Enjoy all the fun of being outside this summer without worrying about protecting your home’s floors. Place a WaterHog® doormat outside your entryway to trap dirt and help prevent it getting tracked into your home. Or add a runner mat outside your patio door to preserve those clean floors. However you prefer to keep dirt off of your home’s floors, keeping them clean shouldn’t deter you from enjoying the beauty of a summer spent outdoors.
Proudly made in the USA, the antistatic polypropylene WaterHog® mats are designed for indoor or outdoor use year round, and are mildew-, mold-, and rot-resistant. The exclusive Water Dam border traps dirt and water on the mat to keep your floors clean, and each mat has a slip- and skid-resistant SBR rubber backing that is certified by the National Floor Safety Institute.
The Chevron mat features chevron designs and is available in a variety of colors and four sizes: 35”x23” rectangle mat, 36”x24” monogrammed rectangle mat, 39”x24” slice mat, and 60”x22” runner mat. The monogrammed mat includes free personalization with a single letter in the center of the mat accented with a circle and double border.
Other WaterHog® mats are available in a variety of colors, designs, and four sizes: 35”x23” rectangle mat; 39”x24” slice mat; 60”x22” runner mat; and stair treads in a set of 4, each 30”x8.5”. The Boxwood mat features a vining leaf design. The Cordova mat has intriguing quatrefoil motifs. The Diamonds mat features a lined diamond pattern. The Squares mat has simplistic square motifs. The Ellipse mat is patterned with unique geometrics.

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.

The interior entryway of your home receives plenty of foot traffic, but have you given it appropriate decorating attention? If the entryway is looking more “eh” than “elegant,” these decorating ideas will be just what you need.
Feel free to customize this look to your heart’s content using new furnishings and those you already own; use your favorite table lamp pair to light up the space, swap out the wall grille for another striking wall decor piece, or move a neglected upholstered chair from a shadowy corner to a prime spot beside the console table. Click here to view all the items that we used.
How did we create this look?
We chose home furnishings with the common thread of elegant traditional style. We balanced heavier or darker pieces with luminous or light colors like gold, cream, alabaster, and ivory.
- Place a console table against the entryway wall. Make sure it is wide and sturdy enough to support two table lamps. An open, airy design will keep this area from looking stuffy.
- Hang two wall mirror panels an equal distance apart from the sides of the console table.
- Display a vertical metal wall grille between the two mirrors, directly above the center of the console.
- Position an upholstered accent chair to one side of the console table.
- Top the console table with traditional table lamps and an additional accent if you like (such as a tabletop photo frame or covered bowl).
- Place an Aubusson-style rug runner in front of the console table and chair.

Whether you relish getting organized or you dread it, the task is made easier by acquiring some versatile organizers. Here are just a few pieces that can be used in various areas of the home—whichever room needs a nudge in the right direction or a little “shipshape” prompting.
The Vintage-Style Wall Mount Organizer Baskets have a simple openwork wire design and a label plate for easy identification. Spruce up the mudroom or entryway area with a little classic charm, or keep accessories on hand in the kitchen.
The metal Basket and Tray Organizers can be hung on a wall or used on a pegboard. Their no-frills industrial appearance allows them to mesh with many decor styles. Keep the garage area neat and tidy, or turn a messy pantry into an orderly storage space.

This metal stand has three wooden baskets for your accessories—use the baskets to hold towels, socks, ties, or whatever you like! This furnishing would also be handy in a guest room.
Even if you’ve grown to love a small room or nook in your home, you might be scratching your head wondering how to decorate it. Or perhaps you’re simply trying to conserve space to make room for other furnishings. Either way, these compact pieces and convenient organizers may be just what you need!
