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: Scrolling Leaves Dining Room for Fall

Fall is in full swing with warm scents that linger on wandering breezes: caramel apples, woodsmoke, pumpkin pie, and spiced apple cider. Bring that warm, cozy atmosphere right into your home with the Scrolling Leaves Collection. Tantalizing aromas of scrumptious sweets blow across your tablescape, and airy window treatments draw your eye to the magnificent vision of fall’s radiance. Vibrant shades of olive, ember glow, and gold pair with an earthy, neutral oatmeal to provide the perfect color balance. Embracing the splendor of the season, these table linens and window treatments will enhance your dining room with the allure of autumn’s palette.

Exquisitely embroidered in crisp colors and embellished with intricate cutwork, the Scrolling Leaves Accents show off your table’s rich hue or the splendid scenery outside your window. With a variety of styles and sizes to choose from, you can keep those lovely autumn shades around for the entire season. Accentuate decadent food with oblong tablecloths, table runners, placemats, or napkins. Invite nature’s beauty into your home with curtain pairs, tailored valances, swag valance pairs, or ascot valances.

Scrolling Leaves Dining Room

Alongside the harvest season’s delicious dishes and outdoor abundance, you won’t need much to complement these lovely table linens and window treatments. If you want to add another aspect of the season to your dining space, however, consider a hanging lamp, rug, or nature-inspired wall art.

Although the Scrolling Leaves Collection is stunning all on its own, it also lends itself to a variety of decorating styles. Fully embrace the season with other autumnal decor such as napkin rings or wood serving trays. Let your Tuscan and Italian side shine through with wine rack storage furniture or olive wall art. Embody all things natural with leafy wall toppers or centerpieces.
