It's a wrap! We've come to the end of our month long look into entryways of all shapes, sizes and styles, sent in by proud renters and homeowners from across the country to compete and inspire. First, through weeks of sharing entries and voting, we established your top choices in each of our four divisions and they are are all worthy winners. But, then we asked those winners (and the voters!) to go one more round to determine the most energized entryway of them all....
...and A.J. takes home the Grand Prize!
Grand Prize & Over 1000 sq ft Rental Division Winner: A.J.'s "Sense of Inspiration" Entryway
Congrats to A.J. for both the division and big Grand Prize win.! A.J.'s entryway is a open, airy, truly multipurpose space brought together with perfect mix of style and function; it's no wonder that it was a favorite with voters.
A.J. says, "The entryway is such a huge focal point of this house and fortunately, it came with a ton of character on its own. The beautiful stairway, tall ceilings and open design were the perfect canvas. It is quite a multi purpose space used for entertainment, work, dining and even strategic storage. I love the mix of design that merges so well together between the modern make up, vintage and industrial touches, to the light and airy additions. It truly is a collection of our favorite things."
