Psst! Have you been following along with the new Get the Look series? These posts go up every Friday here on the blog. In them, I take a photo of a beautifully designed space and find the look-a-like pieces you can purchase that will mimic the room's look and feel.
As I mentioned in my post on Tuesday, this week's Get the Look post is all about the magical combination of a console table and round mirror in an entryway. You can read all about why I'm crazy for this combo in that post, but today, I'm focused on making the job of finding the perfect pieces easy so all that's left for you to do is shop! :)
Since entryways are usually the first impression that folks get when they step into our homes, why not make it a focal point that's both practical and pretty? Since you only need a few items to create a well thought out space, this can be a relatively inexpensive endeavor.
There are five main items I like to have in an entry:
- Console table
- Round mirror
- A tray, bowl, or other vessel you can use as a catch-all for keys and other small items
- Something living (a plant or flowers)
After those are in place, it's all about accessorizing! Add things like books, decorative objects (how cute is the brass elephant in the photo below?), and art, and you're good to go! I sourced a few items to get you started, but always feel free to add your own personal touch. It's your house after all, and it should reflect YOU!
Console Table* | 28" Round Brass Mirror | Faux Snake Plant in Planter (or get the real deal plant and put it in this planter!) | Mini Task Lamp | Black and White Colorblocked Bowl | Large Candle | Small Candle | California State Art | Black Frame
The total cost for this look? About $600.
The round brass mirror is one of my favorites - I have one in my home! And that planter has a faux snake plant in it. I've seen it in person and it's actually pretty realistic-looking, so if you're a certified plant-killer, or you just don't want to deal with the real thing, this guy might be a good fit! If you'd rather grab a real plant, this planter is just like the one in the inspiration image, and you can stick whatever you'd like in it.
The total cost for this look? About $500. Such a steal!
There are a couple of items that are super affordable - one is the abstract art print, which is an instant download from Etsy (talk about getting art in a hurry!), and the other is the mirror, which is on sale right now for $160. For a 34" mirror, that's a GREAT deal, so snap that baby up!
