You know how we’re always saying that entryways are a perfect spot for walls that wow? This before and after certainly highlights what a difference design in one’s entryway can make! It was a lot of work (and a lot of math) but you might find inspiration for your own entryway with this neat 3D wall pattern idea.

From Dana:

After seeing the graphic pattern Burberry is sporting in their stores, I immediately snapped a picture and told my husband, “I want this in our house somewhere!” We recently moved and our new entry provided the perfect place to take the Burberry pattern and put our own twist on it.

Crazy math skills were involved, to which I give my husband ALL the credit. We’re talking pythagorean theorem people…do YOU remember how to do it? I don’t! We started with the center wall then decided to “extend” the pattern by using stripes on the connecting walls. This created visual flow and provided easy transitions into the connecting spaces.

We used 3/4 ” MDF in order to achieve depth and dimension. A nail gun was used to attach each piece then the finishing work involved filling nail holes, caulking, priming and painting. Using the existing wall color but changing the sheen adds a little visual interest. Paint color used was Benjamin Moore’s, Natural Cream OC-14, in eggshell and gloss finishes.

See exactly how Dana and her husband pulled off this incredible wall pattern feat on her blog!

Thank you Dana!
