Entry Makeover

"Home is where your story begins."

As I have mentioned, I am in the process of tweaking our home {yet again!}.  Our entry was painted last year a nice, moody shade of gray.  I like the color but am feeling a change is needed [sorry, Andrew].  I painted our living room last year and have become smitten with Benjamin Moore Ionic Column.  It is an off-white color with some warmth.  It completely brightened up the space and created the perfect blank canvas for art and layering.

As is the norm in Texas [things really are bigger here], our welcome area has sky high ceilings and a spiral staircase.  It is all smoke and mirrors though.  The actual floor space is actually quite small.  We have a teeny tiny sitting area on the backside of the stairs. I found an oval ottoman that fits nicely in the curve and has a banquette feel when loaded with pillows.  

This tufted fella is being sent off to the upholsterers for a makeover.  I chose this hot leopard fabric and ordered these pillows so far. I am really feeling royal blue accents lately and love how it pairs with an animal print.

These are several goodies I would like to add to the mix.  

Have the best weekend ever!
