This year I was asked to partake in Del Mar’s Home for the Holidays Design Challenge! Del Mar sent me and 4 other bloggers a lamp from their site. I received Annaleigh by Kichler and was ask to design my entry way in the holiday spirit featuring this lamp.
Due to the colorful nature of my home I don’t tend to decorate in the typical green/red/gold holiday color story. For this spread though I did decide to inject little peeks of it.
Here is my take on a holiday entry way:
Now lets break it down. Since my lamp was almost 28″ high I wanted to make sure my decor wasn’t only on the entry way table, but went up on the wall.
Enter a boxwood wreath that was found at Trader Joe’s for only $10! I used some striped fabric to hang it.
Typically I have an ikat skirted bench underneath my DIY grasscloth covered console,but in order to inject a little holiday green into the space I swapped it out with my emerald painted trunk complete with a leopard cushion we added a while back to provide extra seating.
For the main area I decided to break the space into 3 different sections. My lamp and storage section, a floral centerpiece and a little injection of something different with my blue and white ginger jars.

I’m really happy with how the whole project turned out. It’s been quite the crowd favorite with visitors. Everyone has loved it!
