The entry walls are painted a soft green color and a graphic-patterned rug is placed on the floor to help warm the space.
New pieces are incorporated into the space including a light fixture, table lamp, mirror and cushion for the existing bench. The old plastic bin is replaced with a small cabinet.
A credenza is given a unique look with metallic tape used for fixing duct work. The tape is adhered to the top, sides and drawer fronts and crinkled up as it's applied to create a textural effect. Black shoe polish is rubbed on to knock down the shine and emphasize the texture.
