Often overlooked, creating a well-designed entryway is more than just a transition zone to other living areas. It sets the tone for the rest of your home.
Gone are the days of understated and boring entryways. Today, the entryway is recognised as a distinct room in its own right, deserving of a bold design that leaves a lasting impression. Use the opportunity to show off your favourite piece of entryway furniture, art, or sculpture as a way of
setting the stage for the rest of the decorative theme of your home.
Start with a colour, pattern or style that resonates with you, and then add some accents and furnishings that bring the space to life. Consider adding a coat rack or a set of hooks on the wall to bring more functionality to your entryway.
A commanding, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork is an exceptional way to attract attention to a space that might otherwise feel awkward or too small. If you have tile or wood flooring, a rug can soften the space, add texture and catch dirt being tracked in from outside.
Mirrors serve both functionally and visually, not only brightening a small space and making it feel bigger, but also handy for a quick outfit check before you head out the door.
