Dream Home: Styled Entryway

I've been living in NYC for nearly two years and have been blessed to not have to deal with moving (yet). While there are some really great things about my current apartment like its overall size, a VERY large balcony, great location, an open layout & non-white walls, there are also some downsides like my closet-sized bedroom, not to mention there being only one large-ish closet for four people. 

Another thing I lament is not having a true entryway to style. My roommates have given me pretty free reign over all design and decoration, and while we have a long hallway upon entering (that I will be slowly turning into a gallery wall over the course of the summer), the door also immediately opens into our kitchen and living room. I wish there were room for a small table or some arrangement of chairs, but instead I'm drawing inspiration from other entryways and adding it to my lust list for my next place! I love the juxtaposition of chevron bricks with a velvet couch, or clean white walls with dark wood, tall windows & doors. What's on your home lust list?

  1. I feel you! I think it's pretty rare to have any real space for an entry in NYC....space is too precious. A gallery wall is a great way to add interest though. I can't wait to see yours! xo
