Enchanting Entrances

In show business, making an entrance is an important, attention-grabbing moment… and it’s no different when it comes to your home! 

Whether it’s bold and colourful, filled with flowers, or adorned with artwork, the entrance sets the tone for the rest of the home, serving as an indicator of what’s to come.

It’s also the first step to welcoming people into your home, and as such, it’s good to attend to practical matters with places to put bags, keys, shoes, hats and jackets.

This might be hooks or a hat stand, or a narrow table or hallstand, which is also good for storage and providing a surface to hold vases, lamps, and artwork. A chair is also good for people to sit on as they remove their shoes (it’s also a good place for you to add a decorative touch with cushions or fabric).

A mirror is a good consideration for checking your appearance as you come in or out; it can also serve as a means for increasing the illusion of space in what is typically a small and narrow area.

Flowers are a popular choice for entries as they establish a beautiful fresh feel for your home right from the outset. You could also consider positioning container plants on the exterior of the entrance, to extend this vibrancy from outside in.

First impressions count, so it’s worth paying attention to the entrance to your home. Creating an enchanting entry is the first step to creating a welcoming home, so make the most of this important space!
