Make a Great First Impression: Entryway Inspiration


Is it sad that I found myself
thinking in hypothetical blog posts most of the day today?
I shouldn't be surprised.
I tend to be pretty extreme.
Take for instance the time I signed up to be a Mary Kay consultant.
I went so all out that I practically stopped eating and sleeping.
{I know. I have issues.}

Today I would like to talk entryways.
Mine needs some help I've decided.

This is not my entry. I wish it was.
I love how bright and fresh this entryway looks. 
Pretty sure I need a pretty rug to freshen our entry up!

I always like these coat rack/bench combos (whatever they are called... it's after 8pm people, my brain is shutting down by now if you recall from an earlier post).
I also like the idea of having a mirror in our entry.
I'll need to add that to my idea list.

I'm always a fan of a fun wall collage...

Be still my beating heart.
I ADORE this wall!
Hmmm... is wallpaper, or perhaps wall stenciling in my future?

There are so many things to love about this entry...
a clever spot to hang coats and bags,
hanging plates (I'm kinda obsessed with these right now),
personal matted picture arrangement,
super fun pillows,
the list goes on and on...

Light, airy, refreshing, organized.
Love it.

Well, plenty of inspiration abounds.
Now, something MUST be done about this drab entry:
I'll keep you posted as I makeover our entryway!

There you have it. I'd love to hear from you
if you've been inspired to do a little sprucing up
of your own entryway.

Speaking of inspired, my little sister Erin
over at Living in Yellow
has inspired me to run another half-marathon.
We were supposed to run today,
but she bailed on me.
She had a massage to go to instead.
This, I suppose, is why she's "living in yellow."
She has massages to go to.
Just thought I'd point that out... love you sis!

Happy nesting!
