Ah, I love a good before and after photo comparison. It’s just so satisfying! Granted, I don’t even know if you can call our entryway remodel a true “remodel.” I didn’t do that much to it, but doesn’t it just seem so different? And better! I guess it just goes to show that the smallest design decisions can make a huge difference in the look and feel of a space.
It’s been a while that I’ve been working on a whole “entryway remodel,” if you will. I put it in quotes because our “entryway” is just a tiny L-shaped space where the front door is. But that’s kind of why it’s imperative that the space is used as efficiently as possible, without sacrificing my aesthetic.
I’ve been tackling it in stages, firstly “retiling” with peel and stick tile, then we added railings to the stairs.I’ve been meaning to redo the stair runner also, but that’s gonna be a big project for later.
And now I’ve taken care of the shoe situation as well. Read all about my shoe cabinet makeover here!
Now, I know not everyone is gonna agree with my design choices here. There’s a lot going on! A lot of patterns, a lot of colours. But I love it! I think there’s a certain cohesiveness to the colour palette I chose. Lots of blues and blacks. And I do believe that black is a great neutral colour to compliment a more colourful vignette.
If I had to describe my design aesthetic, I’d call it “colourful, vintage eclectic.” And I think you really see why in this entryway. Right when you walk in our house, there’s a burst of colour, pattern, florals, with little vintage-inspired touches. This entryway is me to a tee! I just love it!
