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!
Sponsored by At Home // Our entryway is probably one of the hardest working areas of our home, next to the kitchen. Right now it’s full of jackets in every shape and size and muddy boots coming in from the field and ball caps from sports practices and a million other miscellaneous items that don’t belong here, but the entryway seems to be the perfect place to drop everything when we walk in the door. So this week I took some time to clean things up a bit and add a few new pieces to the entryway to help keep things organized and of course, looking pretty. This IS the first space I see when I come home to our little farmhouse… I want it to make me smile!
Our living room and dining room are the first spaces you see when you walk into our farmhouse, and while I do love a lot of the things we’ve done in these rooms, I’ve always only been about 90% happy with either space. These two rooms have been tough for me to design and decorate for some reason. Our living room is open to the dining room, kitchen and front hallway, so we have a lot of traffic coming through this space. Plus we also have baseboard heaters on a few walls and a big picture window that makes furniture placement challenging. And then our dining room happens to also be our entryway, since we use this exterior door to come and go instead of the main front door. Unfortunately this space is pretty tight and narrow, and for the last few years I’ve tried to cram our large farmhouse dining table AND space for entryway storage in here. We made it work for a few years, but this summer I started playing around with the furniture placement and LOVE the way this space flows now. Welcome to our new entryway!
