Our New Farmhouse Entryway

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!
