake to me too :/

  1. Like the new curtains, they really add some height to the space and the new light fixture is really cute :) I am struggling with what to do with our hallway, it's horrible - never been touched in the 3 years we've lived here! Meh. Another project for another day!! xxx
