Today I thought I would share with you the little shake up of my entrance I completed this morning.
The entrance of my house can look quite dark despite a large glass door. The reason stems from the fact our bedrooms sit off this main hallway. As Master C is now mobile I need to keep the doors closed, reducing the light to the hall.
I decided that a little shifting of wall hangings in this area would help until we can again keep our doors open. Take a look at what was here before.
As you enter the house I had a canvas print hung.
Then on the other side of the double doors to the study sits our hall table and some more canvas prints.
I had quite fancied putting a canvas print gallery in our living room, so I removed the prints I had hung here for that project.
I scored a large square Ribba frame in the clearance section of Ikea some time ago. It has a great aluminum finish. I hung this at the front door and unsure of what I wanted to put in it, I have settled for the moment on some left over scrapbooking paper from my command centre project.
I purchased a large round bevelled mirror to sit above the hall table to help reflect the light in the area. It has also given me a spot to check my hair and make-up before I step out the door.
Overall I think removing the canvas prints has made the area less busy and the mirror and aluminum finish frame has helped lighten the area.
