Hello, hello, come on in!

When it comes to home design, the entry way is often overlooked. However, this space is one of the most important areas of your home, as it's the first thing that visitors see when they enter. Not only does it set the tone for the rest of the house, but it's also where you greet guests and make a first impression. Here are some tips on how to create a welcoming entry way that is both functional and stylish. These are great if you are staging to sell or designing to dwell...

Mirrors or Art

Mirrors or art are a great option for an entry way. They add visual interest and can make a small space appear larger. A mirror is also a practical addition, allowing you to quickly check your appearance before leaving the house.

Entry Way Table

An entry way table is a must-have item for any home. However, it's important to choose a table that won't take up too much space. A slim console table is ideal for small spaces. You can use the table to display a vase of fresh flowers, a decorative bowl, or a stack of books.


A pair of lamps is a nice touch in an entry way, providing a warm and inviting glow. They also add symmetry and balance to the space. Choose lamps that are the appropriate size for your table and that match your decor. Don't go too small!

Tray or Bowl

A tray or bowl is a practical addition to your entry way. You can use it to catch keys, mail, or other small items that you need to grab on your way out the door. A decorative tray or bowl can also add color and texture to the space.

Color and Texture

Don't be afraid to use color and texture in your entry way. You can add a pop of color with a brightly colored rug or a statement piece of artwork. Texture can be added with a woven basket, a patterned throw pillow, or a furry rug.


Baskets are a great option for stowing shoes, umbrellas, or other items by the front door. They're both practical and stylish, adding texture and warmth to the space. Choose a basket that fits your decor and that is the appropriate size for your needs.

If you need to update your entry way start by looking around your house and see what you can repurpose. In this entry way the owner had a dresser (not being used) and a mirror that was already hanging in the hall. We just added art, a tray, and a pair of lamps...WOW!! Entry way complete!

Of course, if you need help to jazz up your entry way you can give me a ring.
