Sharing a few pics of our front entry today! When you walk in our front door you see into our formal living room and then out into the backyard. Our entry is a simple square so when we were in the planning stage we decided it would be fun to do something different with the floor so that it stood out a bit more.
Here is our original sketch of the entry floor plan. Most of the floors throughout our house are wood so we decided to keep some wood in a criss cross pattern and put marble tile in the squares. I was a little nervous at first that this would look too busy and I kept going back and forth about whether or not I should keep this pattern or just leave the entry simple with only hardwood, but I ultimately decided to mix it up and go with the pattern. I’m so glad I did! I really like how it turned out.
Here is a pic I snapped with my phone when they had just laid the hard wood. This took a LONG time for my hardwood guy to make all the cuts exactly perfect. He was all about attention to detail – the two of us got along famously. :) He did such a great job lining everything up!
And here’s the floor all finished with the marble! I remember the morning I chose which piece of marble should go in each square/triangle. We came so close to not having enough marble to finish it all and I was stressed because each batch of marble is so unique that I would have had to order a whole new batch if I didn’t have enough. Luckily we had just enough to finish the entry!
A pic I snapped with my phone from the upstairs after the wood was finished.
And here is what it looks like from above today! Still love that orb light. :)
A few more pics of the entry…
This picture I took standing in our formal living room so you can see how the pattern is just on the entry way floor.
I was going to get shots from a few more angles but a certain someone crashed my photo shoot. No more pictures mom! Time to pay attention to me!
So that’s a wrap on the entry post.
