Enticing Entryways

Today, I am thrilled to be guest posting on Design StILes about my latest entryway inspiration.  I am currently in the midst of zhushing my entryway in my own home, so I thought I'd share a bit about the process and a few entryways pinned on my inspiration board.

To me, your entryway is one of the most important parts of your home.  It is the first thing guests see when they arrive, and it often sets the tone for the rest of your house.  In my dream home, I'll have brick herringbone flooring in my entryway, just like in this picture above.  I also think it's fun to have meaningful items in an entryway- family photos, antiques, and other tchotchkes that represent you well.

Adding a little greenery is a nice touch.  Whether it be an orchid, a boxwood, fresh flowers or some other type of succulent, I love seeing blooms in an entryway.

  5. My biggest regret in buying my house is that it doesn't have a real entry way. It was on the top of my list. Still love my house but it makes me a little sad when I see these gorgeous shots. Heading over to see what you did.

  14. I just adore all of these grand entryways!! It really makes you think twice about what you put in that space...versus thinking so much about a living/family room...this makes me wish I owned a home so that I could decorate like the photos above!
