After: entryway

Kersten - January 28, 2008

We’re going to spread this out over a couple of days. So, here’s the “after” picture of the entryway:

I don’t have a good “before” picture for the entryway. We didn’t take one, evidently. Try to imagine this little alcove with nasty, forest-green carpet (so…take the color off the wall and put it on the floor), dingy paint, a nondescript light fixture, brown doors and the smell of cat.

The color on the walls is Benjamin Moore Aura “Peppermint Leaf” green from the BM store in Salt Lake. The tile is a basic gray slate from Contempo Tile in South Salt Lake, and we darkened the color to the near-black you see with a sealer/enhancer, which you can find at any tile place or home improvement store. The console table is from West Elm and is officially the last piece of furniture that we can purchase while we live here — we’re packed to the gills in this smaller place. The mirror is one that Tai bought several years ago for his condo that predates the original SLC202 (and thus also predates me).

The skis are…temporary. We have a ways to go before shoveling out that entryway closet, which is where we eventually hope to store the skis and ski boots. For the meantime, this makes us seem much more hard-core than we truly are. We wanted to make a splash with the first room that people see. That’s why we chose the bright green paint and the wall mirror. Now, if only it would stop snowing so that we stop tracking footprints all over the floor!

  1. This is awesome. I love the bold colors and big geometric shapes.

  3. We had the same issue in our house but it was the vacuum that was the culirpt and made me worry that our carpet was just going to unravel all the way across the room! We had the wooden thresholds installed and they look great and look like they were there when the house was built!I would put in a wood threshold that is the same tone/wood of the trim and baseboards in your home. This is fairly simple to do but if you want to have it professionaly done it will only cost about $50 $100 to have it installed by a carpet store.Just take in a peice of your baseboard to match it. If you have all white, then you could go with a light oak to match the beige tones in both the tile and carpet and so it will just blend in. I would not go with the metal thresholds as they look cheap and do not blend in at all.
