This bench was actually pre existing in the space. White was painted green, and topped with a bench cushion and a few toss pillows. I agree that it is a nice use of the space! It is approximately 16" deep with each arm of the "L" at 3', 3'-6" respectively from the outside corner.

Thank you. The images are fashionably dressed ladies from circa 1890 from old bookplates.

This house is featured as "residential project" in my profile. I have photos of a bedroom suite and a family room. This house is an ongoing project, and I hope to have more photos to post in the near future.

Neutral paint - I love this house! Did you use the same neutral paint color on the walls throughout the main part of the house? I'm interested in the color you used in this entry as well as that great family room with the built-ins.

I think it is a Stark or Stanton carpet. We used to have it in a girl's bedroom. It comes in a floral pattern or floral trellis.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Heather Freeman Design Co. added this to Make the Most of Your Entryway
Can you imagine having a reading nook like this one in your home? I think more books on my "to read" list would find themselves finished if I had a spot like this. To modernize the look of traditional trim and crown molding, consider painting it light gray. Here, it's paired with white walls to draw attention toward the gorgeous detail in the wood. Built-in seating utilizes the space under a staircase. The textiles work well together despite varied organic and geometric patterns, since they all have the same shade of coral.
Carve out a spot for a gracious pause. Another way to fill an empty corner in the entryway is with a cozy bench. Either built in or freestanding, amply proportioned seating feels luxurious in the entryway — and is practical for removing mucky shoes, too.
Foyer staircases provide some interesting and challenging corner spaces. Here's another way to place a bench for taking off shoes. (Just wondering: Does anyone else keep picturing Mr. Rogers coming in and getting into his comfy shoes and cardigan whenever I mention taking off shoes on an entry bench?)
