Last week we made a ton of progress on the room! Lighting is all installed, artwork is finished and hung, I bought a giant fake tree and a pillow. Things are moving right along. All that is left is some putzy decor and finding some more pillows which is my least favorite part of doing any room. I am a minimalist, I don’t like a lot of “stuff” in my rooms, even cute stuff.
And last week I left off with painting my front door after I repainted the entryway which is right off this front living room. This is the domino effect. I decided to go with Behr color of the year for 2018, In the Moment. Originally it was going to be for just the exterior side of the front door but then I went for it on the interior part as well. I love the pop of color in the entryway and I think it plays nicely with everything.
Now I am on a hunt for a rug in the entryway. Target had two choices that I thought would work well in here. The problem of course being the domino effect with the one rug. This was plays nicely with all the colors in the entryway and the front living room so it’s an easy choice although my hubby doesn’t like this rug. He thinks it looks like the printer ran out of ink and it has a “weird pattern.” I like that it’s light and goes easily in the space but I don’t love it and the downside of a light colored rug in the entryway in Minnesota is it will get dirty.
The next option is not my usual style and I surprised myself putting this rug in my cart and bringing it home. BUT, I really love it with the door and it adds some fun color to the entryway. It matches the front living room sort of but then I will need to change out the curtains which isn’t that big of a deal. The domino effect will take place in the entryway with artwork and painting the little closet nook. But it would be worth it to have a fun rug with some color.
So while the front living room was the original ORC room, the entryway has kind of been thrown in with it as I have now painted the walls and the door, adding in a rug and changing up some wall decor. This video seemed fitting to end with as this is how I feel right now except it would be look what the ORC made me do!
Next week, I will finally reveal the entire room for the first time. It’s hard to keep it all in but I want it to be Wow worthy! In the meantime, check out all the ORC awesomeness with the contributors and the linking participants like myself.
