We’ve been brought up to believe that first impressions are what count the most, so your home shouldn’t be treated any differently.
An entryway can say so much about a home and it’s owner- with just one step pass the threshold, your lifestyle, your design sense, and your personality are all being judged… This is why it’s so important that your entryway says as much about you and your design style as the rest of your house does. When it comes to entryways, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, and make your first impression count!
These eclectic entryways all do a fabulous job at balancing the clean & simple lines of modern design with more antique elements. The use of bold colors and metallics adds whimsy and personality.
A play on neutrals,contrast, and texture are the key things to remember when designing an entryway with a traditional style in mind. While the second example might seem pretty bold with it’s loud wallpaper pattern, elements such as the molding and antique dresser and chairs make this entryway traditional-with a twist.
