This was my first post about my entryway back in May of this year.
I live in a 1939 side-hall colonial which 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.
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!
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.
