What I Love About My Entryway:
I love that our home is old (built in 1895 during Grover Cleveland's second term!), and the historic details in the entryway were preserved.
I love the Hygge + West wallpaper! We wanted to warm up the entryway (it had been painted a drab, flat neutral color), so we chose the Otomi print, which is modern and classic at the same time. It's always a conversation piece. We papered the main accent wall and the space under the stairs. Now we just have to paint the rest of the room to complement the paper.
I love the vintage Persian rug and the second-hand furniture (used for our mail, keys). At some point we can add more pieces, but we're on a budget and our kids bump into everything...so we are waiting.
Finally, I love the artwork. My father was a mathematician, but he had a painting hobby. When he passed away my mother gave me two of his paintings - and it makes me happy to have them hanging in our home, inside the entryway where we greet our friends and loved ones.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Entryway:
*Consider the decade your home or rental was built and let that help inform your design decisions/tone.
* Create warmth by adding mirrors that reflect natural light and plants! I estimate that I need about 5 more in this space!
* Like every room in your home, showcase objects that remind you of those you love or are reminders of great experiences.
