The first impression of a home is the entryway. It can be a completely separate entity or an extension of a room. It may be big or small, open or closed in. But no matter what size or shape, it is important to create a memorable space.
This entryway tells a lot about this home. The moment you step through the door you are greeted with warmth and charm. The shiplap walls, whitewashed cobblestone floor, and antique wood door speaks to the rustic character of the home. The ample hanging storage and a farmhouse inspired bench says come in, take your shoes off, and stay awhile. This homeowner wants its guests to feel comfortable and cozy.
Here is another example of a rustic inspired entryway. The homeowner has chosen a weathered bench with handmade storage boxes to provide plenty of hidden storage for shoes and accessories. A few simple pieces of shiplap anchor a chunky wooden shelf, large metal hooks, and family keepsakes welcoming you to their home. Even though this is not a large entryway, the homeowner has still managed to create a space that serves its purpose and sets the mood for the rest of the home.
This entryway is uncluttered and full of personality. The clean modern lines of the bench and neutral walls provide a backdrop to the simple southwestern furnishings. This homeowner shares a little of their personality without being too much in your face. The subtle blue in the rug with the pop of orange provides just the right amount of color to play off the natural basket and simple black and white photo. And, finally the bull head hooks give a sense of whimsy. These owners like their home neat and clean, but are always in the mood for some carefree fun.
A black and white Scandinavian inspired entryway is clean, organized, and full of modern artistic charm. I love the use of light wood accents to warm the black and white palette and subtle artistic touches. The simple round mirror reflects the homeowners modern black and white photograph collection and continues the theme of clean lines used throughout the space. The entryway is completed with just a touch of greenery bringing a hint of nature inside.
Weather it's paint or wallpaper, nothing says personality like a bold first impression. This entryway intrigues you. This homeowner is not afraid to play with color and mix different styles. From the blue walls to the modern light fixture to the traditional mahogany banister you know this home is filled with eccentric charm.
