The entry really sets the tone for your entire house! It welcomes your guests and gives them clues for what lies beyond in your home! I love to create bright and bold entries like the one in my office. It features a gorgeous blue sofa from C.R. Laine and a colorful painting by one of my favorite artists, Jane Booth – and you’ll see it in this week’s video.
In my previous home, I used a daring and graphic wallpaper by F. Schumacher to create a real statement, and to showcase the color story that continued right into my family room. I can’t wait to show you the entrance to my new house, too! Meanwhile, let’s talk about my best tips for designing a welcoming space in your home:
Let’s recap those tips for creating an entry with style:
- If you do go bold with your wall color, tone everything else down by using neutral trims and furnishings. Don’t let too many bright colors compete in such a small space.
- For two-story entries, consider an overscaled wallpaper. It gives a grand appearance, but brings the scale down to a more normal height. Add in an amazing light fixture and a stair runner, and you’ll have an entry that is full of style!
- Using the same color in all of your entry’s furnishings and accessories, like navy with white, gives a coordinated look that is classic and timeless.
- If you want to create drama, use a bold and graphic wallcovering. That will definitely set the tone for your stylish home!
Use these tips to design an entry that has a “wow” factor and sets the mood for your guests. Please share this video with your friends, and let me know what you’ve done to create an amazing entry to your home!
Until next time!
