Lamp for entry table AND what to do with wall going up the stairs
I have two questions:
First, the entry way:
So this mirror was originally going in my office. I've since changed the vibe in there to MCM - and this obviously doesn't fit that style
I had the mirror painted (used to be gold leaf-ish) - so the white is non-negotiable.
We originally had a mirror there that matched the entry piece - it was much smaller in scale. We had a 24" high mercury glass lamp there, which now doesn't work.
What style table lamp and how tall?
(some of you may say no lamp -- but we really like having a light there so we don't have to have the hanging fixture on all the time...)
The large black frame can find a new home if you think it doesn't work there -- but I have black framed photos along the hallway (see second question photos)
(note: door to garage is to the right of the mirror/chest -- Front door is on the wall to the left of the mirror/chest)
Here are two views of the space:
Turn around from the mirror and here are the stairs and our hallway to the back of the house.
We really love the b/w photos along this wall -- but I'm at a loss for what to do up the stairs.
Was thinking large identical frames with
#1: photos of our boys OR
#2: photos that my son took (he is very artsy and has taken some beautiful photos of architecture, nature from our travels) --
Would you do b/w? or color?
Do I stick with black frames? Can I switch to white?
LOTS of questions here...
Thanks for the input!
