I mentioned earlier that your front porch is the first impression of your home but your front entryway is just as important!! Choosing the perfect furniture, colour scheme and accent pieces for your entryway will showcase the rest of your home’s style. I love console tables, especially those with drawers!!! There is something about having a place to put all your stuff and still have it of out site. Whether you put your keys on a hook or in a cute jar, having a central place to store them is time saving when you are rushing out the door. Finding the perfect sized mirror can make all the difference as you do not want it to be too big or too small. Hanging a mirror over your console table brightens the space adding reflection. I also suggest putting some sort of light fixture whether it be pot lights or a table lamp on your console table. This will assist when arriving home at night and when you are expecting visitors. If you don’t have an electrical outlet at the front door, a solar powered light is definitely a great option! You are saving energy but still keeping your front entry stylish and lit! Now for the fun stuff… decor. Two words, “fresh flowers.” There is nothing nicer than walking into a house and smelling fresh flowers especially in the summer months. I also like to decorate with family photos, candles and natural textures all of which can be found throughout my home.
I hope these tips inspire you to decorate your entryway!
