Vestibule Tile Inspiration Via Peter Pan Queue


As we begin the *actual* building of our new old farmhouse (gasp!  Could *it* really be happening??  Appears that way, but I don't want to jinx us...), we now begin to move from the 'drawing phase' to more of the real, actual, 'selection phase'.  That's where Nat reigns and is in control of everything from the big decisions to the smallest detail.  We find out more this week in terms of schedule and such and will be updating our farmhouse blog in short order.

But, as I know she reads the blog here, I figure I'll use this platform to try to influence her and persuade her to something I'm keen on:  this tile as seen in the queue in the Peter Pan ride at WDW.

In our house at Hilltop, we have designed a vestibule of sorts right inside the front door before you enter the hallway.  If you've been in a period house from 100 years ago, you know the type.  Think about something like this.  Usually has an 'inside' door and serves as a sort of air lock to keep the house insulated from the comings and goings.

While I'm not sure what Nat is going to do with the door and trim and (hopefully!) transom and sidelights, I'm pretty sure she's going to go with tile.  My preference is to put our last name in the tile, or the house name (Hilltop - like this)  or even the house number (like this), but I think she won't go for that.    Wouldn't [PARRILLO] or [HILLTOP] look awesome?  Maybe I'm biased...

So, my next best preference is to borrow liberally from this inspiration photo above and use small square tiles instead of hexagons.  As for colors?  This one is green and brown and white.  But, I don't have a preference and trust Nat to pick something out that will be great.  Think it would look great, even if the guys at the Dis don't like it (scroll all the way down for a mention of the tile!).
