A Grand Entrance

Tuesday, 21st July 2015

The entryway of your home is the first area seen by your guests. It welcomes them to your dwelling, and it welcomes you each time you walk through the front door at the end of the day.

Does your entryway have a “style”? Is it modern; Traditional; Rustic; Eclectic; or Classic?

When it comes to selecting your entrance style or decor, there are many possibilities for this inviting space. Here we explore a range of ideas and looks that will help create a grand entrance at home, including the all-important first impression - the front door.

Have you thought of the wall colour or texture? A feature wall of brick or stone cladding can make a spectacular statement or even a wallpapered wall, of which there are many styles which transcend the old vibes of the 70’s or even 90’s and can bring about a interesting tactile surface that is essentially a piece of art.

Also think of the use of natural light or a feature pendant light to make a statement. To add an organic touch, you could make use of an oversized indoor plant to make a statement.

From the use of floor boards, to marble and the use of artwork to feature lighting, the space we quite often spend the least amount of time in, but infact is quite the most prominent and is the first impression for what is to come, takes more importance when designing your home now. Take a look through these images and be inspired to make that ‘Grand Entrance’!
