Thank you Sherwin-Williams® for sponsoring this project. Read more about my disclosure policy.
Every year Sherwin-Williams predicts the biggest color trend of the year. I’ve been lucky enough to participate in sharing the Color of the Year with you for the past two years. You’ll see the color selection is always on point. In past years, I painted this modern door and this floral dresser in the Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year.
This year’s Color of the Year is Redend Point SW 9081! This is a beautiful earthy color. It’s a perfect neutral that has beige and blush tones. I love that it can be used with so many different types of decor. It pairs beautifully with blacks, grays, whites, beiges, creams and blushes. Wait until you see how I paired it!
I’m using Redend Point to transform the entryway at my parents’ home. An entryway is one of the most important spaces in a home. It’s what greets you after a long hard day at work. It’s what welcomes your guests. From a functional perspective, it’s where you need a little organization for your keys, shoes and bag. This is a small entryway at 79” x 64” but I am determined to give it a lot of style.
My parents’ entryway is stuck in the… I don’t even know what decade this is? I think my parents have had this mirror and table for at least 20 years. Other than that, there isn’t much character in this.
The plan for this budget entryway refresh
I’m going to make this a statement wall. Here’s the plan for this modern boho entryway:
- Paint: I will be painting this wall Redend Point, the Sherwin-Williams 2023 Color of the Year. Redend Point is a beautiful and unexpected color for an entryway. It has the perfect cozy vibes, with blush and beige undertones. This color is the jumping-off point for this space. Plus, it pairs really well with the existing tiles, which I will not be replacing.
- Console table: I wanted a minimal and unique console table. Plus, most console tables are 48” or larger, but I found this compact console table that has a lot of style! The modern shape pairs really well with the wall color. Although I’ll style it, we can also use it to put shoes on. With my mom’s 6 grandkids, there ends up being a lot of little shoes hanging out here.
- Rug: I added a great neutral rug with a thick texture that can hold up to the Canadian weather. I ordered 2 different rugs, but this gorgeous rug won out with the sage and cream tones. A large rug is a great alternative to ripping out tiles. This size fills the space.
- Accessories: I will add neutral accessories in white, black and beige to make the wall color pop. This includes vases, a dish for keys and some faux plants.
- Mirror: To say I LOVE this arch mirror is an understatement. It’s large and makes a big impact in this space. Since the ceilings are so high, I went with a tall mirror.
Modern Boho Entryway Transformation: The Result
I am thrilled with the result of this entryway I painted in Redend Point.Trust me, it’s a soulful neutral that you can use anywhere, including in a gender neutral nursery, dining room or cozy bedroom. This color celebrates care, connection, and beauty beyond ourselves. It’s such an interesting color as it can transform to a terra cotta, or blush depending on the lighting and what it’s paired with in the space.
I’ve also painted the adjacent walls a fresh coat of Pure White SW 7005. I feel freshening up the white walls allows Redend Point to pop even more as an accent wall! I added some additional earth tones in this space by painting the entryway door Accessible Beige SW 7036. These three colors together give a perfectly calming vibe to my parent’s entryway.
I’ve been having so much fun updating my parents home. I started with a budget bathroom makeover, and have slowly been making over their spaces.
