Completed This Space: Entryway Vignette

So a week or two ago I asked y’all to chime in on how I should (quite literally) top-off my freshly painted, mid-century entryway bookshelf. Thank you to everyone who left comments, but… I’m sorry, I ignored all of your suggestions. beforeandafter2I didn’t mean to! There were a lot of great options: a sunburst mirror, faux taxidermy, a welcome sign, etc. BUT I came across something that was just too good to pass up:vignette3Isn’t she amazing? (Yes, it’s a she.) I just happened to stumble across this awesome—and cheap!—oversized mirror on Craigslist. I don’t even remember what I was originally searching for, but once I saw it, I knew it had to be mine. I talked the seller down almost 50 percent, fought the rush-hour traffic up to Rogers Park, and brought my baby home safely. That shape… sighhhh. She matches the new dining room pendant lamp perfectly.photoSometimes my mid-century modern furniture, especially the bar, gives the space a masculine vibe, so I’m loving the hints of glam the mirror and pendant are lending without being overly feminine.vignetteFINALSo given that this “entryway” is actually part of my dining room (I just call it an entryway because it’s the first thing you see when you open the door. I feel like now I’m finally making a good first impression!), does it change your opinion about the rugs?
