Entryway Decorating Idea

For the first entryway, we chose coordinating furnishings with clean, simple lines. Neutral colors like ivory provide a sense of lightness, while allowing for decorating versatility. We paired a wall storage unit with the Dylissa Bench for a cohesive look and slightly staggered the furnishings. The wooden bench provides a place to sit while putting on or taking off shoes, coupled with a shelf for extra storage space.

Bring comfort to this often-used space with an anti-fatigue mat, and don't forget to place some storage bins nearby for shoes and accessories. At 60” long, the Heavenly Stripe Runner Mat provides substantial coverage on your floor. A Microfibres™ face and skid-resistant foam backing make this mat a win-win for the entryway area. The Finn Storage Basket Set will be a welcome addition with storage space for a variety of articles. The set includes three black metal wire baskets, each in a different size.

Add instant cozy appeal to the entryway with two or three charming wall decor pieces. The Family Word Wall Art will remind you, in elegant script lettering, of what's truly important. The Callister Wall Clock has a vintage quality coupled with a modern aesthetic for pleasing transitional decor. A whitewashed wooden face provides the background for metal motifs and stenciled numbers. When you're in a hurry, the Family Rules Wall Plaque will remind you to keep your cool and treat others with kindness. The canvas and wooden sign features encouraging words and gentle rules for a happy family life.

Wall Decor in Entryway Setting

For the second entryway, we used darker pieces and woodgrain decor to create a rich, homey feel. The Jenson Double Wall Letter Holder serves double duty in entryway areas, collecting both your mail and jackets or scarves. The brown wood holder has two black metal letter holders and five hooks beneath. The Family Word Wall Art is easily visible against a light wall, celebrating your family ties in elegant fashion. Jot grocery notes or meeting reminders on the Wine Barrel Chalkboard, a piece that indicates your appreciation for fine wine. The chalkboard features a handcrafted frame made from recycled wine barrel staves. This distinctive accent is sure to delight fellow wine enthusiasts as they enter your home.
