Thinking In Pink

Decorating with pinkPink Decorating. House Beautiful

About a week ago I really started to get spring fever. I love cozy winters and falls, but by this point I’m over it. Anyone else? Spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 20 (the calendar says) so I guess I’m just getting antsy for some sunshine.

In my dreams we’d head off to a warm climate, but to prolong our winter-vibes we enjoyed a random snow storm here in Seattle yesterday. It was lovely, though. Truly. It is so rare that we get snow (I was getting jealous of my family in Portland who had tons of snow this winter!) that I actually loved staying in my jammies all morning and drinking coffee in bed as the snow fell outside. It felt peaceful and quiet.

But still. I’m ready to walk outside at will and not freeze or fall flat on my face on an unexpected patch of ice! :)

Until the snow melts and some pretty flowers start poking up from the ground to assure me spring is on its way, I’m just getting into pre-spring nesting mode around the house :). I still need things to be cozy (because snow) but I can’t help but start thinking in shades of PINK. Pink reminds me of new babies and romance and the earliest spring blossoms on the cherry trees.

I don’t usually have much pink at my house (well, unless you count our pink bathtub or a pink bouquet from time to time) but I do love to see a touch of it in a room. Even if you don’t have pink at your house, I hope a little pink will inspire you for spring, too.

Do you have a designated entry in your home? Many houses we looked at when we were house hunting didn’t have separate entry. So even though ours is quite narrow and actually more of a hallway than a room, it is still fun to have at least a little space to work with. Now that I have a Dutch door I’m even more in love with our entry.

The challenge with small entries (and all small spaces) is how to make them functional and charming. Today’s post offers ideas that might inspire you with ways to add both character and function to a small entry.

Not to worry if you don’t have a designated entry at all, you’ll find inspiration for entries that open right into a living space, too. Furniture placement can sometimes help create the illusion of a separate entry and organizational accessories nearby can increase the functionality of your home.

Happy Monday!

Shallow cabinets, hooks, cubbies, and a small bench maximize space.

Even a simple set of hooks and a mirror will create entry-way functionality in a small space.

Double-duty furniture (like this bar cart) help to create a designated entrance.

This is a bedroom, but corner shelves would be great in a small entry too!
