This one has been around for a few years now, but I’m still so infatuated with the whole look of Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James stores. The Nashville location was designed by Pencil and Paper Co. (and photographed by Leslee Mitchell). Although it’s a retail space, there are a lot of good takeaway ideas. I’m attempting to pull several of the elements and scale down the design to help you envision how it could translate into a picture perfect porch–and entryway–for your home.
-Did you know you can order a canopy in a box? Could be a cute idea for a side entry door. . .
-A glossy exterior door (in any color, really), dressed up with a brass door knocker.
-A pair of faux boxwoods in classic planters is no-maintenance and never goes out of style.
-A navy (faux) grasscloth peel and stick wallpaper sets a dramatic backdrop for a gallery wall. Consider papering only the first wall you see (like in image below) and painting adjacent walls a bright white.
-A smaller version of the lighting used over the counter in the store would still make quite the statement in an entry.
-A blue, white and yellow gallery wall can be pieced together using a combo of art prints, digital downloads and even diy abstract paintings. I’d keep frames white and add a touch of gold with a simple mirror.
-A tucked away ottoman and striped rug add more pattern.
-Keep accessories simple and light.
