We made it! Are you ready for another beautiful room reveal?! I cannot believe that we finished this space in 6 weeks! This was the first One Room Challenge where I was really unsure if we were going to get it all done in time! But a few late nights and somehow we pulled it all together. Our modern entryway is a dream come true for us! I can’t believe the transformation… but just to remind you… this is where we started….

Do you remember this space?! I barely recognize it and I lived in it! Let me introduce you to our new modern entryway. Starting with the beautiful new black front door!
Last week we shared all about our front door installation, which was waaay easier than I thought it would be! The new modern door makes such a beautiful statement when you approach the home (I’ll be sharing some outdoor pics in an upcoming post!).
To the side of the front door, we completely revamped the existing closet and turned it into more of a mudroom!
We tiled the bench with a beautiful dark basalt tile, added storage drawers underneath, and added new floating shelves and hooks.
It’s a thousand times more inviting now! Saying, “come in… sit down.. take your shoes off on this comfy bench!” lol.
The artwork on the side is something I DIY’d quickly to fill the space and they look perfect!
The beautiful wood and concrete planter is filled with real dirt, but faux greenery, lol. You know how bad I am at keeping plants alive, right?!
And the flooring!!! Guys! I have dreamed about having beautiful herringbone floors for ages now and we finally got it done! We used this faux wood tile and I’m in LOVE!
Plus we have heated floors in there now! My feet are going to thank me when our freezing cold Canadian winters hit!
You can’t see the heated floors underneath, but you can see the awesome thermostat that also shows me the weather on the way out the door :)
The other side of the stunning black front door is just as magical…
Remember the wood feature wall we were planning for our modern entryway? We got it built, puttied, sanded, and painted (thanks to my friend!) all in the last week!
And how good does that faux wood tile look against the green wall?!
A big round mirror and some stylish decor pieces really finished off this space beautifully. Not to mention the narrow console table that we’ve had for ages! We finally gave that piece a makeover and found it a permanent home.
The black hanging planters are also filled with faux greenery (my favourite kind!), in the form of little ferns.
I hope you love the space as much as we do! This One Room Challenge was a real challenge, lol. But we’re more than thrilled with our new modern entryway!
