Entry way Inspiration

One of my favorite things about row houses are the entry ways.  I love when they feel old and grand.  I’ve been thinking about how we are going finish ours.  None of the original tiles are intact and there is currently no pendant, so we are basically starting from scratch.

Our entryway space is similar in size to this image below.

I love this wallpaper from Rifle Paper Co.  It’s perfect for an entry way because the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality and welcome.

I am leaning towards this tile pattern…

The hardest part is picking a pendant.  Do we go with 1.) Traditional 2.) Geometric/Modern  or 3.) Vintage?   I love them all!

1.) WayFair: Penn Station 3 Light Pendant

2.) Shades of Light: Clear Glass Prism Pentagon

Almost ready for walls

The deck is up, the electric is run, and the plumbing is in.  Once everything is inspected we will be ready for dry wall!  Oh and some firefighters stopped by to get some tips from our contractor Franco, since most of the them moonlight as handyman/contractors a well.

Cheers, Hayley
