Vaulted Entryway
Kerry ChaiNovember 29, 2012
I'm moving into my new home in a few weeks. When you walk through the front door, it's a big vaulted entryway that goes up to the second floor. There's a coat closet to your immediate right, and the "roof" of that coat closet makes for a weird "shelf" about 3 ft by 4 ft that you're staring at when you reach the second floor landing. Any ideas for decorating this area? Right now the current owner has a ficus tree there, but I wanted something else - and just about anything you stick up there is going to be a massive dust magnet. Thoughts? I'll add a picture to this post as soon as we take possession next week ;-)

One day people will start demanding that these ledges be left out of the construction plans. My friend filled hers with a miniature "ice cream" chair and had a florist do a floral arrangement on the seat. Cute, but she had a housekeeper! What's your style? Farmhouse: old farm implements, collectibles: miniature children's furniture, and then there's baskets, or you can ignore it until something really strikes your fancy. I would focus on the entry and ignore the ledge/roof. If you do the rest of it right, people may never notice the issue unless they go upstairs and look down.

I had a ledge like that in a townhouse I owned. What a pain. There was a window on the far side of it too. If I had to do it again today, I would hang a curtain right at the edge of the ledge so it didn't look like a ledge at all.

I agree with deco above. Seems no matter what people put up there, it looks forced and fussy. You're better off dressing the window with simple, elegant drape panels and leave it at that.
