Plans for the Entryway

Hi friends,

So I mentioned before that we are planning some entryway updates this summer.

A new front door, window, and lighting are on the menu. Right now the trim is not to my liking so the plan is to change it up as well.

Here is what the hallway looks like now:

We are planning to add a new fibreglass wood grain door. I was waffling on the wood and considering a creme colored door. Or perhaps a grey / blue. Wood is so elegant though. It would be a simple door similar to the one we installed in our previous house

This time we would have wood grain but otherwise I want the same clean modern look. I couldn't find a picture of exactly what I wanted but here is what a similar door would look:

Too dark? And yes - I may have added some bling :)

Okay - more to follow on this topic.

I leave you today with this amusing item.

thanks for stopping by!

Pretty Balloons

Hi friends,

Hope the weekend has been good to you. It was lovely casual weekend here at Casa Marshall. We spend some quality time playing tennis and swimming and got a few things done around the house.

One of things we talked about was the minor renovations that I am looking forward to sharing. Nothing epic - just refining what we have. I hope to have more on our plans this week.

In the meantime, I've rounded up a pretty collection of inspiring art from Etsy. It's all about balloons and dreaming. The perfect theme for warm summer nights.

Thanks for stopping by!
