Full disclosure — I’m going through this “moment” right now with my house where I’m over “stuff” and/or desperately wanting to update an area of the home. You may have noticed this considering that a few of the latest posts are where I created a hat wall in our master bedroom, redesigned my home office shelves and then went on to purge my closet, I’m in this transition phase of sorts of wanting to switch things up but not spend much (or any) money to do so. That leaves me to design with everyday items that are already around my home and today’s focus was on the entryway.
These hooks have held many things over the years (mason jars, seasonal decor, macrame, etc), but it literally dawned on me while eating breakfast the other morning to hang some of my round straw handbags as decor! Just like my hat wall, I stuck with neutral tones and various sizes, but the texture and tone play perfectly with the overall design of my home. This area in my entryway is right inside the front door where we have a built-in to hold all of Dexie’s pet supplies and I have a vintage tray on top for my collection of sunglasses. It’s almost like I unintentionally created a grab-and-go station to get out the door!
This is my insiders trick to getting a fresh redesign without spending a dime. Simply “shop” your house and you’d be amazed at what you can recreate. I’m constantly doing this but I must say, poor Sean has to feel the wrath of it because where something was for the past 4 years, it can suddenly have a new home. Thankfully he’s become quite accustomed to my ways and is patient with my redesigning habits.
I love this simple tip of designing your entryway with everyday items as it creates a visual appeal and has functionality. Now that’s designing your home with intentional living!
Keep Living a Stylized Life.
