But, after taking measurements, I decided against it mainly because our entry has a very narrow front hallway that leads to the kitchen (which gets a lot of traffic) and if we were to install the flat panel wainscoting, it would chew into the space making the hallway even more narrow.
I am now considering doing a chair rail which won't chew into valuable space.
The plan is to paint the chair rail and wall space below the chair rail in BM White Dove and then do a textured wallpaper above the chair rail as a nod to classic design. I have my eyes fixated on Ralph Lauren's herringbone textured wallpaper.
I plan on continuing the chair rail into our living room which flanks our entry. I think the challenge is going to ensure that the chair rail fits seamlessly into the design and doesn't feel forced.
In regards to the color palette in our entry, I want to play off the drapery fabric that'll be in our dining room - John Robshaw's Prasana American Beauty that you see immediately to your left when you walk into our entry.
Some of these items might be a pipe dream, but I say start big and I'll see where it goes….;)
