Entrance Makeover - Before and After

Creating Zones
 The main room will be used as a living / dining and entrance room so I wanted to divide the space into these three areas creating different zones. The first being the entrance!

When we first moved in we had to have a lot of work done on the walls in the lounge due to damp, there was also a really ugly leaking radiator but we thought we could fix it and repaint and cover with a radiator cover to create a little welcome area.We didn't want a regular cover so we designed our own and George made it up, we decided on white wood with an oak top to contrast against the light grey walls.

Accessories play a big part in creating a unique space and I feel help to divide the room. I really love this print which I found on Etsy as a digital download I just printed and framed in a metallic frame to enhance the silver design. I found the blue mirror at a car boot sale along with the vintage letter stand and hanging hearts. The alphabet hooks were super cheap and are great for our coats ect. The oversized 'notes' peg is perfect to have near the door to clip little reminders! 
The Wild and wolf lobby phone was a birthday present and I just think it is the most beautiful telephone I have ever seen! I think it works well on top of the vintage stool which I painted in a bright yellow to add a pop of colour.

I love to have flowers around the house it really brightens up the place and brings the outside in. These Gladioli flowers are perfect for the entrance as they fit neatly in the little nook and the white flower works well with the colour palette.

I found this welcome mat at Tiger for only £5 It is super cute and makes people smile as they enter.
I really love this area and am really happy with how the whole room is working together with its different little areas.
What do you think?
