This charming home had a problem common to many Hintonburg homes, the front door opened directly into the living room. No front closet and a tiny square of tile to land on. We build a 2/3 wall to create an entrance area without blocking the light from the front window. This small change allows for a large area of tile for boots, bikes and pets as well as a wall for hooks and a wardrobe for storage.
The tile is a wood grained ceramic which was laid in a herringbone pattern with a border. Sturdy brass hooks handle items used daily while an IKEA wardrobe keeps extra coats and footwear out of sight.
The living room side of the 2/3 wall was covered in a whimsical ostrich wallpaper. The grey and yellow colour scheme is young and fresh and because this is a lady's space, we added some glam with a gold glided mirror.
