Creating Timeless Living Interiors


This entryway / hallway design project is a real treat to share with you all. This home had beautiful bones with dark wood flooring and whitewashed walls throughout, and was just needing an injection of personality. The entryway to a home really sets the tone and style for the rest of home, so it’s an important one to get right. When  designing this space, the main goal was to create a warm, welcoming area in our Timeless Transitional style that compliments the modern farmhouse style found throughout the rest of the home. The client was looking for classic elements, with a farmhouse-style touch. They had already installed this beautiful crittal sliding door that leads from the immediate entryway through to a larger hallway. I like to start with an anchor piece in an entrway to give the area some substance and to increase function. In the smaller, immediate entryway we chose a vintage wooden bench, layered with cushions and throws to add pattern and warmth. The hallway is a larger space so we were able to fit this large wooden sideboard with a beautiful white marble top and weathered earl grey wood finish, aligning with the rustic farmhouse vibes elsewhere. I then grounded the space with a large vintage-style rug, which also adds a warm, textured element to the space. 

When it came to styling the sideboard I began by selecting a large antique bronze mirror to act as a balanced focal point to draw the eye in. I then layered in a large table lamp on the sideboard to illuminate the space and create a cosy, inviting atmosphere. Finally I added decorative details like candles in a wooden tray, greenery and books layered with a large wooden chain link atop!
