Now that I’ve shared my yellow front door with the world, it’s time to invite you into my entryway. Small steps. Don’t worry; we’ll get to the bedroom soon, but know that I don’t kiss on the first date. Usually. Back to my entryway, yes?
Hands down, the entryway is my favorite part of our home. It feels so very… us. Equal parts quirky and unexpected with touches of vintage and organic materials, our front hallway has caused quite a stir with guests, provoking a love/hate relationship almost immediately. And in my opinion? That is design. Good design always elicits a reaction, whether good or bad.
And in this case, I think it is very, very good. We’ve been collecting various hooks and vintage glass doorknobs for awhile now, and I was thrilled to finally have a chance to use them all. In fact, we ripped out a hall closet to expand the entryway’s width (you can see a bit of the before in this video right here!), so this quirky storage solution actually proves quite functional for dog leashes, hats, bags and the like.
And those whippet statues? We can’t bear to part with them. Our whippets (or are they greyhounds?) were one of our first joint purchases in Los Angeles, and I have a feeling they’ll stay with us forever. You can call them Harry and Maeve. We call them awesome.
And because I know you love me to reveal my shopping sources, here are a few places you can score the look. The rug is from DwellStudio, the bench is from Modani, the sheepskin rugs are IKEA and a few of the hooks are from Urban Outfitters. Happy shopping!
So, in case you can’t tell, I’m madly in love with our entryway. I feel instantly cheered when I walk in the front door, and I can’t wait to add a few more hooks of sentimental value with time.
