The Farmhouse Entry Reveal (+ How To Hang A Gallery Wall On Wallpaper)

Come on in, of us. Our entry is completed (for now) and prepared so that you can get a full tour. I adore it. If you’re simply catching up, head to this publish from final Thursday the place I stroll you thru the total renovation technique of this little joyful room. For these of you caught up let’s head straight into the reveal.

“Setting the tone” for a home might be a whole lot of strain, particularly for somebody like me whose temper adjustments often. Regardless, I need it to really feel calm however filled with character and have it signify our type. So I saved the wallpaper tremendous quiet, after which the artwork, bench, plant stand, and rug actually fairly with shade and greater character.


I really like each factor in right here a lot. That lovely window from Sierra Pacific is the point of interest of this view (from inside the lounge), however if you end up strolling in from the entrance door, the artwork and bench make a extra eclectic enjoyable assertion.

The Brass Gallery Rail Artwork

Whereas I really like a mirror within the entryway, we truly don’t have a TON of wall house on this home (what with my habit to home windows). This room was pretty self-contained – you can see it from the lounge however you couldn’t actually see this wall from the lounge – thus giving us a chance to do one thing actually enjoyable and particular right here. So I introduced out certainly one of my favourite items – a classic portray that my good friend Scott gave me because the anchor after which I began constructing the gallery from there. However then I obtained nervous…

Hanging The Gallery Rail…

Placing nails OR command strips on wallpaper might be tremendous damaging with much less to no capability to restore like you may on drywall. So I made a decision to do that gallery artwork rail which might enable me to modify it up, anytime, together with simply having perhaps two giant items and even one bigger one. I ordered the 72″ rail from Pepe and Caroles which got here with center brackets and two endcaps, plus the size of the gallery chain and S hooks. Our handyman, Dave, came visiting and hung it as a result of I don’t belief myself with “measuring” or “making issues stage” (he’s additionally my neighbor so it makes it very easy:)).

We laid it out for him and clearly selected the space from the partitions and ceiling.

Time To Play…

Per normal, my first go-around is at all times BIG. LOTS of stuff. I actually actually tried to not steal all the most effective artwork for this room as a result of lots of them regarded nice the place I had already put them. Admittedly I’ve collected a whole lot of nice artwork over time – each classic and up to date and I personally assume it’s the quickest approach to make your own home really feel private to you.

I knew that I liked just a few of the items collectively (the large summary and the collage with the tan background). So then it was a matter of including to it to get the appropriate mixture. I first put up the “Molly Vidor Destroyer” piece that’s within the left photograph however Brian had the oddest however sincere response – he stated it felt too “dorm room”. I believe the classic graphic print (the one with the arrow) and gallery poster felt too “younger” (which I felt regarded cool and was a fantastic distinction with the busier summary and the old-timey artwork). However his response was rapid and powerful and I definitely had extra to play with so I eradicated these two and added extra (as you may see within the photograph on the appropriate). That felt a bit a lot for me regardless of loving each piece. I believe that the house is simply too small to have fairly so many items (though secretly I miss my canine on this combine).

Right here’s The place We Landed…

Okay, I KNOW that this would possibly now look too pared again, however I believe it’s a fantastic stability of enjoyable however not too busy. The artist left to proper are: Kiril Bergart, beneath MaryAnn Puls (a brand new buy of mine by a neighborhood artist I really like). Then the center portray is classic from the 60s, a present from my good friend Scott. On the appropriate, is a brand new hand-dyed paper collage by Marilyn Joyce (one other latest buy by a neighborhood artist).

I believe all collectively it seems actually fairly, however admittedly perhaps the artwork will not be not as balanced as it may be. Fortunately we now have the gallery rail so as to add extra or swap any out. Now as you may see the one on the decrease left is askew which was NOT my intent. Whoops. That’s the solely downside of the chains – they are often wonky and taking them on and off is simple, however making the tremendous straight with the S hooks on the very same ring of the chain might be difficult. We nonetheless plan on utilizing museum wax to ensure all of them keep in place. Subsequent time I’m going to loop the chain like a triangle in order that it hooks on each brackets on the again however solely has one heart S hook (does that make sense?). Anyway, I can preserve taking part in with it perpetually and sure will 🙂

The plant stand is an vintage stair newell that I purchased at an vintage retailer. It has a threaded bolt factor on prime that I threaded via the underside gap of the plant so it stays on prime (however is wonky from totally different angles and I don’t know easy methods to repair it). I really like the busyness of the newell with the simplicity of the bench – the combination of woods that’s simply so fairly.

I splurged on that pillow from Misplaced & Discovered LA as a result of the colours are so lovely and it’s so lush. We styled it merely right here which I actually love. Please be aware how the Rejuvenation milk glass classic gentle fixture permits the window to actually pop (and the door to totally open which was a consideration clearly).

Seeing it facet by facet with the earlier than photograph is fairly mindblowing. I’m simply so so grateful.

So there you go. Our entryway. I hope you prefer it (we do). All assets are linked beneath 🙂 xx
