Today, we’re sharing our photo tour with all of the details from the project!
With three kids, a dog, and a unique entryway layout, Christine was unsure how to fill the entrance of her home. Focusing on both beauty and functionality, we designed this space to feel comfortable and lived-in while still reflecting their elevated style.
Since their entryway includes an additional seating area, our goal was to design two spaces that spoke to each other but felt separate.
Finding inspiration in their love for coastal and traditional juxtapositions, we got to work.
We started with the area when you first walk into the door. We love to ground every entryway with a rug, and using this striped jute area rug was the perfect way to give them texture. Plus, it’s super durable and brings a coastal feel into the room.
Christine mentioned to us that she wanted a bench in front of her railing, and our Macy Ottoman in stonewashed linen softened up the space perfectly while giving it an added element of warmth. Completed with one of our favorite throws draped to the side, the corner couldn’t be cozier.
Selecting a console is the most important decision in an entryway space. When we do our two-day transformations, we typically ask our clients to choose something they have their hearts set on. For Christine, it was this beautiful open console. To show an option with more storage space, we styled our Sorren Cabinet in the area as well!
Above the console, we found the perfect piece of artwork with a hazy abstract beach scene that brings a little bit of color but still feels neutral, creating a great backdrop to layer all of the beautiful accessories styled on top.
Due to the open concept of the home, you see a lot of the house from the front door, which means there are a lot of rugs happening. To bring a more organic shape into the space, we layered this beautiful cowhide that contrasts perfectly with the rest of their textiles.
Since Christine and her husband are both fashion bloggers, they are always taking family selfies. This large, tall mirror was a must-have for them. To bring even more height and depth into the area, we styled this marble and brass lamp behind two matching chairs for additional seating and comfort.
Styled with greenery, a pair of vintage pillows for character, and our woven side table to balance out the jute and cane in the entryway, the space came to life.
We’re so glad Christine loved the end result as much as we did! Seeing our client’s faces light up when they see their finished spaces is the best part of our two-day transformation series, and we can’t for more to come!

Where can I get that surf photo/artwork?!
Our shop! Here’s a link 🙂 https://www.mcgeeandco.com/products/idyllic-summer
This is so gorgeous!! I have the silliest question though: when you have black doors with brass hardware, do you typically use brass hinges to match the knob or black hinges to blend in with the door? I can’t decide and no one EVER photographs that!
Where’s the beach print from? Is it on the website?
Hello, will this mirror be coming back in stock!
