Well Adorned Entry Before and After

Just completed this entryway this past week.  These before and after pictures are a true example of how scale can transform how a room can look.  If you have a giant wall in your entry, it is so important that you use the right scale accessories to make your home look fabulous. 
My clients often struggle with trying to find the perfect thing for their entries.  Just about every consultation I have with people is about using the right scale.  What happens so often is that they shop for items and keep shopping for items thinking they will look good when they get home, only to find out they aren't right when you place them in their intended spot.  After a while you have a collection of a whole bunch of things that say absolutely NOTHING.  Just like this entry above, all the items are beautiful individually but not for this large walled entry.
Now this entry has the right scale mirror, wall sconces and accessories and it immediately says 
COME ON IN with grandeur!
Color and beautiful texture.
Ready for a party! 
The stairs in the mirror are going to be painted to make them updated.
Sophisticated elegance.  Simplicity was key in this home   It had a "formal" feel to it previously when you walke in.  We wanted to make it gorgeous but also wanted it to add a relaxed, casual feel to it.  Makes it less intimidating and much more  "lived in" and comfortable vs. staged.
Loaded with personality and warmth.
(Wall sconces are from Restoration Hardware)
So much fun when my vision becomes a reality and the client is happy!
On to the design plan for Phase II of this project!  Need it ready by Thanksgiving!
