Guest Picks: 5 Fresh Entryway Themes
From rustic to gilded, one of these entry arrangements is sure to suit your style
I have serious entryway envy. I have a teeny tiny "foyer," and there isn't even room for a hook for your jacket, let alone furniture and accessories. But just in case I eventually purchase a larger home, I've been storing up ideas for a fun and functional entry. Here are five fresh themes that I'd love to incorporate into my own home. — Lauren from A Lovely Lark
Natural: This entry table has it all: looks, functionality and a space-saving design.
This simple table lamp would fit in nicely with a variety of decorative styles, and it is classic enough to stand the test of time.
These linen trays would be lovely on a table, and they would serve as a great landing spot for keys, mail, etc.
Metallic: Every space needs a little glitz and glamour. This tray has it in spades. It's basically functional art.
I love the classic metal and marble materials of this console table paired with the modern design.
This simple, organic, white bowl offers a fun surprise with its metallic interior.
If I had a true entryway, I would love to really play it up and define the space with wallpaper.
Punch of color: Bring a little excitement to your entry space with this colorful modern table.
You want the first thing you see when you get home and the last thing you see before you leave to be beautiful, energizing and inspiring. This painting fits the bill for sure.
This fun lamp is sold as children's decor, but I think it would look lovely paired with sophisticated grown-up pieces as well.
This tray would punch up any boring old table. The pattern and color are both so transitional they'd work well in a modern or more traditional space.
Rustic: Natural wood warms up any space. This is an inviting table to come home to.
This basket would be a stylish place to store shoes, blankets or just about anything.
Check your hair or makeup in this gorgeous natural mirror before heading out the door.
And in case you need a little confidence boost, this print is a perfect way to start your day off on the right foot.
Transitional: This clean-lined console table would work well in a traditional, contemporary or modern space.
Classic, simple, clean lines make this mirror a winner in any space.
I love that this can be used as a door stop, a modern sculpture or a bookend.
