I am so thrilled and honored to be participating in my third home tour hosted by my friend, sweet Mama-to-Be Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Company. She has assembled a first-rate group of bloggers that I am so privileged to be a part of. Thank you Lindsay! Did you catch all of the tours yesterday? They were all crazy good! This week is so much fun and I'm looking forward to seeing what all of the other favorite rooms are too. If you're continuing on the tour today from This, That, and Life, or any of the other blogs, Welcome! I'm so happy that you're here.
But before I give you all the details, let's start from outside the Entry. As an extension of our Entry, I also love our front porch. I'm so thankful that the previous owner chose to use brick on the porch. I buy 2 massive ferns from Lowe's every Spring, and they're worth every penny. For whatever reason, they thrive in this spot and make a dramatic statement framing the front door.
After seeing Amy's cute front door makeover, I remembered that I had a wood monogram I could use on the porch (it didn't show up well on my front door with the glass so I hung it with a ribbon from the light), and she reminded me of an idea that I've had pinned forever to paint just the inside edge of a door with a pop of color for a little surprise. Huh, that color just happened to be green for me...surprised? ;)
We very recently repainted all of our living area to a lighter, brighter color (BM Manchester Tan at 25%). Putting everything back where it belonged brought a good opportunity to change things up just a little bit.
If you've seen my Entry before, it's still similar, but I think the paint color makes such a huge difference, not to mention the new mirror! Since the mirror is so large, I had to find a new home for the free antlers, but they'll still have a home somewhere.
I've furnished this area almost entirely with second hand finds and budget friendly items. The dresser, chippendale chair, and most recently the mirror are all Craigslist bargains. The lamps were from a thrift store and got a makeover, and the blue and white pieces are from Ross.
So there you go! That's my current favorite... today. My Dining Room is a close second, my Breakfast Nook comes in at third, and I would love for you to check out my entire home tour here!
