There is not a lot to this space, but it is there. It is also obvious that it is not in the living room or a part of the dining room. I think small spaces are difficult to decorate because it is so easy to over-fill the area, making it look cluttered. My other issue with decorating is the frosted window next to the door. It’s not really a window made for looking out and enjoying the scenery.So now that you have seen my before, here is my after.
That is all I wanted.
I created a gallery wall using black & white pictures that I have taken (with the exception of two) over the years of various landmarks from the many places we have lived. We have wonderful memories from each place so creating a picture gallery was a great way to remind us of all the adventures we have shared as a family.

While I didn’t get a good photo of it, I first placed a small silver/gray rug that I found at Home Goods on sale. Nothing says “come on in!” more than a welcome mat!
In front of the window I places a cute little chest to house our telephone books, maps and spare house keys. Fresh flowers (I will replace those with a live plant soon), added a wonderful pop of color and a perfect welcoming touch.
I have two more pictures I would like to add to my gallery, but I am undecided whether to extend it any higher. I welcome your opinions.
