Bold Rug Choice for Our Entryway

Sharing a sneak peek of the turquoise ombre bold rug I selected for our front entryway. Time to get started on this makeover!

How was your Easter weekend? We celebrated my son’s 18th birthday (still can’t believe he’s that old already!), caught up on a few things around the house, and did a little shopping. With the changing seasons, our wardrobes all needed a little freshening. Unfortunately I came up empty-handed for myself, but it means I have a little more money to go towards our front entryway makeover that has been put off for far too long.

Ikat Blue Ombre Wool Area Rug

I haven’t finalized the design details for the space yet, but I’m using this blue ombre rug as the jumping off point. A bold choice for me perhaps, but I’m craving colour after the long winter we’ve had. I’m thinking light and airy paint on the walls, dark grey tile on the floor, and pops of blue and green in the artwork and accessories.

Our rug should be arriving in the next week or two, and I can’t wait to roll my sleeves up and tackle the space. There are far too many hockey bag and backpack dings to go unnoticed, and with it being the first area you see when you enter our home, it’s really not leaving the best first impression!

Later on, I’ll be sharing a few more ideas I have kicking around for a wall treatment, lighting, and more. These ideas for our front entrance have been swimming around in my head for far too long!

Do you have any projects you’re finally getting to after a long period of time? Perhaps you want to join me in crossing them off your list this month!
