#projectindianroad Part #3 - The Entry

I can't believe it's Friday already, this week flew by like no ones business!

The final space I'm working on for  #projectindianroad is the entry.

This space is tiny & there is no closet for this family of 4. I needed to come up with storage solutions & create a welcoming area for the homeowners on a daily basis & their guests.

Here is what we're dealing with.

I came up with this design.

First & foremost I'm suggesting that the existing carpeting on the stairs be removed & have the entire staircase be painted in a combination of my go to black (Benjamin Moore Midnight Dream) & white (Benjamin Moore Oxford White). The walls will be painted in the same warm white, Benjamin Moore Dune White, as the living room. I would also love to see the interior side of the front door also be painted in Midnight Dream. 

I love the idea of a black & white galley wall on the long wall leading into the kitchen. All of the frames are to be the same size & hung in a grid pattern. I believe they have more impact & look much tidier arranged like this, especially in a tight space.

A colourful overdyed rug from Rugs USA will ground this pint sized traffic zone & cleaver shoe storage cabinet from IKEA will be able to house up to 18 pairs of shoes & not take up much room. 

Do you have a tiny entry? How did you deal with the space & storage?
I'd love to hear you ideas.

  1. Well, that foyer definitely needs a make-over. I like your color suggestions a gallery wall would be a great focal point to that empty wall.


Thanks for reading. I enjoy your feedback.
