Rene at one of my favorite blogs, Cottage & Vine has invited me to guest post on my favorite room in the house...I am so thrilled to be included in her "Favorite Room" series. I actually had not even thought about what my favorite room is until I received her email. It took me about two seconds to decide that it's my entryway. Here's what I love about it . . . Both my front door and entry from the garage converge into the same space, so everyone drops their stuff in one spot. Which is actually kind of perfect because you only have to have one space to organize and everyone knows exactly where they can find their backpack, jacket, shoes, keys...whatever it is they are looking for...there's a space designed for it.
|But first...my entryway begins outside...I adore herringbone so we added the brick, the lighting is by Bevolo as well as the mailbox. Lighting is like the icing on the cake...it has to be perfect. I wrote more about it here.|
|We use white religious candles to line the walkway and the steps whenever we have guests...It always makes people feel welcome.|
|One thing in a small house that is very important is to have a place for everything. I knew we needed a space for cell phones, keys etc. and this little cubby was the perfect solution to avoid having it all end up on the kitchen counter.|
|Fourth of July is a really big deal in our neighborhood...there's a parade, a bluff BBQ, sand castle contest and our house is on the path that everyone sees...so we have a lot of flags and a lot of red, white and blue.|
|So come on in . . . the door's wide open! Thank you Rene!|
