Bright & Welcoming: Colorful Entryways

You've organized your entryway, hung hooks, and no longer leave piles of mail sitting there. Still, it needs something to make it more interesting. Why not try a cheerful, welcoming wash of color?

  1. An ethereal, gorgeous blue in a foyer designed by Ruthie Sommers.
  2. An elegant green lacquered hallway that could be mimicked with high gloss paint.
  3. Navy blue looks classic and chic, especially paired with a bronze light and campaign table.
  4. A punchy, vibrant orange that warms the whole room.
  5. A two-tone wall in aubergine and lavender is gorgeously rustic.
