When it comes to your home, why not make a memorable entrance? An entryway tells a story, setting the scene for what is to come. From the minute your guests walk in the door, you want them to be wowed. Are you looking to create a glamorous moment or a serene escape? This is your opportunity to leave a lasting impression.
It’s important to have a cohesive vision from the outset. Then, incorporate various decorative elements that are not only beautiful but functional. A space can dictate what you put in it, and there are a few things to consider when decorating an entry. To create a focal point, try pairing a console with a mirror above it. A table provides a surface area to place keys, family photos, and decorative accessories. To open up spaces, a mirror reflects light and allows for a last-minute touch-up. Need a spot to linger? A bench or chair provides a convenient perch. To tie the entire design scheme together, consider every surface. Walls can introduce color, and a rug underfoot adds texture. When natural light is scarce, lighting can do wonders. To incorporate my client’s love of travel or art, I mix varying decorative accessories and books along with flowers to bring the outdoors in. Lacking space? Corral umbrellas in a beautiful stand and use wall hooks for coats and hats. Your foyer plays a starring role, so why not make the first impression the best one possible?
