Wichita Falls Entry

Pleasant & Cheerful Welcome

We love this beautiful and refreshing Wichita Falls entryway by Jana Bek Designs. Feminine and soft, there is a perfect mix of neutral with glam, which makes the whole space seem so relaxed and easy. We love the eclectic assortment of accessories, and all of the fresh blooms placed in various places to keep the space lively. Of this space, Jana herself says “we wanted to create a bright, happy space with pops of color and texture that didn’t compete with the wallpaper.” We think that she was entirely successful in this endeavor; the colors and prints of the furnishings all compliment the wallpaper, but don’t overwhelm. We love some of the statement pieces she used, such as the leather cocktail ottoman paired with aqua sofa and striped chairs. The tufted ottoman brings a masculine edge that evens the space out, while the gorgeous tiling in the foyer grounds the wallpaper and keeps the room sophisticated, instead of overwhelmingly feminine. To recreate a gorgeous look similar to this one, see some of our inspired product picks below, and have fun in creating your own whimsical space!

“Since Meghan (the client) often uses the space to photograph clients, the pieces needed to be easily mobile & we wanted it to be elegant but approachable. With aqua, grays, & pops of coral, this foyer is airy & effortlessly chic. I’m seriously envious of her entire entry!”

Tips from the Designer:


Entryway:

 

  • I’m a huge fan of indoor/outdoor rugs in entries, dining rooms, & other more “formal” spaces. They have come so far in terms of look & feel, often one cannot distinguish that they are “outdoor.” We used a Dash & Albert runner in this entry – I cant say enough good things about their rugs!
  • I love layering patterns (here the wallpaper & runner) just make sure to mix it up! A floral pairs so well with a chevron or stripe; geometric patterns can be trickier. If the wallpaper was a trellis pattern I would go with a solid rug or natural woven jute rug with an interesting weave.
Open Floorplan:

 

  • As you can see in this Wichita Falls home, varying shades of aqua & coral are incorporated into the entry, foyer, & living room. In spaces with open floor plans, having a pop of color in your palette in the connecting spaces makes for a harmonious flow. Do not worry about color matching; just hints of hue will make the spaces relate.
  • We used the same paint color (Sherwin William’s Pearly white) in the foyer & living room; I’m a big fan of using the same color in open floor plan spaces as well. This will also help to connect the dots within the space.
Living Room:

 

  • I think this room showcases beautifully how to layer materials. Both the console & coffee table ottoman are wood, but because one is white washed & the other is natural brown, they complement each other rather than compete. We layered on the gold metal tables & bought varying shapes (two square & one round), so that they would coordinate without being boring. Make use of layers in a space; it keeps things interesting, as long as it’s not so busy that it doesn’t tie together.
  • Drapes always add a finished element to a space; these are beautiful drapes, but never underestimate how much an iron can improve even the most basic of drapes! I love dark iron curtain rods because they look nice with silver or gold accents as seen in this space. They always help to pull a space together and make it look polished.
