Entryways are the first thing you see, not to mention the first thing your guests see (you know what they say about first impressions!) Even though they are a small space its an opportunity to make a huge difference. I love small decorating projects like an entryway. You can give it a little refresh with not much effort or money and it goes a long way. Here are four tips for putting together a modern entryway.
1. Add Plants or Flowers. I don’t know much about feng shui but I know that the moment I put a plant or fresh flowers in a space it adds a breath of fresh air, it livens the space right up.
2. Make something the Star Attraction. Here we made the art big and colorful! It is the first thing that catches your eye when you enter.
3. Trays and Catchalls and Bowls Oh My! These make great clutter collectors for keys and mail so your space stays nice and organized.
4. Make it Functional. We added this pretty bench from Target for a place to sit and take shoes on and off as well this coatrack to corral jackets and backpacks when you enter.
