Yes, I am still agonizing over what to do with my front hall...and I blame it all on this picture. Somehow or another, I stumbled upon this wonderful image from Decor8's blog. It is from the talented designer Anne Coyle (thank you for letting me know, Peak of Chic!). There is something so appealing about this tableau to me. If you break down the individual elements in this picture, it should not be on my obession list. I am not a fan of yellow or purple. I am also not a fan of lots of 'stuff'. However, the console table is just about perfect to me. It has presence and style, and enough width to pull off a mirror and a framed sketch (as well as a multitude of other items!). Perhaps it is the overall balance of the arrangement that appeals (I love the variation in height of all of the objects). Perhaps it is the lovely sea fan that catches my eye.
I think something like this would be amazing in my entryway. A dark brown/black console (I love that this one has books balanced on the bottom...I have SO many design and art books), my Niermann Weeks mirror, a small painting or sketch, a seafan in a bowl. Combined with a Madeline Weinrib Mandala rug with green and black....maybe it is the hunt I enjoy the most.
