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 the Balinda Wall Storage Unit with the Dylissa Bench for a cohesive look and slightly staggered the furnishings.
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, skid-resistant coverage on your floor. The Finn Storage Basket Set will be a welcome addition with storage space for a variety of articles.
Add instant cozy appeal to the entryway with two or three charming wall decor pieces. The Family Word Wall Art will remind you of what’s truly important. The Callister Wall Clock has a vintage quality coupled with a modern aesthetic for pleasing transitional decor. When you’re in a hurry, the Family Rules Wall Plaque will remind you to keep your cool and treat others with kindness.
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 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.
