entry makeover

Entries are so neglected. Especially mine. And that's sad, because entries have the tough job of first impressions. Here's mine. I finally painted the short wall using a quart of sample paint from my bedroom. And then I hung our wedding photos (finally printed after 2 1/2 years of marriage) and a crucifix I picked up in Rome. Annnnd that's about as far as it's gotten.

And here's some things I'd like to add to it (eventually), along with finishing the paint job. I want it to be southern, warm, inviting, and personal. I want it to be a first impression of who we are. Here's a look:

Sourcing: 1. magnolia sconce from barnhouse electric // 2. nocturnal gray paint by benjamin moore // 3. brazilian cowhide rug // 4. threshold bar frame from target // 5. black "P" from hobby lobby // 6. threshold nest frame from target // 7. threshold wood inlay frame from target // 8. ikea maffens basket // 9. antique silver pitcher (I have a similar one) with a cotton flower arrangement // 10. currey and co. signature white table lamp // 11. ikea rekarne table

I'm considering using just two sconces as a source of light. The overhead is not very bright and the ceiling is too low for a hanging pendant. Also I think bringing down the light source will help make the space more cozy feeling. 

What do you think??
