I recently purchased a new table for my entryway, I had a large classic buffet that I loved (you can see it Here), but I was ready for a change after it graced my entry for the last 7 or 8 yrs. I came across this console table from Ballard Designs and fell in love. Its open, airy feel, and long, narrow dimensions were perfect for my entry way. Still I couldn’t help but be a little nervous that I would have a hard time creating a vignette that I love.
My new table is a touch rustic, I wanted to counter that with a little bit of sophistication. I started with my Dear lillie Chalkboard print. Last yr I fell in love with her hand painted sign, but I was a little slow and it sold out. So I bought the download Here, I found a huge mirror on sale for I think $30 (purchase last yr from Taipan trading) I sprayed it with chalkboard paint. Then I had my friend print the download in gold vinyl. The entire project was less than $50, I love the end result so much, I’m almost glad the hand painted signs were sold out (almost).
This fabulous brass and crystal lamp was a birthday present (ok, I totally picked it out) it is such a stunner in person! I just purchased it in October but it’s no longer available (BOO!) you can find a similar one Here.
Black and gold seems to be my favorite combo this Christmas season, it has such an elegant feel. I loved how the office turned out so much I wanted to carry the same look into the entry way. You can find a tutorial on how to recreate this tree a few posts back.
Simple and elegant was the goal, using gift boxes in my decor, and adding wrapping paper as book covers to vintage books was a cheap and easy way to bring the holidays to this space. Target is killing it in the gift wrap department this yr! You can find the box Here and the wrapping paper Here. The Greek Key ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
I used a gold tray found on clearance at Pottery barn as a boot tray, you can find a similar tray Here,who says it has to be a boot tray? Why not use a tray that can be used somewhere else later :)? The metal presents were purchased yrs ago and repainted silver and gold. You can find the stool Here, and similar rain boots Here. The bust can be used all yr round as well, paired with some cypress trees (purchased last yr at Pier One Imports) and a gold orb, I think she’s bringing a little Christmas cheer.
I asked my sister what she thinks and she said it’s not super “Christmassy” (she loves it though) we decided that’s a good thing. Rather than screaming Christmas, it “whispers” Christmas. Lol, totally my sisters words, we might be dorks ;)!
I’ve included some links for a few more similar items below, but I’m hoping you’re inspired to look around and use what you have on hand to create your style this yr!
