The holidays are right around the corner which makes this the ideal time freshen up your entryway! Greeting your guests with a beautiful space sends the warmest of welcomes. The front entry or foyer of your home forms guests’ first impression from the moment they open the front door so ensuring it's both functional and inviting is important.
A few simple changes can turn your simple entryway into a lovely extension of your home! Of course swapping out a rug and sprucing up your lighting will make a big impact, but have you considered the following?
Make a Statement With Art
Great art provides a conversation piece from the get-go! Consider a piece that tells a story or invites you to share how you're connected to it. We love seascapes and landscapes for this very reason. You might also consider an architectural drawing, framed photographs or a piece you fell in love with while traveling!
Lighten Up The Room With Mirrors
Mirrors work wonders in small spaces like entryways. Consider adding an oversized mirror over a table or creating a gallery of smaller scale mirrors! Warm the space up with warmer wood tones or bring in a fun coastal texture like bamboo or rattan. You'll love how the light bounces off the mirrors and makes your space feel open and airy!
I'm having a moment with pretty entryway seating. Make the most of your space by creating additional seating in your entryway. A small bench or chair will add style as well as convenience to your space. Form and function at it's finest! This is another great way to bring in a bit of texture or upholstery! When used day-to-day it's wonderful to have a place to sit while you put your shoes, when you're entertaining a bench or seat is the perfect spot for guests to park their bags!
