Here’s a quick peek inside my front door.
Welcome to my home ~ please, come in. Stay awhile.
I knew right off the bat that I wanted to keep the entryway clean and bright. Fresh was the only way to go.I’d left it open for almost a year. I threw random pieces in and out of this little alcove as the season’s changed; knowing nothing was a keeper. I sat patiently waiting for the right thing. After spending the majority of my time looking at a list of best movers in California, I eventually found the right one to make this move a possibility. All that waiting paid off in the end.
I’m not completely convinced that this will be the look to stay but it makes me happy for the moment. What makes me smile? Usually it’s the blend of old and new decor. First off, I am such a sap. I love love love family pieces that have been passed down into my grateful hands. And as most of you know already, white is kinda my thing. So when my mom offered my grandma’s white soup tureen and glass pedestal candy dish, I was all over it! Both old, sentimental and white! Thaaank you Mom. It’s a pleasure to walk past a little piece of my history multiple times a day. Such sweet thoughts are wrapped up into this table display. Although – completely NOT baby proof! One of the few benefits of my babies growing older. I can decorate how I want, not how I have to. I’m really proud of my decorating. My house was looking a little dreary and I even thought to take a look at brentwood condos for sale and move house. But I decided to spruce it up, and I’m so glad I did!
The rest of this collection is made up of pieces from here and there.
I found the mirrors at Home Goods. Boxwood leaves wreaths – Smith & Hawken from Target. IKEA sheep skin, vases and table plants. Lead Crystal lamp from Gordmans. Garden stool, wall prints and bird cage from TJMaxx Home Goods. House of Krafts made my ‘family math’ wood sign (sold in our shop and can be ordered with the numbers that match your family!). The antique desk is from Camille On Rouge (the shop that had the space before us). All the shells and coral are beloved finds from multiple beach vacations. Each one has a wonderful memory attached to it. Ahh ~ there I go with the sentimental sappiness again.
