Get the Look! A Vibrant and Welcoming Entry

The entry is by far one of the most important parts of your home. It's a first impression and the last thing that your guests will see when they leave. Unfortunately, the entry is one space that is often forgotten when designing a home.

While currently searching for some entry ideas for a client, I decided to build a fun and vibrant entryway that you can replicate in your home, based off this adorable pink entry inspiration photo! 

I love the idea of hanging a mirror in an entryway so that you and your guests can have it to check their lipstick, put on coats or check hair when leaving or entering your house. Lamps create warmth to the space and either a beautiful rug or piece of upholstery (or both!) help to make the room cozy. A fabulous chandelier is a perfect way to give a little drama to the space but also, a traditional lantern is another option (which I adore!) 

Treat the entryway like another room in the house. Layer it, love it, and make it your own! Below are some of my favorite suggestions to create this look, which can be modified to fit your style! Be sure to click on the photo to get more details. 

Enjoy!

What the Flamingo??

I'm not sure when this happened, but gone are the days of the flamingo being anything but "tasteful" in the eyes of many.  For the longest time, this beautiful bird was mocked and taunted because someone decided to make little statues of him/her and put them in their front yard.  However, times have changed and it's time for this lovely pink bird to shine!

From flamingo pants, to flamingo cake toppers, everywhere I turn, there is something adorable, might I add, with a flamingo on it.  And how can you do anything but fall in love with those beautiful pink feathers and that stunning stature.

I officially hopped on the bandwagon weeks ago, when I saw the most adorable flamingo bridal shower posted on Instagram. The collaboration was with BHLDN and The House that Lars Built.  I was sold from that point on!

 If you want to see a whole lot of flamingo cuteness, be sure to go to,  The House That Lars Built  to see a bridal shower they did!  I am in love with the whole thing!
