i've known this girl since she was born. we were neighbors that grew up together. we have amazing childhood memories and continue to create more memories everyday. ashley recently bought her first home and asked me to help her get a few things ready before the big house warming party.
the one room in the house that she wanted finished before the party was the foyer. being a lover of the ocean she wanted to reflect that relaxing feeling through ocean imagery. we found two old cabinet doors that we hung horizontally and painted a pool blue. i took pictures at big talbot, a local state park and spray mounted the pictures to foam core. i hung the pictures from burlap and used drapery clips from ikea to attach them to the burlap.
hurricane vase with shells and table found at an antique mall painted cream = beachy chic.
and oh how i love the wall color.
for her house warming gift i got her this capiz pendant from west elm. she loved it and it brought the whole space together!
it's awesome how color and a little decoration can make a person feel at home and so happy to walk through the front door.
