Some Entry Way Love

Now that we're getting to experience a mere sampling of Boston's chilly winter weather and have a growing collection of cold weather essentials stowed in our entry and mudroom, I've been scouring the web for some entry way and mudroom inspiration.  

The entry way was first on our "to beautify" list primarily because our guests see it the instant they are welcomed into our home.  (The mudroom shall be dealt with...but later)  After a little research and Pinterest pinning, here are my most favorite entry way photos:





When looking at all these together, I made a list of what we would like in our entry way: 
1) A console to use as storage and to place small items on (i.e. keys, phones, etc.) 
2) A few (very pretty!) hooks for hanging visitors' coats on (as we have a coat closet to stash our wares)
3) An area for shoes to be stashed, or an area where people knew to line their shoes up when they came over
4) A spot to sit for snow boot removal purposes

As you can see in my budget entry design below, 3 of the 4 happened - the console, the hooks, and a boot tray.





The jury is still out on a spot to sit...perhaps in the future.  I think it looks pretty darn good and the only items we bought were my two coveted Anthropologie hooks ($18 each), above.  Love them!

How do you think it turned out?  Do tell!

it looks absolutely AMAZING. Nearly everyday IC and I look at each other and say "someday we're going to have a mudroom!"

Love it, sweetie. Now where might I find the iron bench and hook system with the basket tray top???

Oh how I long for an actual entryway. One door enters immediately into the living room and the other, the one everyone uses, immediately into the kitchen. "Someday".

This looks lovely Kristen! I should do some more updates on my entry but haven't found the energy yet. I love your red console xx

I absolutely love the map. I am a HUGE sucker for globes, maps, anything that shows how big but how small the world is. I love it!
