An entry is the first impression your guests receive when entering your home. This space becomes the appetizer of what is to come. So why not treat this space a little differently and let your guests wonder and salivate – what’s behind door number two?!
Typically an entry becomes a hallway to another room. However, there is no reason an entry can’t be functional – and gorgeous (of course!). We began with the soloist of the space – the console. This classic French demilune is elongated with clean, smooth lines and tapered legs. Each door is designed with oval brass rings and grill overlays. I have truly never seen anything like it! Both my client and I feel in love! This console becomes a perfect resting spot for a tray full of keys, a candle, or even a fresh bouquet of flowers just plucked from your garden.
We flanked the console with two Farm Wing Chairs and slipped them into a hand designed Hable fabric. The size and scale of these chairs alone will leave anyone with a lasting impression! Above each Farm Wing Chair we stacked a few pieces of art- this gives the entry a colorful and personal touch. In addition to just being a beautiful, the chairs can also be easily moved into her family room for additional seating when entertaining.
No entry is complete without a mirror. A mirrored surface is not only useful, it’s also beautiful. Silver has a liquid quality that’s incredibly calming and serene – despite its hard veneer. This will become a great little spot to touch up your lipstick or fix those loose hairs before you welcome your friends and family in for a little appetizer of the senses.
P.S. Keep posted for installation photos!
