The Entryway!

This week Kelly at Kelly's Korner is hosting "Show Us Where You Live Fridays." Entryways are featured and this happens to be one of my favorite parts of my house. Actually this entryway is what sold us on this style house rather than the other two we were offered.

This is the chaise lounge we have in our entryway. I got this when I moved into my first apartment. When we moved into the house we had no idea what to do with it. We didn't really have room for it in the living room or our bedroom and I just couldn't get rid of it. I LOVE it. My mother-in-law suggested that we move it into the entryway. At the time I was looking for a bench to place in this space. So Daniel and I moved it into the entry and loved the way it looked in there.

Here's the view from the front door.

A view of our front door. I made the wreath. Its not great but I love it and nothing says summer to me like sunflowers.

I found theses mirrors at Hobby Lobby for 66% off the price. I picked up two of them to put above the chaise. I love the arched look.

I found this candle holder at a flea market for $20. I change the garland around it with the seasons.

This is the ledge that we have in our entryway. I change the decorations to fit the season. The pictures stay the same for now. They will change out eventually. Right now they are some of my favorites from our wedding. I use these red candle holders for multiple seasons. I used them on my mantle for Valentine's Day decorations. For Christmas I have used them on both this ledge and on the mantle. They were on sale when I bought them from Kirkland's.

This is the view from my living room. The door on the left in a coat closet and the open doorway on the right side of the picture is one of the other bedrooms.

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of my entryway. Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. I love the very first picture. That is gorgeous!! I want to have a chair thing like that in my bedroom. I really like your photo collage.

  2. Wow! What a great entryway! It's very warm and welcoming! :-)

  3. You have a great looking home (from what I saw from the foyer :o) I'll have to go see what you're other rooms look like. I like all the black frames. They're all black at my house, except maybe 2!
