While the entryway isn’t technically considered to be an actual room of the home, it often becomes a much-used hub as it collects jackets, keys, mail and shoes. As much attention as this area receives, we are thinking of giving our entries a small, welcoming face lift – and what better way than with vibrant paint or unique wallpaper?

We all know that paint can do wonders, but these inspiring shots of bold entryways go way beyond successfully creating a great first impression to the home. As small as some entries are, choosing an over-the-top color, such as the neon pink paint in the Jonathan Berger design, can make for a fun statement when you want to experiment with color.
