When you walk into someone’s home for the first time the hallway that you see gives an instant impression of what the rest of their home will look like. Entryway, foyer, hallway.. Whatever you call it, it is important. It sets an immediate tone of your home, and it makes a personal statement about your home and your family.
Personalize the Hallway
The easiest way to make someone feel welcome in your home is to make them feel like part of the family. Add personal pictures to your entryway to show visitors your pride and joy, or include memorabilia and decor that represents your interests and passions.
Adding a mirror opens up an otherwise narrow space. Use multiples to create dimension, or go oversize to make the mirror a statement piece in the hallway. Either way, mirrors can add some serious luxury to a room, and who doesn’t like checking how they look on the way out the door?
When walking in the door, the first thing you want to do is drop your keys, drop your purse, and kick off your shoes. Instead of letting all of these things pile up around the door and create clutter, put a coat rack, key hanger, or boxes for shoes and purses. Your guests will enjoy knowing exactly where to place everything when they walk in.
As always, we love to make a statement, especially when that statement is the first thing you see when walking in the home. Use color to amp up your foyer and show your personality by adding great decor. We’ve already talked here, here, and here about how much we are loving on wallpaper lately, and this floral wallpaper makes a HUGE statement!
As always, you can find links to the pictures we used on our Pinterest board. For each picture, I pulled products from The Mix’s website that you can purchase to add serious fun to your entryway (or anywhere else in your home!)
