Entries in hallway (9)
I would typically do a Flickr finds post today but I thought since I have some new photos of my own I would post those instead. It was a bit of a hectic week but once it calmed down I managed to get out and do some shopping. There was a fabric flea market in the Glebe that I dragged my boyfriend to yesterday morning and it was an absolute zoo. A big room PACKED with women grabbing at fabrics and yarn and buttons. My boyfriend was one of about 5 men in the place and he and the guys he would pass would joke about how nuts it was. It was hilarious. But I'm glad he came because he held my bags for me while I rummaged. :) Best part is I can't even sew. They do look cute in piles in my office though!
We then went to the Ottawa Antique Market since we were in the neighbourhood and stopped as I usually do at the section of antique rugs and kilims only to find out the seller was selling the kilims at half price! So I picked up an antique one...for $325!! I am absolutely in love with it. I am thinking it will go under the dining table I STILL haven't found, and if not I will find it a home somewhere.
The other day I started demolition for the new kitchen which included the removal of the only closet on the main floor (*GASP*). So I had to create a new landing strip at the back door which will be my new everyday entrance. I have to shrink the bathroom that is next to the new entrance and have a closet built but that will happen sometime after the kitchen renovation.
Ashley emailed looking for a bit 'o inspiration: "I was hoping you could do a post on entry halls. Right now my entry hall is beige and is in some serious need of change. Everything I keep finding is the outside entry, not interior. I can't seem to find much in the way of examples, but you guys are the experts ;)". Many people may overlook their entrance hall or just focus on it's function rather than the design but HELLO????, it's the first thing people see when they walk in your home. So I'm happy to hear Ashley wants to spice up her boring entry. Ashley, I hope these photos help you to banish the bland beige and spice things up. (Note: My favourites are above)
