Ochre. Since we moved into our new home I have been keeping the image as an inspiration for our entrance (the long console reminds me of the entrance of Willow Crossley). This morning, while enjoying our coffee, we ruled out the idea of a wardrobe in our entrance, a large space that we also use as a home office (we hide all office-looking things to keep it inviting). First we thought about using a wardrobe to divide the space but it would block the light so a coat stand and a hat rack on one wall was a better idea. A long console table with a large mirror or mirrors above would be ideal. I'm already picturing it beautifully styled like the one above, with a lamp or two, books, decorative objects and fresh flowers. I think the hunt for a console table can begin!
On a personal note: Today is the National Day of Iceland and exactly 16 years ago, A and I got married. Here in the UK it is just another weekday, even a cloudy one and not particularly warm. Later I'm making a cake or a pie but for lunch I served this delicious Zanzibar carrot and coconut soup. Good day in the kitchen!
