3 Ways to Decorate a Statement Entryway

◂ Back to Posts

We like to think that a home is an expression of who the owner is. Nothing makes a stronger first impression than a statement entryway in a home. Imagine walking in the front door and being completely captivated by the home’s energy and design. Set your home apart and impress your guests with a beautiful welcome space by following these three decorating tips! After all, you should love the space you come home to!

Use Unique and Personal Items. Your home should look and feel like yours! Stray away from generic designs or neutral pieces by showcasing artwork and other items that have sentimental value. A piece of art from your favorite destination or a trinket passed down in your family creates the perfect touch and is an easy talking point for new guests that enter your home. If incorporating personal items in the entryway isn’t your style, opt for repurposing antique finds to create a sense of individuality and creativity.

Incorporate welcoming colors. Color goes a long way in setting the ambiance and energy of a space. With an entryway being the first place your guests see, invite them in with warm colors or earthy tones. Whether this be a colored wall, a beautiful painting or a colored piece of furniture, the options are endless. A playful rug or a charming lamp are two easy accessories that tie an entryway together quite nicely.

Style with a bench. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice practicality for design! The beauty of designing an entryway is that you can cater it to your needs and the needs of your guests. Incorporating a bench or a big chair is a great way to fill up the space, while offering an added level of comfort and ease when rushing out the door or welcoming others in. Add a throw pillow or two and you’ve just easily elevated your space!

Decorating a home should be fun, yet it can feel daunting with an overwhelming amount of choices to make and designs or advice to follow. The most important thing to remember is that your home is yours and should feel that way! Keep these tips in mind when designing your space and know that your opinion is the most important one.
