Budget Basics: Colorful Entryway Essentials
Gray winter days! Come home to a jolt of color as you reorganize your entryway and landing strip this month. Just one of these budget-friendly accessories is enough to revamp a tired space — or go whole-hog with a cacophony of color:
1. Simple Lacquer Hooks – $8 each at West Elm
These colorful discs are sold individually and available in 4 colors — choose just the number you need and the color(s) you want for a custom entryway solution.
2. Chilewich Shag Doormat – $45 at DWR
This is a top-quality doormat that is easy to vacuum or hose down and will add a pop of color to your doorway. Available in Green or Orange. Larger sizes also available.
3. Color Steel Picture Rails from Room & Board
While there are some cheaper options out there, these steel rails from Room & Board are stronger than most and add great visual punch when you opt for one of the 7 bright colors (over white or silver). These steel rails are available in 9 colors and 4 sizes and range from $89 for 36″ to $129 for 72″.
8. Dot Wall Hook – $19.95 each at CB2
The bright yellow powder-coated steel can be hung horizontally or vertically. Three of these hung vertically and staggered would offer a lot of hanging options in a small entryway.
9. CYLINDER vases and bowls – $14.99 (set of 3) at IKEA
The low-bowl in this collection is ideal as a catch-all by the door. Available in an intense blue, hot pink and clear
10. Markable Umbrella by Konstantin Grcic – $13.99 at MUJI & BLADET glass vase – $39.99 at IKEA
These basic umbrellas are sturdy, simple and attractive — and they’ll last years longer than the standard $4 deli umbrella. Keep a few by the door in a large glass vase like the 25½” BLADET glass vase – $39.99 at IKEA. At over 2′ tall, this vase is ideal for keeping umbrellas in order and helps keep the floor dry.
