If you follow along with me on Instagram, you have probably noticed that I have been in the very sloooowww process of revamping our entry way over the last couple of months. It doesn’t help matters that I keep starting new room projects before I finish what I have started. I sure hope I’m not the only one with design attention span disorder..
Ok, so before I jump into the final outcome, let me just show you what our entry way looked like before I got started (sorry, all I had was an old Christmas picture from several years ago):
This is what the room looks like today after I FINALLY finished:
We just love the way everything came together and lightened up the entry. I should have done this years ago! I was so attached to my leather wall because it about killed me to do that paint treatment 800 years ago but it was way past time to lighten up the small space and update it.
My whole entry way plan was pulled together by this awesome rug/carpet squares from FLOR Carpet Squares:
How amazing is that rug!!
I have been obsessed with FLOR carpet square rugs for years and am thrilled that they are sponsoring today’s post. If you look at the “before” picture above, you’ll see that I previously had a FLOR carpet square rug in my entry. That rug has lasted years at the entry and it has amazed me because of all of the traffic and beating it took. I wanted another one because they are so incredibly durable and the patterns are all so pretty. The best part is that they are inexpensive and they are perfect for those strange sized areas that it’s hard to find the right size rug.
The Spot On rug in turquoise was exactly what I wanted to pull the room together:
FLOR sent me the carpet squares and all I can say is that my jaw hit the floor when I unpacked the box and put the rug together. It is so bright and beautiful in person. I know that this rug will last us years.
The Spot On collection has 8 different colors and all of them are absolutely gorgeous!! Just look at these colors:
Oh yea! Someone has got to get that magenta color! I so wish I had a spot for it! Ha! “Spot” get it??
By the way, if you’re wondering how easy it is to put the squares together, they are a breeze. I put mine together in less than 20 minutes. FLOR sends these large adhesive circles that you use to attach the squares once you decide on the layout that you want. Once they’re all connected, as you can see, you cannot tell that they are carpet squares and those adhesives are like cement! If you’re not familiar with FLOR Carpet Squares, be sure and look around at everything they have. So many great ideas and choices!
As for the rest of the entry way, my mirrored console came from High Fashion Houston:
My new lamps are made by Uttermost and they are the Carolyn Kinder Rossa Lamps and it’s hard to tell in the photos but they are HUGE and they came from Lighting Direct here (I switched out shades because the ones that came with it were WAY to big):
Uttermost makes the most beautiful lamps and while they’re a little more expensive, they are worth every penny because they are just so beautiful.
The wallpaper is made by Candace Olson and the pattern number is ND7083.
You’ll notice that I only did an accent wall on the focal wall. I did a really pretty faux plaster treatment that was so easy to do on the walls throughout the rest of the space and I will share that technique next Monday for Paint It Monday.
Thanks so much guys for stopping by! Thank you to FLOR Carpet Squares for sponsoring today’s post and for my perfect new rug! You guys are awesome and thank you for coming up with such an amazing product!
