Decorating ideas for 2011

As we enter a new year I thought it fitting to focus on the entrance to the home! I have listed some inspirational resources, one of my favorite places to search for unique items is Etsy. I will keep you posted, soon I will have my own vintage product line for sale on Etsy!

1.) Be whimsical. Paint a mural on your wall.

2.)  Paint the inside doorjamb a different color. Look for different, pretty vases for flowers.

I love the refreshingly simple, modern style of this handmade vase by German pottery designer Tania Julian $28.00 Etsy

3.) Stripe it! Give your hall a zing. I like the way the paper was used in two different directions here.

4.) Who say’s a banister has to be one color? Be playful.

5.) Sisal rugs are great for the entry, super hardy.
