A simple entry way

May 14, 2019 in Blog, House Tour

I love having an entry way. My husband and I debate about this all the time because he would just love an open concept house and I enjoy having a place to greet our guest and lead them into our living spaces. Our kitchen starts in the wall behind our entry way, so partially I think if we opened it up it would be weird to basically walk into the kitchen.

Our entry way is tiny and theres not a whole lot you can do besides hang a coat in the closet, but it couldn’t stay empty either. Originally I wanted a huge wall hanging on the wall made by my daughter at New Yorkie Designs, but I opted out because we already have on in our neighboring dining room. So instead I opted for a vintage painting with a simple bench that I had made. House Mouse Creations here in San Antonio did a great job on the bench. It has that mid century vibe that I love so much.

For pillows we went with some extras that we had and got pillow covers from Amazon. The Antler one I got a while back and was in my closet, and the chevron stiped one tied in the teal color that I have going on in the adjoining rooms. Along with decorating, we painted the room white since it was an ugly beige before. Eventually I want to add a basket for shoes under the bench and/or some greenery, but I’m going to have to wait until our puppy gets older because she still likes to destroy everything.

About Me

Hi I'm Monica! I'm a Real Estate professional in love with houses, especially vintage houses. I even have my Historic Homes Specialist designation. I enjoy decorating and rehabbing and helping my clients create their dream home with inexpensive updates. I also love helping sellers get top dollar for their property by taking the dated out of their home and staging in a modern simplistic way. I'm also obsessed with Mid Century furniture, so if it doesn't fit in my house, you'll find it in my Etsy Shop. I enjoy coffee and thrift store shopping to look for items to repurpose and use in house. And of course anything vintage, I’m a bit of a June Cleaver. I’m a wife and a mom of teenage twins that I homeschool. I am currently a Realtor in San Antonio, TX, and a lender in both Texas & California. But if you are from Southern California don't worry I have connections, I also help educate all over the country about the home buying process and have a team of people that i work with to help you reach your goals. We moved to SATX from SOCAL in 2018 to simplify our life. I love it here and have helped several people relocate. Read More
