Jillian Harris Home Tour Series Entryways

Good morning! Today marks the third post in my Home Tour Series!! I kicked this home tour series off with our Spare Bathroom then Leo’s Playroom, and today, I’m sharing all of the details of our entryways with you!!

So, there are two entryways that I want to share with you today, and we will start things off with our back entry! We had extra space in the back near our spare bathroom, I wanted this space to be functional and I really didn’t have a design plan for it until the very end but it didn’t take long for us to realize that we needed an entry here for people to access the spare bathroom (aka the pool bathroom!). This space was originally pretty bare and it didn’t have much personality, and being that it was the “pool bathroom entrance” I wanted to liven it up a bit so I decided to paint the door a BRIGHT yellow!!

I found this bright yellow paint at Benjamin Moore Kelowna and it’s called Hannah Banana! I think it’s the perfect colour for this space as it’s not CRAZY bright but it still adds a fun pop of colour and I think it goes great with the tile!! Speaking of the tile, this is Atlas 1 from the Cement Tile Shop, not only is this in our back entryway but it also flows through to our laundry room and our pantry as well.

The bench above is from one of my favourite stores here in Kelowna called Lakehouse, it’s filled to the brim with beautiful decor and home goods!! I also wanted to create a feature wall in this space to add some texture which is why I decided to cover one entire wall in shiplap from Woodtone! You’ll also notice we designated this area for Nacho, this is where we like to keep his food and water and we also made sure to install a locking doggy door here for him so he can come and go in the yard as he pleases … however, this hasn’t stopped him from running up to the front door and scratching my beautiful periwinkle doors at the front … or running in with muddy paws and jumping on my freshly washed white sheets ??‍♀️ … it’s a work in progress!

Moving on to the front entryway … I have ALWAYS wanted a foyer as our last house had absolutely NO ROOM for coats, purses or shoes so people would always end up putting them on our dining room table or draping their coats over the couch and shoes would be cluttering the entrance way and it drove me CRAZY!! So, in this house, I made sure that we had a designated area with lots of hooks (ours are from Pottery Barn!) for coats and purses and lots of room for shoes!! I had planned that this entrance would mainly be used for our guests so it wouldn’t become bombarded and cluttered with all of OUR things which is why we also made sure to include a ton of storage and hooks for our things in the garage … more on this space to come!

We did run into a little issue with the hooks in our front entrance though, it seems as though when they were installed they weren’t installed with any backing so unfortunately a couple of them have fallen out … let this be a lesson to you, if you are installing hooks make SURE to have backing on them so they are strong and can hold up a few coats and purses!!

I went for the colour “Athabasca” by Benjamin Moore for our front doors because I wanted to do something a bit different … trust me, it still throws me off when I think that I actually painted my doors blue and yellow but I REALLY love it!! I’m also a big sucker for wainscotting … I FREAKIN love it so I knew it was a “must-have” when it came to our home, the folks at Metrie did our wainscotting and you’ll probably notice the V Groove on the ceiling, this is from Woodtone! A funny story about the V Groove is that I had brought it in to be painted … I was originally going to go all out here and actually paint it navy blue but as I was choosing a colour, they had been sanding it down and I absolutely LOVED the way it looked so I asked them to sand a few more spots down to give it that weathered look and that’s exactly how we left it!!

The doors in both entries are from Plygem and the hardware is from Emtek, our flooring is from PurParket, the beautiful pendant light is from Visual Comfort & Co with lighting from Sylvania and the wall mounted hurricanes are from Pottery Barn. Sitting on top of the gorgeous table by Urban Roots Furniture are a couple of items from The Cross, such as the big wreath on a stand, the smaller wreath on a stand the mirror and florals from A New Leaf Floral Design! Oh! And the hand-woven area rug at our front door is from Wayfair!!
