This last week has been a whirlwind of activity for us.
The entry hall is almost complete, a few finishing touches and it is done. I am beyond happy with the results and it has surpassed my expectations.
Before we ever moved into our new home the entry hall was one of the first areas I wanted to address.
The entry to your home is so important, it is the greeting your guest will see first so it should be welcoming, and an introduction to what they are about to see and experience in your home.
It is always hard to leave your vision in someone else's hands, but I truly found a wonderful contractor that listened and understood the look I wanted.
This is how our entry started out.....
It is a small space measuring 53 X 93in. Luckily we have a little window in the door so we get some light otherwise it would be like a dark closet and this girl has to have light. If I don't have natural light I will provide the area with artificial light.
Here is the space as the carpenter is doing his thing!!
I knew exactly what I wanted so we taped out the design for the contractor to see. Proportions were and ARE so important and I knew I had to get this right.....
We have 10ft ceilings and the plan was to panel the entire wall from floor to ceiling.
Every single wall has a paneled treatment. My poor husband hung that picture 4 different times until we had it right. Remember proportions have to be right.
You can see in this picture that the panels are starting to go up. With each step I became more and more excited.
All the doorways were wrapped and cased. The rounded edging that is used in this home is perfectly lovely, but this girl loves molding, and the finished look it gives to a room.
With every piece of molding that was applied my vision became a reality........
Even the smallest slice of wall was addressed. I wasn't sure this would look right since it is so small and I am all about proportions, however my contractor reassured me ...
