Ever since I got home from Haven, I’ve been itching to apply my newfound styling tips around the house. I decided that our entryway console table would be my first victim, I mean project.
My travel-themed display for the summer was fine, but I was ready to change things up a bit. I had my recently polka-dotted “K” but wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. Then some golden inspiration hit. One of my favorite artists and bloggy friends, Emilie, just introduced some new prints to her Etsy shop. One of which was a gold-foil print that read “Home Sweet Home.” Can you say perfect?
I love how the golden polka dotted K is all buddy-buddy with the Home Sweet Home print! A bit of cozy comfort and glam together. Just my style. I kept the terrarium/cloche and twiney ball thing, and other wooden ball thing for some different textures.
These Fletcher and Fox arrows are a recent One Kings Lane purchase. And I’m completely enamored with them. I love the neutral colors mixed with gold (notice a theme here?). And I love that they’re just unique and different. Oh, and there’s a story about the vase that the arrows are being corralled in. Stay tuned, it’s coming soon!
The bottom shelf could probably use a bit more pizazz, maybe a larger/taller item or some sort of piece that doubles as storage. Maybe just flip the white and black frames? Honestly, I’m too busy drooling over gold-foil, polka dots and arrows to notice the bottom shelf!
Now all we need is a nice large mirror with a classic black wood frame to hang on the wall! Hopefully we’ll find one sooner rather than later so we can call this little space done! (except for a new wall color, but that’ll happen this fall).
What are your favorite personal touches in your entryway? Anyone else love arrows?

Ok so I totally voted for the solid gold, but wow.. those polka dots! I love them! You have a knack for styling. Wanna come do my kitchen hutch for me? Struggles over here!
Awww, thank you Thalita! Everything I know about styling I learned at Haven 😉 But sure, I’ll come take a stab at your kitchen hutch! Hahaha 🙂
I want those feathers! LOVE them! One Kings Lane is so amazing! But, I’ve had to start deleting their emails as soon as I get them, otherwise I spend oodles of money there that I don’t have! I’ll just swoon over yours!
I’ve had to do the same thing with One Kings Lane & Joss and Main! Every once in while, I’ll peek and then find something I can’t live without 😉
I love the arrows! They are so cool. And I’m a sucker for GOLD!! Love your style!
Thank you 🙂 I’m a sucker for gold too. Well, anything shiny really!
I love that I got to see your styling prowess in action at Haven! So this post comes as no surprise. You’ve got a great eye…and I’m definitely going to draw inspiration from you and the other styling mavens out there as styling is one area in which I feel I could use some guidance. Gotta get me some arrows like those!
Thank you Lauren 🙂 I’m always looking for great styling tips! I think it’s once of those “skills” that’s constantly evolving 🙂
Definitely get some arrows! Aren’t they the coolest!?
I love your updates! I’d love if you’d link up to The DIYers. http://homecomingmn.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-diyers-and-last-weeks-top-three.html
Thanks Kayla! I’d love to link up 🙂 Be right over!
I love the gold and the arrows…swoon!
Thank you!! I am loving them too 🙂
So I’m becoming mildly…okay…ridiculously obsessed with arrows these days. I LOVE how you incorporated them into your console styling! It’s so Emily Henderson like! LOVE IT!
Awww, thanks Angie! I die at being compared to Em Henderson!!! Haha. I think I’m developing a thing for arrows as well, especially ones with gold on them!
