Entryways (and sometimes foyers) are so important in the eyes of the décor gods. When guests arrive and do the typical walk-through, it’s the first piece of you they see. Sprucing up your entryway should be fun and tell a story about the people who live in that home. Incorporating a few new pieces allows your entryway to make a statement within seconds of the guest’s arrival.
1.Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who’s the fairest guest of all? A grand mirror opens up any entryway with plenty of light and space. A mirror can be your focal point—choose wisely.
2.Mix and match.
Foyers can be limited on space, and that’s okay. Choose a fun wall covering that will captivate the eye of your guests. Don’t focus on the coordinating color schemes; focus on the story you want to tell.
3.Art is always a good idea.
Placing a perfectly picked piece of art can be the final touch that any entryway needs. This art piece doesn’t have to be the next Picasso; choose a piece of art that you can relate to and something you can’t stop looking at.
4.You need that one piece.
Okay, so you have a grand mirror, you are not matching colors, and you have some art. What next? To tie it all together, you need a statement piece. Whether it’s a well-crafted rug or perfectly tufted bench, choosing this piece should reflect the feeling of the rest of the house. Or you can find a piece that has nothing to do with your décor, for an even bolder statement.
