All the way back in March we made over our entry wall. It was a huge project that took a lot of time to get right. Our goal was to modernized the rock. We didn’t want to remove the rock completely because we loved the texture and character. Thankfully it ended up working out and we absolutely love it, and we especially love it now with the furniture and decor! It still has that 1970’s Ranch style feel. Ready to see what it looks like now when you walk into our home??
The after! You can see exactly what we did to the rock wall on this post. We did add stairs that lead to our second floor, so the view is a little different. But still the same spot!
One big change was to the front doors. While we did like the original door, we just wanted more light! Always more light! So we installed glass and iron doors to let in more light.
I was able to fit a 4’x9′ rug in our entry, which was a hard size to find! The right size rug in an entry can really make the space feel like a cozy room, and not just a place to drop shoes. I shared where I found the rug HERE.
Our ceilings are 8′ heigh so we had to do a flush mount fixture. I have a thing for anything star design. Went with this star flush mount.
Really love how our banister turned out! We went with black iron, since we have that repeated throughout our home with the doorknobs and doors. Who knew that would be hard to pick out and execute exactly what we wanted. Picking out a stair banister starts from the framing. I would have liked to see the edges of the stairs (no wall, open on the side), but because of the way the stairs turn to go up and the stairs under that go to the basement, it wouldn’t have worked.
Our stairs are in the same wood as our floor throughout our entire home, EuropeanOak from Opus in Acropolis.
I did this entry console, which was the perfect narrow size. I also like how it is simple and modern, making it easy to mix in any decor. And this jute ottoman is a nice spot to sit and put shoes on, and pulls in the mirror.
Natural wood mirror with carved detailing has been on my wish list for awhile! I like how it lightens up the dark console.
Snapped that photo of the deer in our front yard one snowy morning. (You can save it HERE).
We don’t have an entry closet, we took it out for the stairs. This coat tree works great for guest coats!
We had enough room for this arched armoire, making a closet for our coats! Plus I like how it defines the space and creates a room.
We hung this rod in here and found narrow hangers that would fit and hold coats.
Found that unique narrow vintage bench in California when we were thrift shopping.
And that leads to our dining room! I haven’t shared that room yet, but here is a peek!
