You know that piece of decor you purchase way too soon in a renovation? The one that will be completely in the way for months and very heavy and difficult to keep moving around? But you’re excited about the new design. You see this irresistible item that may not be available later. This bench was a must and I was never so thankful to set it in place for my clients once this entryway had its facelift. Cool gray walls. White, clean-lined stairwell skirt. Black iron railing. The bench. The pillows. Done. Awwww.. now to sit on it and relax.. except I don’t live there.
