My Hallway Thoughts

January 31, 2011 at 9:57 AM 5 comments

I’ve posted about different ideas for my entryway in the past, here and here.  But one thing I haven’t posted about is my beloved console table.  I wanted to hold off until I knew it would fit into the budget.  After about one year of admiring this console table, I did the math, squeezed it into the budget and purchased away.  I present to you the Blu Dot Stut console table in watermelon:

Isn’t she purty?  Mine is currently in transit and it should be here very, very soon.  You may recall, seeing a similar item on my favorite breakfast room e-design.  I used the blu dot watermelon dining table for it.

One thing that kind of bummed me out was that my beloved console table in my fresh color of watermelon was featured in the latest Lonny Mag.

Why would something like this bumm me out?  Well, because I’m afraid it’ll start popping up everywhere.  However, this is foolish thinking; it’s not like the table was unknown before Lonny.  I need to feel flattered that my LOVE for this table has been validated by the one and only Lonny Mag editors.  And, it was featured in Philadelphia Home Magazine…

How much fun is this entryway?!  I actually own this exact vase and could recreate this look but I’ll try to do something different with it.  You’ll have to stay tuned…

    Kate, I have that exact wallpaper in our hallway and I love it! I get comments on it all the time. Love your console table, can’t wait to see photos of it in your space!

      I remember your mom saying that you had zebra in your hallway and I’ve always wondered if it was the Rose Cummings paper. Your home sounds so cool – I’d love to see pics!!

    Hi Kate, I love your console – In fact that last pic is my house that you so nicely showed. I have loved my console table, and was also sorry to see it on Lonny as well.It normally sits in my entryway, but for the magazine shoot they put it in my office on the rose cummings wallpaper. It was for a shoot in Philadelphia Home magazine last year! Thanks for sharing.
