I'm so excited to show you my entry finally complete! I think this space really reflects my love for Finnish/Nordic design with a good dose of Marimekko along with some Artek, Muuto and even a vintage chair from Finland. I feel like I really got spoiled with this space. I ended up with many of the pieces I chose initially for my inspiration board and it is so nice to see it come together in our home. Tech Guy liked it so much that he wants the rest of the house to have the same feel. So, without further ado, here it is:
I thought I'd show you the details from top to bottom. I was so excited to be able to get this Aalto A330s pendant for a super deal. My friend Jenny let me know about a floor model sale that was going on at Mjolk.
I ended up going with Muuto Dots coat hooks in four different colours/finishes. I did end up adding one pink on for the sole lady in the house. :) I also like that they are large enough to stand out in front of the Marimekko Ruutukaava wallpaper.
You've already seen my DIY artwork (you can download a copy for yourself here). It's hanging over a couple of shoe storage boxes that have been super handy. I've been storing sunscreen, the boys' hats, etc. in the top drawer and their shoes in the bottom. I can see it being a great spot for hats and mitts in the winter too. The top of the boxes also worked really well to corral keys, sunglasses, etc. I used a small gold tray for keys and loose change and love how the geometric vase goes with my print.
The chair in the space was my sister's when she was little. My parents brought it with us when we moved to Canada. It's petite size and airiness of the spindles was perfect in this small entry. I didn't take a good picture of our entry tile, but we did it when we first moved in three years ago. It's grey stone tile that was laid in a running bond pattern with a border of marble mosaic (also in shades of grey and white).
Here's one last look of the entry. It gives you a sense of how small it really is. The door will need to be replaced soon. It sticks like crazy, is not very weather tight and has weird wavy/tubular/frosted glass.
That's our new entry. Now I can't wait to finish our kitchen reno!
There are a lot of pictures in this post, so I will be back with another listing all the sources for this space. I would like to thank Wallpaper Direct for kindly providing the wallpaper for this space.
