Since becoming a homeowner in February, I’ve been exercising my freedom to decorate any way I want. Some might say I’ve been over-exercising that freedom, but I have no plans to stop. I wanted to share the latest not-so-subtle touch I’ve added, because I know you love patterns—otherwise you wouldn’t be here, right?
Our entryway is a tiny space, about 5’ wide by 4’ deep. It’s also the first room any guests will encounter, so I wanted it to be noteworthy. Is it safe to say my mission has been accomplished?
I used wallpaper from Spoonflower, printed with this gorgeous black and white “Feathers" design by cherii.
This was my first experience hanging patterned, floor-to-ceiling wallpaper; I recently put up beadboard wallpaper in my dining room, but that’s another story, for another
day blog. I love that the Spoonflower wallpaper is self-adhesive - basically, you just soak it in water and apply. Because the space was tight, with lots of doorways and tiny slivers of wall to work around, it was a slow process. But, it was absolutely worth it in the end—I couldn’t be happier with the results!
The coat hooks, for those who are curious, are from Target. Select stores are carrying a line of wall decor items by Young House Love, like the mix-and-match, pre-drilled board and hook set you see in the photo above. The board comes unfinished, so you can paint or stain it to match your existing decor. I promise this is not a paid endorsement; I just thought these products were fun and affordable, and worth mentioning in case you’d like your own :)
I still can’t believe they stuffed a coat closet into this space. At some point, it was converted into the “HVAC ductwork closet,” hence the need for coat hooks. No doubt central heating and air is worth the sacrifice.
Thanks for indulging me in a little domestic show-and-tell. See you again on Monday!
