Favorite Room Feature: The Pursuit of Style

Hi dollfaces! Today we have another fabulously talented gal who is strutting her striped walls right in front of our faces. Lindsay from The Pursuit of Style is one of my go to daily reads for many reasons. 1. She is fabulous. 2. Her name is Lindsay. 3. She spells it with an "a". 4. She is killing it. Today she is sharing her favorite space with us, her entryway. Ooooohhhh ahhhhhh. Like I don't adore anything with a black and white stripe. Let's be honest. 


Hi all, I'm Lindsay from The Pursuit of Style and I'm excited to be sharing my favorite room with you today! I hope Lindsay doesn't mind, but I'm using 'room' a little liberally because my favorite room is actually our entryway.

When we first moved in, the narrow, l-shaped entry with its beige walls and ceiling was entirely forgettable and totally not my style. I decided to use the small size to my advantage and make a big impact with black and white cabana stripes. They say first impressions are everything, right?
P.S a million thanks to my dad who patiently measured and taped off and each and every one of those stripes!
A vintage brass pineapple welcome sign greets you as you enter.
A pair of Christian Chaize beach prints add a dose of color. I love how they pop against the black and white background. They're the first thing you see when you enter and always make me smile!
Scalamandre zebra umbrellas and other rainy day essentials are at the ready in a vintage ceramic urn.
So there you have it, from beige to bold black and white! I hope you've enjoyed a peek into our home. Thanks to Lindsay for inviting me!

  15. This room is just stunning. I think this would be great for a mudroom as well. All the accessories, the pineapple welcome sign, the beach portrait, blend in so well.
