My House | Entry Walls Reveal

If you have not noticed by last weeks posts, I have been slightly obsessed with white walls.
So I bit the bullet and put it on the wall!

Before: 
I am sure this in not the typical reveal you are used to!  HA!  But... I LOVE it!  One of the things I love about this house is that we have an entry way.  The only down side is that there is no windows so it can be very dark most of the day.  I never thought the stenciling made it look small or dark, but now that it is white... HUGE difference!
P.S. These pics do not do the room justice!
I know it seems a little boring, but I don't think I am done.  This is the perfect space to add some texture... just not exactly sure what direction I am headed yet.

While painting I did struggle a little bit on where my stopping point should be.  If you follow me on Instagram {@savvydesign} then you saw me post this question.  Should I stop the paint in the entry at the bullnose {I HATE those corners BTW} or should I wrap the white around the bump outs and finish in the living room?  It was a 50/50 split.

I decided to wrap the white.  Eventually I will be adding some sort of chair rail and wainscoting to the living/dining room and painting the upper wall a different color, and I think this will be the best flow for the space and blend in that architectural detail when it is installed.

What would you have done?
Stop in the entry or wrap into the living room?

Looks clean and fresh and while the stencils were fun, they can quickly become outdated. Have you thought of adding a front door with some glass to allow some light into the area..even just a small light in the upper half of the door would help.
As always, thanks for sharing.

Loved the stencil but I imagine it could get old looking at it daily. I think the wrap was a great idea!
