Pretty Prudent Home Sneak Peek + Entryway Inspiration and Ideas

New Entryway Inspiration
Jacinda and I have been hard at work wrapping up our upcoming book, Pretty Prudent Home (Abrams, Spring 2015) and in doing so have created some lovely, fun, and yes, prudent, spaces in our little corners of the world. We are trying to keep it all under wraps, but it’s so hard when you have fun new spaces, awesome scores, and hot deals you want share! Lucky us, we promised our friends from Lamps Plus that we would give a sneak peek at the beautiful products we snagged from their extensive online selection of home decor, furniture, and of course, lamps.

I live in a small California bungalow with a teensy little wall opposite the front door, just ripe for some entryway re-decorating goodness. There’s nothing I love more than spiffing up a small space, so I had fun doing my new entryway then coming up with some fantasy entry way ideas for y’all.

I went with a demilune because it takes up so little space, then decided to go bold with a giant round mirror and industrial-style sconces to tie it all together with more round shapes. Before this little interior design adventure, I had no idea that Lamps Plus carried so much more than lamps. Take a look…

Wow!! I love those atom sconces and the leather mirror. I didn’t realize Lamps Plus had such cool stuff!! I just bought a house and am looking at doing some little updates. I think I’m going to have to swing by their store!! Thanks for the inspiration!


Oh wow! Your entryway looks amazing! I love all the lighting and mirror combinations too. I’m planning to shake things up a bit in my condo and I’ll definitely pin some of these for consideration. Thanks!


Wait, you got all this stuff at Lamps Plus? Even all the other entryway ideas? I’m right in the middle of a giant clean-out and revamping and these ideas are just what I needed. Thank you!


Um, I totally want that Kell Half-Circle Natural Wood and Iron Console Table. I pass by the Lamps Plus near me all the time. I think I’m going to have to do a little stop by. Do they have sales?
