Entryway Refresh

A few weeks ago I decided that my entryway table needed a new vase. I had been rotating between two vases on my entry table for the last two years, so I decided that I deserved a new vase. I don’t typically like to spend a lot on one particular item, so the vase I found was a bit of a splurge for me. (But completely worth it!)

Here is a glance at what my entryway has looked like over the past two years. (You can also see more pictures in previous blog posts here and here. )

I have loved this black handled vase, (similar vase here), but I eventually ended up moving it to my bedroom, so I was looking for something new to put in its place. (I also decided to move the rattan table lamp into my dining room for some extra accent lighting.)

This terracotta vase caught my eye as soon as I saw it. I knew it would be perfect on my table. I also wanted to get some extra long realistic greenery and found these stems on Etsy. It didn’t take much arranging to get the greenery to drape and look as if it was spilling out of the vase.

Since I moved my rattan table lamp, I needed some new entryway lighting to replace it. I had this accordion pleated lampshade (20$ at Target) sitting on my desk for a few months. I finally got around to shopping for a new lamp base and found this green lamp base at At Home.

Nothing else changed in the entryway. I still have the same art, mirror, rug, ottoman, and olive tree that I had the last time I did a refresh. I think a lot of people think that they need to switch out all of their decor in order for it to feel new and refreshed, but as you can see from the pictures, that is not the case. You can change out one to two items in a space and make it feel completely new.

Easy tips for your own refresh

  • One of the easiest tips I can share (above) is changing out your artwork seasonally. It is the best budget-friendly way (that I have found) to update your decor without spending a lot of money. I often visit Etsy and purchase, download, and print from home the beautiful artwork that I find. Most of the art that I print is on sale and usually is no more than $3 a download. (You can also choose from multiple sizes within a purchase.)
  • Another tip, (not mentioned above), is to simply shop your own home. I tend to keep things in the same place for months at a time, but you can get a fresh look by just rotating items around your home.
