Best Spaces: The Entry

January 18, 2019

Happy Friday everyone!

Welcome to our design blog.

Today, let's talk about the entryway of your home. From having just a few hooks inside the front door to having a grand foyer, the entry is an essential space in the home. Here are ten entryways that we love!

 

 

# 1

The entryway is the handshake and the hug of your home, so make it comfortable by providing functional areas like seating to take off your shoes and somewhere to hang your keys.

Architectural elements can have a dramatic first impression. You can achieve a similar effect with a statement chandelier, too.

A properly styled entry table is the key to a balanced entryway! Mirrors, trays, lamps, or plants grouped into small vignettes are your go-to when it comes to finishing your entry table.

Pillows, blankets, and accessories transform this ordinary entryway into to a cozy, welcoming space. The open shelving under the bench is a great storage solution.

As we know from life, first impressions are everything! Just as you wouldn't skip a proper introduction, pay attention to what your entryway is saying about your home. Keep these tips in mind as you consider the spaces in your home and how they can be improved!
