Welcome to my page!

From the beginning, you will see color throughout my posts. Today I invite you into the entryway for a little glimpse of my home where you will discover an eclectic fusion of styles and color.

This  1939 side-hall colonial originally had white siding and a white door. I decided to change the color of the outside to a pale yellow and for a soft but noticeable contrast, this blue door. The color of the door is somewhere between Marlboro Blue and Blue Hydrangea by Benjamin Moore

The Entryway
I love the effect of the blue against the yellow walls. The walls are American Cheese by Benjamin Moore, where it is described as a "happy yellow-orange". This side of the house gets less sunlight and this shade of yellow lights up the foyer during the day.


Ignore the runner going up the stairs - 10 years old, faded and well-worn it needs to be replaced. The bench is one of my favorite finds. The tiles drew me to it.


This mirror is one of my first consignment store purchases. I loved the unusual shape and this space needed a mirror and some curves!


Cactus from the local Trader Joe's where I shop often.




Another favorite, really good purchase from a trip to India - this multiple votive holder.





                                                       
I received flowers in this stunning royal blue vase from a dinner guest many years ago. It's a sizeable piece.



Well, I hope you have enjoyed this post. Over time, I shall elaborate on how this space fell into place and continues to evolve...stay tuned.

Thank you for stopping by; please do check back often.
