Here is a drawing of the main entry way of our new home. It's a very small area, but we wanted to built it in as an entry way, instead of opening up to a long hall-way.
Being that it's the first thing that we'll see when we come home, and guests will see when they visit, we want to give it a nice look and feel.
We're not too optimistic that we'll have much room for any furniture in here, but we figured it would at least allow us a nice entry point to the rest of the house.
We have some vintage koa furniture peices that could possibly set the tone for this room. We'd really like a modern/contemporary/island look and feel to this space to create a warm and inviting entry way.
When you enter, ahead to the left is the main hallway to the rest of the house and to your left is the stairwell and a storage room underneath the stairwell.
We would like some ideas on how we can give this quaint room some pop.
We were also possibly considering building in a false wall to right of the door which would create and seperate the entry way from the small sitting room to the right.
Also note, the breaker box in the corner of the room... junk, but we may be able to move it, or cover it up somehow!
