when grosgrain and upholstery tacks get married…

I’ve been wanting to pimp my entry for a while now, especially after I saw this image…
Then doing my usual morning Pinterest scan I saw this image (thank you Elizabeth)

Bam!  It’s not as pretty as the green but I do love it so…

The upholstery tacks I had are small, maybe one day I’ll upgrade to a 1” but for now it’s just fine…

Here’s where I need some help…I didn’t do around the front door because I’m not sure whether to paint it all black, frame and door, or go ahead and do trim and tacks…
thoughts?

You rocked it. I say yes to the trim around the front door. When you do that, and paint the door black it will tie it all together and no one will leave your front hall. You've got to do a tutorial on this. I'm dying to know how you got your corners to look so damn good.
