Design | The Entryway

One of the first places you see in most homes is surprisingly one area that’s often taken for granted. The entryway is a great space to initiate flow in your home’s design. But in order to do this, you have either display something you love or find an appropriate focal point.

Don’t worry… it’s actually pretty easy.

If you have a foyer, make sure to decorate it with a little bit of you. Like the rest of your home, displaying something you love is a great way to structure the movement of your design. A family photo, a unique painting, or a table display with a few of your favorite collections are all great, as long as you love it. Here are some examples of what I mean:


And if you don’t have a foyer or if your front door opens right up into another space in your home, at least make sure that your entryway is welcoming. Choose something to be the initial focal point for your guests to see. It could be a piece of art hanging over the couch, accented wall next to the door, or a tasteful runner leading up the stairway.


How is your entryway designed?
