I recently purchased a house that was tragically stuck in the 80’s! One of the worst examples was in the entrance way. Considering this area is the first impression one sees of the home, it is important that it is warm, welcoming and sets the tone for the rest of the house.
The front door was the first task at hand. My mom and aunt suggested a glass french door. Major, major improvement!! It is bright and airy during the day and exudes a soft glow at night that looks so inviting. Since my doorway is covered I was able to use an interior French door from Lowe’s which cut way down on the cost! I decided to keep the existing grasscloth wallpaper since wallpaper has made a major comeback and it also provides nice texture. An antique wrought iron console that I already had, a new lamp from Pier One (under $100), cut green tropical foliage from my yard and Voila!! An entrance hall to be proud of!
