At Home: EntryWay Update!

After taking care of some big renovation projects, I decided to tackle a smaller area this summer and fall.  Our entryway!  It needed some freshening!

It involved this:

A beautiful shade of yellow, inspired by Young House Love.  It is bright and vibrant and just glows!
It covered up my black front door.  Here are some before shots:


Before, the door was painted black.  Our stair railing was a light oak and the stairs were painted with a tan color.  The old runner had loads of use with the previous owner so it was in rough shape.
I had my gallery wall and my entryway table, plus the new tile on the floor.  But the runner was old with a floral pattern.  It was very pretty, but I wanted a new look! Here is what it looks like now.


The door adds so much life to the space!  It looks fantastic from the outside too!  I painted that little table with the lamp a turquoise blue to accent the black and yellow.  It adds a punch of color!

I added a geometric print to the stairs, black and white diamonds.  It was inspired from Pinterest, of course.  All of the ones I saw on Pinterest involved outdoor carpet, but I wanted something more lasting and sturdy!  I found this beauty and was hooked.  The space looks cleaner now!

I painted the old oak railing black to give it a more modern feel.  It really changed the space immediately!

Here is a close up of the stair runner.  It looks bold and graphic and welcoming!  I love when a space comes together!
