A couple of years ago, I was struggling with the furniture we had- none of it was very high quality or working for the look I wanted our home to have. The reason for this was because when we first moved in, not only did I not know my personal style yet, but I thought we had to fill our house with furniture as soon as possible for it to feel like a home. We went to the nearest big box store, bought a set, and called it good. If you are in the beginning stages of decorating a home, please, please do not make the same mistake I did! Take your time with your purchases- like years, if that’s what it takes! Pick things that speak to you and your style. And most of all, make sure you love every little thing you buy and bring into your home! Hopefully, this mindset will mean you won’t grow tired of your things after a short while like I did. So, I decided to list most of it on Craigslist and start fresh. I also don’t really suggest doing that. It meant our entryway has been void of furniture and decor since!
The other day, I was in a thrift store and found an amazing gem that would be the heart of the space. It is a midcentury styled desk that needed some love, so of course I added that to the honey do list and made Chase go with me to pick the desk up! We are in the process of painting it with chalk paint and then topping with a high gloss lacquer. I am SO excited to get the space pulled together! Here are a few pictures to show my inspiration, as well as some items I’m thinking would be perfect for a midcentury styled entryway.
Key Items: a mid century style desk, a basket to throw extra blankets in, a geometric lamp, a vase with greenery, an antler bowl to catch keys and change, a vintage style rug, and an inspirational style book
What do you think of this combo? Am I missing any key items?
