Entree Vous

I’m pretty sure the above is french for “look at this cute place where I throw my mail and hang up my purse!” Right? Right. I’ve been futzing a bit my wee little space – covering my door with chalkboard paint, replacing hooks, opting for the ubiquitous floating Ikea LACK shelves.

That’s a Yoshitomo Nara print and a plastic
skull that I painted with left over chalkboard paint.
Obviously, Putin wanted to be in every picture.
Sadly, I could not could not convince him to wear his vest
As I’ve been futzing, I’ve been slowly accruing a big old folder of gorgeous, inspiring entryways. Let’s drool over them, shall we?
Sex Pistols poster + blue bean bags + spray painted
sticks = awesome!
Don’t you love this incredibly literal interpretation of
“coat tree”?
I love all these mix and matched hooks. And how
cute is that duck?!
Slightly creepy? Yes. Awesome? Also yes.
This appeals to my minimalist Virgo side. Also my
plastic-robot-loving side.
So lady like!
Glossy and red is always a win, isn’t it?

Do you do anything special with your entry way?

I love your place! writer extraordinaire AND interior designer. Me = tres jealous. But in a happy way πŸ™‚ Duck hooks, small robots, hands coming out of walls… who else could make it all look so chic?

Now I'm seriously tempted to attempt casting my own hand-hooks. Creepy but awesome.

Oh and Putin is adorable!

Lovely photos! I love the owl umbrella stand. I saw that online somewhere, but, too rich for my blood πŸ™

One thing I do is we have a small tiered standing shelf right by our door. One level houses a cool picture, one a lamp, but my favorite level houses a gorgeous painted dish full of my many, many sunglasses πŸ™‚ It keeps them tidy, I always know where they are, and it's sort of art on its own! I got the idea from something I read on Jackie O once, and it's always a conversation piece πŸ™‚

Those blue bean bags are perfection!! Want, want, want, making the grabby hands.
Your place is really cute, and Putin is too! Although if he is going to be a model he really should be wearing his vest.

Well, if I had an entry way I'd have to think about what I wanted to do with it. Lucky for me (ha!), my home just opens right into the living room. I like the last two entry ways the best.
