"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Modern entryway

I have been busy working on an entryway for a client.  Her wish list included something modern with natural materials and minimal colour.  I found some great pieces that will give her the look she's going for.  The bench will be in a buttery coloured leather not the white shown in my mood board and we will use the black frames to do a gallery wall of family photos for above the bench.  I can't wait to see it all pulled together!  I am always just as excited as the client to see a room through to completion.  I will post before and after pics once it's finished.  What do you think?


  1. Lovely! I really like that bench. So nice to meet you at IDS. Hope we can stay in touch.

  2. Oooh! The shape of the table really really catches my eye!! This is going to be quite stunning Andrea, can't wait to see :)

  3. I love the buttery/natral tones... I can't wait for the reveal!

  4. That's going to be great. I love that light fixture. Looking forward to seeing the area all put together.
