Entry Way Ideas

So I've been giving the entry-way-re-do a lot of thought throughout the last 2 days. I've really appreciate the comments and feedback you guys have given me since posting about my dilemma earlier this week. Christine made the suggestion that I should think about laying down a runner instead of a standard rug. I don't know why but this never occurred to me. I had considered rugs for the space READ MORE

Weighing Options

Well, I think we're making progress in our decision making. I really wish the white would work for us because I really do adore it in so many others' homes, we're just not feeling it in the living room.
