before and after

before & after: riley’s striped entryway

by Grace Bonney

lord knows i love a stripe, so i was happy to see d*s reader riley’s stripey entryway makeover. deciding that her entry hallway “lacked personality”, riley decided to make a statement with gray stripes and a chandelier she decided to paint red. the rug was handed down from riley’s mom and added the final touch. i personally love the little nook by the door with the table- i would love to have a little nook like that for keys and such. great work, riley! click here to read more about her makeover.
