{first impressions}

I have a problem friends.

My entryway is in a sad state.

I'm sure at some point in the last year I posted this photo of our "welcome to our home" space.

It was oh so lovely.

Now...

Not so much. And don't even think you're getting a photo. It is THAT bad.

You see...I'm working on phasing out our cottage style and moving toward a more mid-century modern vibe (much to my husband's delight) and that entryway definitely screamed...

"Bonjour! Bienvenue a ma maison mes amis!"

(I sure hope I got that right, or if I totally butchered the French language, that Mr. Hopkins, my high school French teacher, isn't reading this.)

The green table has been ushered into the garage for our yard sale and for now has been temporarily replaced by our black desk which is a great piece, but too large of a scale for the space.

So enter my dilemma. I need a cool new mid-century-ish danish-inspired piece to fill this space.

Here are a few photos I found while browsing flickr that have me inspired. Of course Rachel's home offers me constant eye candy...

This photo of Mandi's home seems to be everywhere, and for good reason! This little number would be adorable as an entryway piece...

This is such a calming vignette...

And I love the simplicity of these clip boards for display and organization...

This piece would be too big for our entryway but I couldn't help but include this gorgeous corner. Love the bold colors and the pop of turquoise in the vintage lamp...

I am stalking Craigslist hoping for our next perfect find. Stay tuned for more of our adventures in our cottage turned modern home!

Nice, perhaps a piece of G-plan furniture? Good luck with it all x

How much are you selling your old entry table for? If the price is right, I'd totally come to you to buy it. :)

Oooh! It's exciting choosing the next thing - hope you find the perfect item!

I've really been struggling with a concept of what my style is for home decorating. Right now every wall in my home is white. There is not a single object decorating it. I'm talking about a completely blank slate. But - that last picture in this post - that picture totally screams to me! I'm so glad I read this post today :)
