Entryway Inspiration

By Lindsay Wakeman

Who doesn’t love a warm and welcoming entryway? I think an entryway is an important area in any home, small medium or large! I feel that this space can really set the tone for the rest of the home. When I walk into a home, I want to feel welcomed, so I want to show you a few of my favorite entryways in all types of spaces. 

For small and medium size areas, there are plenty of options for the entryway. If you enjoy art, photographs, or unique wall decor, you can create a gallery wall in this space! I personally like a variety of frames, sizes, and colors. You can do a monochromatic theme in this area as well - it is completely up to your personal preference! I recommend finding a narrow console to place below the gallery wall. Another combination that I find to be very functional is a narrow console with a mirror hanging above the piece. If you find that you exit your front door to go to your car, a console with drawers might be a good idea so that you can store your keys for functionality! Lastly, I love the use of a small wall shelf in place of a console. This works in smaller spaces, helping to keep everything in scale within the space. In the images below, you can see a few of these ideas!

If you have a large entryway or foyer, you will have more room to work with. However, I think less is more in this case because you do not want this space to feel cluttered. I would encourage you to keep this space as open as possible, so that traffic can flow through this area. I love seeing benches or accent chairs in these spaces, which adds an element of functionality! Just like a small entryway, you can use a console or two on some of the walls, and finish it off with a mirror or artwork. Regardless of your space, there is plenty that you can do to make your entryway welcoming!
