Hello there! Well, things are definitely slowing down around here. I'm about 8 weeks out from meeting Baby #4 and needlesstosday, I'm not embarking on any decorating projects these days. I can hardly get through the day without a nap lately! Most of my nesting comes in the form of cleaning or organizing as I know if I don't get to it now... who knows when I'll have the time!
For today, I thought I'd share some pictures of our entry way console table. In my opinion, entry ways are one of the most important areas in a home. I can't tell you how many times I pass by this table each day and it's such a great place to create a special little moment of items you truly treasure and make you smile. Remember... elevate the everyday!
This first photo is kind of a "before" photo. Not a bad arrangement, lots of things that make me smile. My lovely gourd lamp, my favorite houseplant - maidenhair ferns, a painting by my grandmother that we used for our wedding, and a pair of Foo dogs given to us as a wedding present.
Here's how it looks right now.
Just removed the fern and added a few family photos.
I love the runner I added. It gives the table a little more depth. I love Dwellstudio, but can't afford most of their items. This "runner" is just 2 napkins (on sale) that I folded in half and place side by side.
I also love my little ikat bowl from Anthropologie.
Kind of bummed I didn't buy more as they are now discontinued. :(
So, not a huge deal. Just thought I'd share a little moment from our entry. When the rest of the house is a complete mess, this is a nice place for me to find some peace... if just for a moment. :)
How are you capturing the little nooks in your home? Does it make you smile or make you cringe? Here's a little article from Lonny with some great tips for styling an entry way table!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Oh and by the way... if anyone is curious. I had a great time being in a flash mob 2 weeks ago! It was so much fun. What I loved about is that it brought so many people together! About 800! It was not about any one individual, but a group of people doing something that brings them joy and hopefully the "audience" too. I loved doing it and disappearing into the sunset. They called us... dancing ninjas... now you see us, now you don't. :)
