UPDATING OUR ENTRY WITH ALL MODERN

*This post was sponsored by AllModern but all opinions are my own*

With the change of seasons comes a new desire to update our home to make it work better for the season of life that we are in and thankfully that is back to school! Anyone else extremely grateful for this? 

With running in and out of the house more frequently, we needed a place to be able to place our bags and take off our shoes. Our foyer is very traditional with the beautiful round banister and crown moulding and although I love these older traditional features of our home, I was feeling like our foyer need a little bit of a refresh. 

So when All Modern selected us to participate in their Make a Grand Entrance campaign, I jumped at the opportunity. I knew exactly what I wanted to upgrade! 


AllModern has a lot of great options for your entry. They make it easy to shop too! I was able to save all the items I was looking at for our foyer in a folder and narrow down my design from those options. The first item I was on the hunt for was a bench that would fit in our narrow alcove below the stairs. I wanted something upholstered and a little more modern. This Oslo bench was the perfect fit. Simple, yet comfortable and also in stock! Can we get a hallelujah for that!!!  I liked that the more modern legs brought in that little modern update I was going for and the neutral fabric would allow me to change out the decor with the seasons. 




To add some color to the space I chose this beautiful blue embroidered pillow. I love the contrast with the color of the bench and I think it fills in the corner space of my foyer nicely. It's also beautifully made and so pretty in person. These would be beautiful paired with a camel colored pillow. 



Increasing the cozy factor for the season is this simple throw blanket. We can easily grab this as we head out the door to sit by the fire on those cool fall evenings. I also love that it's called the Bodine Blanket because my cat, Bode has already claimed her spot on it. I should start calling her Bodine since she is a girl cat with a boy name. That's a story for another day. 



Foyers are one of the hardest used areas in the home so a durable rug that can easily hide the dirt is a MUST in the space. I'm always a huge fan of the price and looks of a jute rug and at under $50 for this one, I don't feel guilty having to replace it when this one has done it's time. Paired with our dark floors it brings in some warmth to the space. 


The last final touch to our entryway update was a new piece of art. I like adding art to unexpected places like the smaller empty walls in the entry. The wall felt a little bare next to the bench. I eventually want to add another piece to this but I like to start with a starting point and build upon it, maybe one of the postcards I've collected from our travels. I also wanted to tie in the black with the metal legs from the bench. 

I love how I was able to update this entry of ours and make a more usable space for our family and can't wait to sit down and kick off my shoes at the end of a long day but to be honest I'm most excited about having a place to keep my purse. Maybe I can accomplish more things with all the time I will be saving not looking for it.

FATHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS

 With Father's Day around the corner, it's time to start thinking about what to get that special guy in your life. There are so many cool gadgets out there right now that there is sure to be something for everyone on my gift guides. From the hottest new pizza oven (that I'll be sharing on Insta stories) to the most clever water bottle that stores your keys and airpods there has to be something your Dad hasn't yet bought himself. As I was working on these gift guides, Rob gave his approval on many items. We have some of these that he loves and some that he's wanting to try out. So here we go...


First up is the Grill Master in your life. I have one of those so we have tried lots of gadgets and grills. I recently got him the Ooni pizza oven for his birthday. It was backordered and just came in last week so we are going to fire it up and test it out with you on stories. The other hot grill item is the Blackstone Tabletop outdoor grill. We had one of these at our beach rental last year and it was easy to use. It also has a portable travel bag that you can store all the accessories. Perfect for camping or a day at the beach. If you prefer a charcoal grill, the portable table top grill is not only good looking, it's the perfect size for traveling. Looking to step it up a notch, get a personalized one here. I was psyched to see the Cup Board Pro in my hunt for the perfect gift. I remember seeing this on Shark Tank and wanting this but it had been sold out for so long.





 






Next is the outdoorsy type. We're huge fans of our solo stove but this Kamoto small open fire pit folds up so small, that it's great for camping and on the go. If you've seen anyone share videos with the new go pro, then you know how cool it is. Lots of accessories to go with it too. We have this bean bag toss set and they have held up well. They fold up with a handle to carry them easily and store the bean bags inside. They also look good too!

 





And lastly is my overall picks for Father's day. If you don't yet have a massage gun, this is a highly used item in our household. It has relieved many muscle pains. I like this new apple key fob, although it is me who needs this and not Rob but for the dads always misplacing their keys, then this is a good gift idea. A masterclass subscription for the Dad's wanting to learn from the best, cool kicks, ice molds and so much more!  






I hope that these gift guides help you with you shopping for that special Dad in your life!
