My Entry

Hello! I hope you are having a fabulous day! The sun is shining here today and that puts me in a happy and energetic mood!!

A few days ago, I share my Santos Doll that stands proud in my entry way, if you missed it, you can read about it  here

Today I would like to take you on a tour of my entry way. 

The walls are recently painted in Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams. I love that color, and it goes with everything!

As you enter thru the front door, to your right (left from this angle) there is a console table, It is black with gold accents and decorations, I bought it years ago at Home Goods, It was love at first sight, till this day, I still love it.

The chair on the left, as you enter the house, the right on the picture, is an antique office chair, that I rescued from ending up in the dump! Yes, a friend of mine, was sick and tired of it and was taking it to the dump. I gladly offered to take it home with me, and now that beautiful chair is living a very happy life in my home!

The needlepoint area rug was another love at first sight find from TJ Max many, many years ago. Luckily this is a very low traffic area and the rug is holding up beautifully!

I love red, and I used to have a lot of red in my family room and entry hallway. I neutralized the family room a couple years ago and got rid of all the red there, but I kept it in the entry. I love the punch of color here!

It is fun to accessorize this console table and change it for the different seasons. Right now it is sporting my santos doll, a couple of antique books underneath a golden angel, some antique binoculars and one of my favorite pictures of my babies! 

Look at those faces! Aren't they adorable? Yup, proud mama over here!! :)

I'm on my way to baseball practice! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!!

  1. Cristina, your home is beautiful. I love how traditional the house is but your decorating has a fresh spin to it. I love red too. :)

    Yes, your kids are adorable!! My boys are grown and we still have the little kid pics all around. You never get tired of looking at those little faces.

  2. Years ago we lived close to a Home Goods, and they always had the most wonderful side tables for entryways or a bedside. I miss being near to a Home Goods.... always the best finds! I love your entryway table! Thanks for sharing. xo

  3. Your entry way is totally charming and exceptionally pretty! That chinoiserie table is gorgeous and it's easy to see why you fell in love with it. And your sweet rescue chair is the unexpected touch that every room needs. Perfect!
