So many changes have been made to our little farmhouse since last Christmas, and it’s been both a challenge and a joy to have a new, fresh space to decorate this year for the holidays. One of my favorite little areas in our home is the entryway, complete with an antique armoire and mirror, coat hooks and a sweet, little bench, and the front door of my dreams. I recently partnered with Gordmans to create a festive, yet simple entryway for the holidays, and I am so excited to show you how this space turned out!
Since we don’t have a fireplace in this house, I decided to hang some of our stockings (which I made out of white burlap a few years ago) on the coat hooks. I set out a couple adorable Christmas throw pillows from Gordmans on the bench and hung a simple flocked wreath with pinecones on the front door. Those pillows were less than $18, and I just love them!
I had a Gordmas store close to me when we lived back in Illinois, and I used to shop there all the time. They have so many different types of items from home decor, to kitchen supplies, to clothes, shoes and more, and the prices are always super affordable. I was thrilled to find one only about an hour away from me here in Indiana! I could have walked through the aisles all day, especially now that they have all their holiday decor out.
Just to the right of the coat hooks sits my antique armoire, and I always have a little too much fun decorating this piece for the holidays. I went with a simple winter white and green theme this year, filling the shelves with fuzzy white pillows, a soft knit blanket, stacks of presents wrapped simply in white paper and twine, and a forest of white porcelain trees I found at Gordmans. I hung a lush evergreen wreath on the open cabinet door and placed a snow-covered evergreen garland, also from Gordmans, across the top of the armoire. I love all the different shapes and textures in this little vignette, and since I stayed away from classic Christmas reds, I can keep the armoire this way all winter long if I want to!
Even the littlest changes can make a big impact in a small space like this, and I try to make our entryway feel extra cozy and inviting during the holidays since this is the first thing our friends and family see when they visit the farmhouse. What do you guys think… would you want to hang out and drink some hot cocoa with me here?
