Hello everyone! I know it has been a long time since I last posted. I had to get my "groove" back! (haha) I hope all of you will stick with me as I begin to blog more & more. Please leave comments and thoughts on the posts so I will know which content you guys like and that someone is actually reading (otherwise Im talking to myself ALOT)
So now, on to my post for today. This post is all about Entryways, Foyers, wherever people first walk into your home! Your entryway should be bold and reflect the style of your house. I say bold because usually these spaces are not that big so you can make a big impact without it looking too, hmmmm whats the word... gaudy maybe? You don't have to have a lot of space to create an entryway look. A nice table and some good accessories can make a big difference. If you are brave you could get creative with some paint or WALLPAPER! (i loooove wallpaper) If you rent there is this great thing called removable wallpaper! Who knew? I have not personally tried it, so I hope it doesn't mess up your walls like it advertises.
If you are low on cash (like me) get creative! Visit your local thrift stores, used furniture resale places, and the sidewalks! Some people throw away good stuff that just needs some love and vision! Now, I'm not saying go dumpster diving (unless your into that or its something awesome) but just keep your eyes open. Ikea has some great pieces that you can embellish to make them look super expensive. I'm serious! There are tons of pins on Pinterest under the search term IKEA HACKS. Some really great ideas can be found on there. I will try to post a few I found.
Here are some great ideas for entryways that I found pictures of and really liked. All of these pictures can be found on my Pinterest Board with original links to the sources. Enjoy!
I love the mirror. It looks like a piece of jewelry. The silver console with the white walls and leather lamp all work perfectly together.
This is a great pop of color for guests to see when they walk in. The height of the lamps makes this space feel grand. Those chairs...FAB!
I mean I just love a starburst mirror. The console paint color is a great neutral.
This is a great bold statement for a small apartment. Great use of a random wall!
This is very country chic to me. Very pretty and feminine.
I am kind of obsessed with these convex mirrors. Great way to reflect light without having a clear mirror. Love the basket under the table and blue lamp. Slightly nautical but I'm into that!
I love this small entryway. First, the pop of color the rug adds is great and also adds texture to a hard space. The size of the table is very proportional to the space and they didn't try to add too many decorative elements that would make it feel clustered. I also love the black door! It feels very rich. Good tip!
I like the feather wreath on the mirror. Its unique and I like that. Also, those lamps are pretty awes, right?
This is very classic. It would never go out of style. Did you notice the black door??
This chest is from Ikea! They added the gold woodwork! Its an Ikea Hack that I mentioned earlier! Great $$$ saver!
Don't forget those odd spaces. They can be beautiful too! Yellow is my favorite color so, naturally I love this console.
I thought this was a cool tip that I would have never thought of! Paint your edges of your door a fun color for some extra pop!
This rug is fab. I love the orange boxes for unexpected color!
This is an interesting way to do your basement. Its a walk down "open" basement. Not sure yet how I feel about it. It was just so different I felt I should include it.
This would be great for a narrow space! Not sure how they did that but its pretty cool.
You can never go wrong with black and gold!
Another way to add drama to your space. With cool flooring!
I love this vignette!
Im obsessed with wallpaper and this is great for dramatic effect without being trendy!
A good gallery wall is always fabulous. Don't try to be too matchy matchy. Stick to a color palette and it will all work together.
I like this because its very old world feeling with the dark wood and deep colored rugs. The blue wallpaper adds a more modern touch. All in all, I think it works.
I love a great staircase! And a black door ;)
I love the pop of turquoise this table provides. Its beachy but if you live at or near a beach then its perfect! The basket and gold balls balance it nicely.
Love these black framed glass doors. The rug and wooden console go together like PB&J!
I really like the planters INSIDE! Its different and unexpected. thats a great door too!
This is actually a stairwell hall but I love the wallpaper and the framed baby bathing suits! I mean can you get any cuter? This was included to show that anything you treasure can be framed and be a great accent to your home.
I love all the color and how tall the branches are. It brings proportion to a large space.
I just love distressed mirror.
Another example of using your door to make an impact!
