Entry Hall Redo

When you pass through our front door, you walk a few steps and are faced with this little vignette:

Pretty boring, right?   I like the sunburst mirror (a fairly inexpensive find – only $70 on Wayfair), and the bamboo table fits on the small wall, but talk about needing some accessories!

Looks better, but I didn’t love the dark brown color of the bamboo table, and the boxwood pots didn’t do anything to help the situation.

In other news, today felt like Spring!  We made our way to Blue Hill Farm at Stone Barns in search of outdoor adventure.  It’s a magnificent place – they’ve got the whole farm-to-table vibe going.

Our son saw farm animals and helped hoe a garden.  And he engaged in a staring contest with this huge pig:

It was a special day!    Happy (almost) Spring!
