It’s a proven fact that shapes with soft edges are more pleasing for the eye, so I took this theme and ran home (literally, to my house) with it when it came time to updating my entryway. Now, my house was built in the 1920’s, but over the years has been chopped and changed and loved to become a somewhat Spanish with a Scandinavian twist hybrid or Spandinavian, as I like to call it. Sitting at my dining table, with a cup of coffee and this view makes me infinitely happy. I’m clearly not alone in my love of circles, there’s 800 Pinterest boards to prove it! See below for some of my faves.
