Rustic Glam Fall Entryway

A big thanks to CJ Affiliate’s VIP Content Service and Pier 1 for sponsoring this post. As always, all content and opinions are 100% my own.

Our house has a mullet floor plan.

You know… business in the front, party in the back?

That’s what I called it when Robert and I were choosing our floor plan with our home builder three years ago. The back of our house, where the living room and kitchen are is chaotic all the time- toys tossed around, dishes leftover from breakfast sometimes (always) sitting on the counter, stacks of laundry piled on our stairs.

But the front of our house, the entryway, that’s where we look fancy. Because that’s our home’s first impression, where even if the rest of our home looks like we just hosted a frat party, at least our hallway bench looks welcoming.

It’s where I love having extra fun with our fall decor because it’s my unspoken way of telling our guests, “We’re thankful to have you.”

Ever since I found this old wagon bench on Craigslist a couple of years ago, I’ve loved playing with the decor around it for the changing seasons.

This year, I gave it the decorating version of stillettos and lipstick. Glitter, baby. πŸ˜‰

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you know the word “glam” doesn’t show up very often around here. But I’ve had such a love for copper this fall that I went metallic crazy at Pier 1 to spiff up our entryway.

I blame it on this cute copper glass pumpkin that followed me home.

I usually like incorporating lots of opposites in our home- balancing feminine with masculine, dark with light, glam with rustic.

So these black lanterns balanced out my glam copper pumpkin with the rustic I love.

Magnolia is one of my favorite types of greenery to put in our house, so this metallic magnolia leaf garland was too pretty to pass up.

And to change things up a little bit from my Irish Blessing Sign, I found this dramatic feather art that just screamed Thanksgiving to me. But it’s not so “Thanksgiving-y” that I can’t display it year-round.

I always have some sort of seasonal wreath hanging above our bench too, and this metallic fall wreath worked perfectly with the rest of the copper details.

Since we have a lot of teal and mint throughout the rest of our house, I decided to throw in some blue tones over here too.

I keep stealing this blue throw blanket from over here to snuggle up with on our couch because it’s soooo super soft. I think I’m ready to pick up a whole bunch of them for Christmas presents this year.

So now, if you ever visit our house, and you walk through the front door and think we’re all fancy… it might be a little bit deceiving.

The glam stops here… unless you count the glamorous tiara-wearing princess-loving 4 year-old running around.

Do you have a mullet kind of house too? The chaotic party in the back with the good intentioned welcoming entryway in the front? No matter what state our house is in though, I’m so thankful for the family and friends that take the time to visit us. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Shove a pile of laundry aside and make yourself at home. πŸ˜‰

  1. This feather print is perfect! I can’t tell what its background color is…dark charcoal gray…a dark navy…a blue-gray… what does it look like in person? Or does it change with the light?
    You have a lovely foyer. Inviting, warm yet the base colors easily move among the season. Nice work!

  2. SO pretty…we just moved into our “forever home” over the summer…big modern farmhouse and I am struggling with the HUGE ceilings in the entry way…need to really fill that space…

    1. Thanks! I know what you mean. Large ceilings always seem to make furniture feel shrimpy. Adding long curtains, large scale art, and large light fixtures tends to help a little bit with making it balance.

  3. This space is amazing! I love everything you did, but I especially love the bench and wreath. They look great in that space!

  4. I love the copper!! I want to bring in a few copper accents to our kitchen for the holidays! Our entry is tiny and feeds right into our dining room and living room, so there’s no hiding our messes. ?

    1. Thanks, Jordan! I found some dollar store accents for our kitchen table recently and spray painted them copper too. Love how much warmth it adds. πŸ™‚

  5. While I love your autumn decor in your entryway, I can barely see anything but that bench. Love, love, love that bench – no matter what decor is displayed with it!

  6. I love your fall entryway! Especially the copper leaves and the yellow and white wreath- they look so seasonal and happy, but without using the usual oranges and reds. And your description of your house made me laugh! I wish we had a mullet house, but it’s more one of those walk in the front door and see everything at once (mess and all) type of houses. Thanks for the entryway inspiration!

    1. Thanks, Mary! Haha! I don’t care for mullets as my personal style, but mullet floor plans are the bomb diggity. πŸ˜‰

  7. The hallway looks so inviting, and I’m sure your guests feel instantly at home. I’m, however, very interested in the way the walls are done, the wainscoting in particular. Can you give us a “how to” or pictures of it in progress?

  8. Very warm and welcoming! You are a “motivational blogger!” You inspire many of us to get projects done! Happy Autumn! On another note, my daughter and her husband are going to be building a house in the near future. They have been researching and struggling with floor plans. Could you show the floor plans for the first and second floors of your house and garage? They, too, want the openness of your kitchen, dining, and living room…Thank you for considering this request.

    1. Sometimes Lauren gets behind in answering comments so I’ll help her out. To find her floor plans go to the “Search this site” search bar (upper right hand side) and search “House Tour”. It came up for me in the second row of archived posts. The downstairs is in one post and the upstairs is in another. I hope this helps! Building a new house is so exciting but overwhelming at the same time! Enjoy!

  9. I so wish we had a mullet house! When you come in, you walk into the living room. From there you can see the dining room, living space, and if doors are open you can see into a couple bedrooms (we have a teeny house). All messes are visible for all guests lol

    1. Open concept floor plans are great in theory, but I was worried about that exact same problem when we were choosing ours. Shows all over HGTV like knocking down every single wall in the main living space and I’m over here like… I want to hide our crazy a little bit. Haha! πŸ˜‰

  10. I LOVE that bench! I’ve been scouring Craig’s list like a madwoman! Lol. This space always looks so beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Candy! I’ve been scouring all over the internet for a similar one because I’m always asked about it. Some furniture company somewhere needs to hurry up and manufacture this bench already. It’d sell like hot cakes.
