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.
