Crosspost from our top secret house renovation Tumblr. Lots of design considerations/conundrums in remodelling an entire house!
Our current house doesn’t allow for a classic “entry vignette”: console table (with drawer for mail storage), basket (storage), stool (for putting on boots), art or mirror (for checking how you look before departing/arriving), vase/plant (natural beauty), and dish (change/keys).
It’s an important, elaborate piece of storage that keeps clutter down, helps you find your keys, and provides gracious utility and visual welcome at a home’s entrance.
There’s a balance to strike between modern/minimal & rustic texture that will hinge on choice of console & mirror—whether they match or contrast. Sacrificing a drawer in the console for style wouldn’t be ideal. But it’s exciting to examine the options!
