Entryway Before and After

(photo by Elise Abigail Randolph)
Our entryway is another big change in our house!  Honestly, I've never had an entryway before, so this was new territory for me.  Do I set up a gallery wall?  Do I paint the space?  It was basically a blank canvas and it wasn't until we had the wallpaper installed in the living room that I KNEW wallpaper would be the perfect first impression as you walk into our home!  Wanna see what it looked like before?  This one of my favorite before and after spaces!!

I found TONS of wallpaper I liked as I was searching, but just because you like something doesn't mean you can afford it.  Oof.  I found both of the wallpaper designs we used in the living room and the entryway at Wallpaper Direct.  A friend asked how I came to the decision for this bold selection, and honestly, it took me over a dozen wallpaper samples to settle on something.  You never completely know how it's going to look until it has been installed, so I'm EXTREMELY HAPPY with how this turned out!  Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and go with your gut!

I love the contrast of the teal door and table legs, and the peeks of teal in the other rooms with these colors!  I'm so glad I didn't shy away from the boldness of the pattern-- it makes such a difference in this room!  I'll be back soon with a better look at our dining room!  xo.
