This is what the entry way looked like when we first toured through the house in 2003. Eeeek! The wallpaper and flooring were quickly replaced.
I don't have a lot of pictures of the space immediately after the first big change, but for many years, this is what it looked like. I LOVED this paint colour...Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray. But it did make the space still very dark. We replaced the front door a few years ago, which definitely brightened the area.
I feel like I need to add something to this wall, but haven't quite decided what yet...
I also love these satin nickel knobs...they are really clean and simple.
