I’m helping some new clients decorate their home. It’s a new marriage for both and they’re starting from scratch with new furniture as part of a fresh start. One area we’re working on together is the entry, you can see the model home’s entry here. I’m steering them away from that bland look and encouraging them to opt for an oversized round mirror partnered with a stylish console table for their entry. I’ll have much more to share next month when they move in and the styling begins!
I saved these images for inspiration noting how the curved shape of a round mirror softens all the angles of the console table. Notice the styling of these images too, you’ll spy curved lamps, stacked books, decorative objects, baskets or ottomans with open leg consoles, and always the addition of a organic element in the form of fresh flowers or green plant stems. A console table is a good investment because it isn’t just restricted to the entry. It is such a versatile piece because it can be used behind a sofa or in a dining room and rotated around the house.
So many of my friends took off for the weekend on camping trips or destination getaways but I’m staying put with some work I need to wrap up at my desk. I’m making some final design choices for the flip house in the next few days and buying all the appliances because of the big weekend sales. On Monday I’m meeting my BFF from college for a round of wine tasting in Napa. I haven’t seen her in a few years so I’m really excited to connect with her again. College friends are the best!
Memorial Day Weekend is always the kickoff for summer and it couldn’t come fast enough for me this year because of all the rain we had in California. I’ve always preferred dressing in flip flops and tank tops over cold climate clothing so hooray for summer’s arrival! Favorite links from the week below:
