Bear in mind when I introduced you to our brand new Murray Feiss table lamp, care of Del Mar Fans & Lighting? Nicely I’m back to share the complete breakdown of how this little-but-mighty accessory inspired an whole entryway, all centered on my favourite season of the year—Christmas time, of course!
As I pointed out back in November, The Program 1st involved brand new wallpaper. I have been aching (aching, I tell you!) to incorporate a roll of Hygge & West’s Petal Pusher (in gold) into our decor, but had been waiting to splurge until we got our “forever home.” Nonetheless, as it turns out, the fates have distinct plans for us and our home has yet to sell. With no move in our close to future, I decided that now was the time to wallpaper and I couldn’t be happier with the new addition.
The fresh metallic texture of the wallpaper really sets the stage. The wall itself is not large—no more than four feet wide—but the white and gold finish practically glows in the shifting light of our living space and draws visitors in right away. I’m nonetheless not employed to the happy shock of the update and smile every and each and every time I walk through the front door.
To make this feature wall even far more particular, I added a straightforward white Parson’s style desk (a piece I picked up ages ago from Overstock) and, right after setting it with our new Murray Feiss lamp, seasonal accessories (including my stained and painted nutcrackers) and our DIY advent calendar, it feels just appropriate for our holiday-prepared property.
As for under the desk, I added a large wicker basket (our hiding spot for blankets) plus a pile of coffee table art books and a vintage brass magazine holder. Set with a grassy plant just to the side, the function wall and entryway had been ultimately comprehensive.
Now I’m curious. How do you style your personal holiday entryway? I’m especially interested to know how you carve one out if you don’t have a formal entryway. Do you use shelving? A repurposed desk like we did? I’m all ears!
