To know me, is to know our entry will never be done. It’s alway evolving. So, don’t take this post as, the entry reveal. This is more of a–we’ve made a lot of great updates in the past couple months and here is what it looks like now.
The first big change was this long vintage runner from The Vintage Rug Shop. I love the layered look over our FLOR carpet squares. Even though the FLOR squares are washable, the runner adds an extra element of camouflage, too. Charly can’t resist it.
The second change was adding three more of these hooks to the back wall. While we added a coat closet, off the laundry room, to our home last year (can you believe our house never had one?), it’s still nice to have a place to conveniently hang our every-day gear–backpacks, jackets, diaper bags. Four hooks for a family of 4 should have been plenty, but we have company so often, it’s nice to have a few extra available for guests.
Of course that meant the mirror that used to be on that wall needed to be moved. For a little while, this large Blu Dot floor length mirror was moved to our room, but I couldn’t find the perfect one for this entry before our Friendsgiving, so I moved it here and it’s kind of nice! I like the height it adds and who doesn’t love a leaning mirror (this one is secured to the wall so it won’t tip)? The only downside is it’s too narrow for the wall, which is where a large plant comes into play. Is the plant kind of dead? Yes. But it’s also kind of alive, so we’re attempting to nurse it back to health--although in the back of my mind I already ordered this Faux Fiddle Leaf as a permanent, will-never-die-on-me replacement.
Like I said, the entry is ever-evolving. We have plans to work on the stairwell a little more this winter and maybe one day I’ll find the perfect perfect mirror, but for now, we feel refreshed with the changes. Change is good for that and sometimes it just takes shifting a few things around in your own home.
Let’s end with where we started–the entry when we moved in, and now.
