IMG_5287I’ve been slowly, but surely, updating my apartment. This week I’ve been focusing on my entryway. A stunning entryway table would be ideal, but seeing as I live in a small NYC apartment practical storage is a must. Keeping my budget in mind, two Container Store shoe organizers side by side were the way to go.  They serve as both storage and a bench. Not to mention, they are a great way to show off my shoe collection.

IMG_5297In addition to my shoe organizers turned bench I’ve been spending my days adorning my walls with Tempaper. I went with a modern gray and white pattern that travels from my dining room nook  (photos coming soon) down to my front door. I always have to incorporate a little gold into my designs so a framed chalkboard completes my new, improved and budget friendly entryway.

    Cute! I dream of having an entry way, too but in the mean time I’m just faking it! And I love your background (I think it’s new).

    I love the color and pattern of your wallpaper! That’s a great idea to use the shoe organizer in that spot. Perfect for a small space, and so functional!

    Your new entryway looks great! I need to re-think my entry, or rather, lack thereof. I’ve been considering those shoe holders for a while and I really like them in your apartment.
