This area is where all of Laura & Marty’s guest enter their home. They wanted it to truly reflect their personality. We added custom window treatments to help finish their already fully furnished dining room, but the double story entry way was lacking and needed something to create a statement. Sometimes the best solution is right under your nose–or, in this case, under our feet (stored in their basement).
Laura had a unique collection of antique wood bread and baking bowls, driftwood, and framed art which she had collected over many years–they truly were things that she loved, however, she just didn’t know where to use them in their new house. Instead of going shopping at retail stores for new stuff, or having a specialty painter create custom wall decor, we opted for what was already in hand. These items had been used in multiple places in their prior home, but never as a cohesive collage. With the help of Distinctive Interior Designs’ hanging service, Nicole helped them create a perfectly balanced combination of shapes, textures, and color.
The end result not only fills up the previously very empty entry wall, but, also, combines all the things Laura loves!
