Design Project: The Small Entryway

Designing and decorating your home — in a way that has a truly collected feeling — takes time, lot’s of time. I’ve been working on mine for a cool two years and obviously part of that is budget — I want to make investments rather than stock up on cheap, trendy items. Now don’t get me wrong, just like fast-fashion, I think there’s a time and a place for those trendy pieces with a shelf-life — they’re perfect as quirky accents that you can mix and match at the drop of a hat.

I’ve almost finished the living room and I’ve started to notice how horrifyingly empty my upstairs entryway is; every time I walk into the house I’m reminded of the fact that I have yet to finish this house! So I’ve pivoted my sights away from the gallery wall (though I’m still looking and collecting the pieces I need) and onto this new small, but mighty space (it’s only 5×7!). I’m envisioning a gorgeous, weathered Kilim rug nestled under an inviting bench and flanked by a coatrack (it’s a necessity); but whatever I go with has to go with my vintage Spice Girls poster. Keep reading to see some of my favorite picks.
