There’s nothing more welcoming than an interesting entry to a home. Whether it be from the outside or once you are actually inside, the entry to a home is the ideal place to showcase your individual style and leave the guest dying to know what else is in store.
A red front door makes a bold statement and promises a very vibrant and exciting household.
Once inside the door, a chest of drawers or hall table in the entryway is a great place to keep your keys and other items you need as you race out the door. It is also a great spot to leave the mail.
Use a fabulous piece of furniture, an elegant lamp, bold artworks,a feature wall or an unusual light fitting to create interest in the entry or hall.
Once in the entry, often a hall will lead through the rest of the house. These should not be neglected. Again colour, artworks or furniture will give the space personality.
And once you’ve tended to the front door, the entry and the hall, don’t forget the back door. We all know it’s not just the tradesmen that use the back door!!! I just love this image I found on Flickr. The very clever owner has painted the inside of the door with blackboard paint. If it leads from the kitchen or the laundry, what a great place to write those last minute notes or a things to do list.
I’m heading off to buy a can of blackboard paint!!!!
