look for less: entryway + oasis
I'm obsessed with this space! The white walls and ceiling makes the area feel so open and relaxing! Since not all homes and apartments are equipped with such a nook, I've recreated this look and feel for an entryway, or any bare wall for that matter! Something about mixing jute and sheepskin really warms my soul.
Below, I've shown you how to get this look for a budget (pup not included). Click thru for more!
This space really emphasizes simplicity and texture. We love the mix of the farmhouse wood bench and the jute foot stool. I'm also obsessed with the idea of placing floor planters on a large wood slab! It makes planters feel complete, and in this space it really ties all the wood together. Although this bench doesn't feature a back, it keeps the budget lower by only requiring one sheepskin to cover it. Layer two toss pillows, or keep it simple and open with one. This little oasis is pretty dreamy and only $700 total.

Of course, I'm a big believer in accessories making the room! I suggest planting something tall and ideal for growing indoors. A green dracaena makes a great option as they're big, require little fuss, and even remove toxins! Another space-making accessory is wall-art. Finding affordable art is not always easy. Members of Uprise Art can purchase artwork outright or invest-over-time in monthly installments, for as low as $50/month per piece. This piece by Julie Martini via Uprise Art could be the perfect addition to the space! Hung low, it would be eye-catching, affordable, and the perfect scale. Lastly, these adorable jute baskets from Houzz are the perfect layered catch-alls for this would-be entryway.
