grand entryways are awesome

February 6, 2012

powder room updates are coming, promise. turns out, it's tough to get good shots of a 1 ft x 1 ft room with no natural light. who'd have thought?

but i will say that this has inspired me to go on a painting binge. g's room is next (dark purple, remember?). and then the entryway. so let's just admire this for today, shall we?

first of all, that floor kills. KILLS. i'm also quite smitten with the nice clean ivory paint color up top. then there's the arched doorways, abundance of natural light, the fact that the hall is wide enough for a gorge antique console and dream settee (which i want in my formal right this second, please). those topiaries would look good on my front stoop (eric wants lions. who's gonna win that one?)

at this point, i'm really just focused on the paint color. i need something clean and classic.
any color reccos?

okay, and maybe that settee.
nails.

Stop. That entryway is, wait for it, AWESOME. I love everything about it! If you're looking for white I just used Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee in my playroom and it's a really pretty off-white that doesn't have any yellow in it. Benjamin Moore Linen White is also a classic with a little more yellow in it. I can't wait to see more!

I love me a chevron floor. That whole entry way is just lovely. Oh, and that teal fabric on the settee kills me. As far a wall color I love the historical colors from BM esp. the neutrals.
