[My Project Notebook]

(I always have a ton of decorating and DIY ideas floating around in my head. Many of them end up in my project notebook that I keep in my nightstand. I thought it would be fun if I shared some of my ideas with you all each week.)

So, if you saw my post about adding in my new settee, than you know that I've had entryway design on my mind lately.  Here are some ideas I kept in mind when updating my own area.


1.  A comfy place to sit.

2.  Open, airy and filled with light.

3.  Lots of storage and black painted furniture.

4.  An entry that blends well with the main living area.

5.  A mix of styles and textures.

  5. Your inspiration pictures are nice, but I think your entry way is much cozier now than any of these photos.

  6. Great idea to have a notebook bedside. That would help me with my racing mind. All gorgeous foyers and I know you'll come up with an amazing entry yourself.
