Today is an exciting day! I’m sharing my summer entryway decor with you, and the best part is a new wallpaper reveal! I wasn’t sure when I would actually go ahead and install wallpaper in here, but here we are!

Our entryway has an entirely new look swathed in this gorgeous faux blue grasscloth, and we couldn’t love it more. Perfect for summer decor, or any time of year, but especially right now it feels so refreshing.

I’ve gotten a lot of questions about this paper on Instagram, I’ve linked it at the bottom of my post if you’d like to see it.

I’m full swing into decorating our home for summer, I recently shared my summer inspiration board and summer bedroom as well. 

Next week, I’m sharing our summer living room and then our kitchen with a fun update as well, so stay tuned!

My summer entryway decor is very simple, with a focus on my blue and white chinoiserie pieces mixed in with natural wood tones, accented with a few white touches…a breezy and light coastal look.

Below you can see a little peek of what I’ll be sharing next week in my summer living room post.

More gorgeous blues as always, bold patterned pillows and majesty palm plants for a beautiful, vibrant coastal look as well.I started thinking about wallpapering this room a few years ago and wasn’t quite sure what direction to go in.

Since our main living area is open concept, everything is visible from wherever you’re standing.

I decided on a faux grasscloth similar to the one in our kids’ bath, but this one is a slightly different tone. We love it so much.I wanted to use real grasscloth in here, but couldn’t find any paper that was light enough in color.

Soft blue with a little punch was my vision and everything I found was either navy or simply too dark. I love the results of this faux grasscloth, it has texture and dimension and the shade of blue is perfect.You may recognize our console table if you’ve been reading with me for a while.

It used to be brown and I refinished it in a light grey chalk paint when I shared a small makeover reveal in here. We brought this table back into our entryway and moved our white console/desk, that was here for about a year, into my new home office.

Moving furniture around from room to room is pretty common in our home!

I also rotated rugs once again, and pulled out our grey vintage-inspired rug from my reveal a few years back.

I’m in the business of inspiring you to create a home you love, so rotating rugs, accessories and furniture is often on my decorating agenda!One of the things I love about this wallpaper is how it frames the other spaces so beautifully when looking into them.

It’s gorgeous against the cool grey walls in the dining room.
And of course looking into the living room as well.

It makes all of the white trim come to life and really pop.

I talk about my beautiful mother often in my posts, and how much she influenced me as a decorator throughout my life. She was always my ultimate inspiration and still is…I love how much this room makes me think of her now, it has her signature written all over it.

I know she’s looking down on this room and is absolutely in love with it.

I can even hear her saying it to me when I walk by…it makes me so happy :)
I recently ordered the two beautiful pots you see on the bottom shelf of my console table, with their gorgeous cherry blossom motif.

The size is perfect for a plant or a large bunch of flowers, or just by themselves!

I know I’ll get a ton of use out of these beauties.Thank you for joining me and reading about my summer entryway decor with me. I hope you’re inspired to decorate for summer with a few simple pieces – blue and white is always a good thing! Layer in some natural wood tones and a few white accessories to add some brightness. Keep things simple! And why not wallpaper a room while you’re at it?? Have fun and enjoy! xo

  1. Such a lovely space! Maybe I missed it, but what is the name of the faux grasscloth wallpaper? Wayfair links are taking me to all wallpaper, not a specific product.

    I used the Scott Living faux peel and stick in a small bathroom and the humidity is wrecking it, making it curl and peel at the edges. I’d love to redo it with actual wallpaper.
