I wasn't planning on linking up to the Roomspiration blog hop & link party except for a couple of the days, but I found myself looking at today's links of people's entryways and getting jealous. So I thought I'd make a quick post about my entryway. It needs help.
We live in a split-level house, which means when you walk in the front door you either take the stairs up to the main, currently-finished level, or take the stairs down to the basement, not-finished-yet level. It's a really neat idea (looking out the windows we're above ground-level), but not really any space for a true "entryway."
I've debated for awhile what (if anything) to do on that wall with the banister. We have a coat closet at the top of the stairs, so there really isn't a need for a place to hang coats. I've thought about putting a mini-bench in the space on the tile/rug against that wall (where a few pairs of sandals tend to hang out), but it's so narrow, and we keep all our shoes in the coat closet too and just sit on the stairs to put them on.
The only thing I've done so far is to hang a little plaque we got as a house-warming gift, and a couple pictures of our family (really really outdated pictures...)
From the outside, I've done quite a bit with landscaping and flowers around the front of the house (please ignore the almost-dead hanging plant). We've put a few pumpkins on the steps in the fall. And recently I've debated painting the front door...
So there you have it. Our boring entryway. Any ideas? What would you do if this was YOUR entryway??
