What? You have a fireplace in your entry hall?

Wednesday, 23 November 2011

In my teeny tiny London house, you open the front door and you are right in the middle of the living room. Apart from the general lack of floor space, I miss having an entry to take off my shoes, hang my coat and dump pocket paraphernalia. I miss it even more so after coming across this stunning entry hall, which is not only roomy and light but also has a welcoming fireplace! How fabulous is that? Picture the scene, it’s been a long day at work and the wind outside is biting, you open your front door and are welcomed by a roaring fireplace, you then pour yourself a brandy (because this hallway clearly calls for brandy) and unwind in the comfort and warmth of your entry hall! I suddenly feel very cheated by my lack of entry hall! Oh the possibilities!

  3. I think that's the most fabulous entry way I've seen. I'm dreaming of a house with a fire place, at least in the living room. ;)

  10. I'm such a big fan of entranceways, they are the first impression of your home. And this one is spectacular, very grand! xxx

  11. Oh wow, I couldn't IMAGINE something like that - how AWESOME.

    I've got a really skinny narrow hallway that wouldn't fit a shelf, nevermind a fireplace. I'm going to have to live vicariously through the owners of this wonderful place. x
