Our front entry is actually a hallway. When we were house hunting, a huge entry was on my list but the houses with huge entryways were short on other details that
we I desired. In the end, a big kitchen won out over a huge entry!
The battle to design the entry is ongoing, as you well know.
I recently came upon a stunning pair of Louis XV fauteuils with chocolate colored velvet upholstery on Craigslist for a steal!
They truly complete this vignette!
The awkward wall angle makes it difficult to get a perfect photograph!
The gold coronas in my Craigslist urns are the crowning glory!
I found the crowns on one of my favorite sites, The Kings Bay. They also sell on ebay as purblebombauctions.
The crowns are made to hang from the ceiling and have clips to hold photos and mementos below.
However, I only saw this...a golden crown on par with those I covet from Tara Shaw, though at prices that would allow me to stay married!
I never thought I would see the day that I was actually happy with the entryway!
I absolutely love this composition! The chocolate brown of the upholstery is very soothing against the grey and gold, as well as the aged silver patina of the urns. The deep, rich brown brings out the rust tones in the aged iron urns.
I feel as if my decorating has evolved since I started this blog, thanks to the inspiration and valuable input I receive from my blogmates. I have learned so much on this journey!
Thanks to all of you for helping me to make my house a home!
Your friendship is truly the crowning touch!
