Welcome Home: Entryway Design Inspiration

Make a festive first impression this holiday season and keep your on-the-go essentials organized all year long with a mini entryway makeover.

Though it’s easily overlooked, you could argue that the entryway is possibly one of the most important spots in your home. It’s the portal to and from the outside world – a spot for keeping your accessories at the ready and it’s the first thing your guests see the minute you open the door. The entryway is your home’s first impression, so why not make it just as warm and inviting as any other space in your home, especially during the busy holiday season?

Below, check out our design tips for how you can give your entryway a mini makeover so that it not only makes a festive first impression but serves well as a spot for all your on-the-go essentials all year long.

1. First Things, First

The perfect entryway starts with a stylish and functional console or sideboard. Whether you’re looking for a piece to beautifully display little trinkets and accessories or something that offers extra storage space (or both) a console or sideboard will do the trick. Browse our favorites below to get inspired!

2. Festive Decor

What would the holidays be without some sparkle and shine? Accessorize with warm metals shimmering in gold or brass to give your entryway that festive feel and touch of glam.

3. Light It Up

Light up a dark corner with a small table lamp or go big with a statement chandelier. Candles are also a nice way to add ambiance.

4. Wall Decor

Adorn your walls with style and functionality. Wow with artwork or add a modern clock  that makes a statement. Another great way to fancy up your wall is with an over-sized mirror. While it naturally reflects the beauty of its surroundings, mirrors are a great way to add depth and make a small entryway appear larger, plus it’s super handy when you need a quick, “how do I look?” check.

5. Organize Chic

For those of you wondering if it’s possible to make room for storage and still make a great first impression, the answer is yes! With smart storage solutions, your entryway can serve as the perfect spot to hold items like keys, coats, and shoes. Small decorative boxes serve as the perfect home for keys and/or mail while larger storage boxes are helpful for keeping shoes organized. Try a stylish coat rack to keep winter jackets at the ready or a planter to serve as an umbrella holder for those of you who live in the rainier parts of town.
