Lovely (Late) Monday: Entrance Inspiration

June 7, 2011

I’ve been looking for inspiration for our mudroom/entry. Last week, we finally got rid of our old fridge that had been sitting there for, um, well, way too long. It took up almost a quarter of the mudroom and now that it’s gone, I feel so much better walking through our front door.

The entry of your house really sets the mood and ideally gives a taste of the rest of the house…so with that in mind, I went looking for some inspiring photos:

I have long loved this entry by Lauren Liess from Pure Style Home:

Doesn’t this make you want to have a small tree in your house?

I love the eclectic feel of this one. I’d never have thought of putting books at the entry, but for book-lovers (which we are) who like to have books around, it would be a perfect tie-in for the rest of the home. I also think that black globe is fantastic, and I like that little stool a lot too.

Such a nice vignette of beautiful lamps with paperwhites.

This isn’t really an entrance, but I love the colors, the fabric on the chair and the golden accent that the lamp base adds.

I love this one a lot too – it is more subdued but also has that vintage, collected feel.

Also, I am guest posting on Geeky & Sassy today for Virginia’s Trendy Tuesday series. You’re invited to read about my love of personal style and eclectic spaces here.

Hope you’re having a great week so far!
