Ten Ways To Make An Entrance

When I am welcoming someone new into my home I know I want them to be intrigued. A bit of a wow factor in the entry is always a good thing. A crazy chandelier, an unexpected paint color, a funky chair to take your shoes off, or even all three put together are a fantastic way to do that. The following 10 examples get us excited about whats to come in these spaces. Do you have a cool entry? Send us a photo of your entry spaces!

This space by Tory Burch is jaw dropping. I can't get enough of those eye popping orange consoles. 

A little lucite goes a long way. I have seen it used in every space imaginable, from traditional to industrial to shabby chic it works anywhere. It also works great for small spaces because it tricks your eye because it is see through.

If you have enough space using a center hall table can be a great place to display some really fun sculptures or flowers.

A place to tuck a bench is also another great space saver. You can always find really inexpensive garden stools at Home Goods as well.

Love the way a huge floor mirror tucked behind an airy table can make a space feel larger as well. It's also not bad for checking yourself out on the way out of the house!
