How to Create a Grand Entryway in Your Home

Though it was once merely utilitarian, now your home’s entryway can be filled with the ambience of a charming courtyard. Delight in the sun-baked warmth of a cobblestone road, brimming with vegetation and dappled with afternoon light. Step into an inviting cafe and breathe in the delicious aromas permeating the air—or take a seat on the bench and while away a few carefree moments.

Such a grand entryway is yours for the creating! This look is all about Old World flavor, made even more resplendent with green faux olive leaves, dashes of spicy cinnabar, and soothing cherry finishes.

Kinship Entryway

A large-scale wall hanging is the obvious focal point; we’ve chosen the Quaint Town Tapestry, which offers an expansive 70”x50” size and a captivating archway scene. Crown the wall hanging with a personalized wall grille like Kinship from JasonW Studios® for a statement that’s uniquely yours.

A padded bench topped with a quilted, matte satin pillow lends comfort to the space, while a pedestal table provides room for your treasured articles, such as a framed photograph, accent clock, or covered jar. Finally, hang a wreath with artificial olive leaves from a monogram over-the-door hanger. We’ve chosen Overture from JasonW Studios®, which features a two-tone design and a layered appearance.

Get the Look: Butterfly Wall Collage for Spring

Fly into the season on wings of beauty bursting with color. Explore your own unique creativity in spring decorating influenced by nature’s beautiful butterflies. Imbue subtle pastels into your living room with canvases and wall art, or make a bold statement with a bright palette and an iridescent sheen that draws the eye.

Inspire everyone who steps into your sitting room to enjoy spring to its fullest. Center a personalized metal wall sculpture above the sofa and surround it with these hovering symbols of change, hope, and life. Frame the metal marvel with fluttering golden butterflies and a pair of pastel-hued canvases. Give these gorgeous insects a garden of their own with hand-picked flowers in vases beneath this wonderful array. Finally, cushion the sofa with soft pillows for the added touch of “butterfly kisses.”

Butterfly Wall Collage

Allow butterflies to flit about your entire home, not just the walls. Sink into airy butterfly bedding brimming with spring greens or illuminate deepest night with a glowing table lamp. Encourage guests to spread their wings and soar with a garden-inspired rug or a wreath-like accent of butterflies alighting on branches and flowers. Lighten up a bathroom with towels and accessories or a kitchen with wall sconces and table linens.
