entryway inspiration

Our dining room is being de-wallpapered and the plaster moisture treated and repaired so Wells and I are hanging out at my parents house from sun up to sun down pretty much.
Doesn't leave much time for blogging and naps are spent watching Food Network and HGTV.
So it might be short and sweet for a few days.
Just thought I'd share a few of my favorite entryways today.

It's pretty obvious I have style schizophrenia going on here.
Foyers are the only room grouping I collect that doesn't seem cohesive.
What's your foyer style?



  1. Beautimous. And at least you're not tackling that darn dewallpapering job yourself :)

  2. I am the same way, I like so many different styles. Love all these entryways! I know you will create something fab at your Richmond house!

  3. What does plaster moisture look like? I have plaster walls that sometimes bubble and have circles that look like moisture, I'm wondering if we have the same thing and how you are treating your problem? My home is 70+ years old, brick exterior w/lathe walls, no insulation, Thanks

  4. Linda,
    In this case the moisture was obvious in the form of mold. There was a spot 3'x4' all the way down to the brick mortar. Once I stripped all of the wallpaper in the room I noticed a few other spots that were just bubbling, this is also caused my moisture attempting to evaporate from the brick. Our wall construction is the same as yours. As far as treating I stripped all of the paper off the walls and in some cases even the skim coat. I cleaned the walls with a product called SHOCKWAVE The next step in the process is AFTERSHOCK
    This product is applied just like paint, once it dried I just primed the walls with two coats of KILZ Premium and that was that. I had a mold specialist come to the house and test the wall which was around 40% moisture content. Its a good idea to get your spots looked at, mold is never good. Hope this helps!

  5. Hi! I came across your beautiful blog from a link party today and I am so enjoying it! Thanks for all the beautiful eye candy, great ideas, info, and humor!
