7 Ways to Make Your Entryway So Good, You’ll Want to Hang Out There
The entryway is the first area that guests see when they walk into your home, so it’s only natural that you want it to look welcoming and presentable. But what if it could look so welcoming and presentable that you find yourself actually wanting to spend time there, even when you aren’t sorting through piles of mail or packing your work tote? Trust us, it’s a possibility! Take a look at the gorgeous setups below and then go ahead and revamp your own space for maximum use.
Add beautiful wallpaper
Wallpapering your entryway is way cheaper and easier than wallpapering a whole room. The mural wallpaper featured in this Argentinian home completely steals the show in the best way possible, adding magnificent color and drama to the entryway while coordinating with the woven rug and dresser.
Don’t forget about storage
Add cozy accents
Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild has mastered the shabby chic, boho look in her entryway, where a throw pillow and blanket add texture and pattern to the nook (and, v. importantly, make people feel extra comfortable while they take their shoes on and off).
Fill the space with plants. Lots of them.
This welcoming, plant-filled foyer brings the outside right in through the front door.
Paint the inside of your door
Take a cue from this South Carolina home and paint your interior door something bright and fun, even if the rest of your walls are white.
Play up your favorite trends
An entryway is a great spot to experiment with the latest design fads, because the space is small and accessories can be easily swapped out. Christina Fluegge of Griege Design created this modern-looking setup featuring abstract art, cute cloth throw pillows, and all of the rattan.
Keep favorite possessions nearby
As much as we appreciate a minimalist, streamlined look, don’t be afraid to add a bit of personality here and there with a bookshelf full of favorite items. You may just find yourself reaching for a novel as you head out the door!
