Start with casual organizers and hooks in light or weathered hues for a beach-inspired aesthetic. The rattan drawers of the Corvaserro Storage Cabinet will hold stray articles and keep them out of sight. Hang your keys, wraps, or parasols from the Shoreline Treasures Wall Hooks, so that the items you need most are within easy reach. Step onto the skid-resistant Rest, Relax, Refresh Foam Comfort Mat to kick off or slip on your sandals. The fun lighthouse and starfish design wonderfully complements the coastal entryway theme.

Guide the eye upward with functional wall pieces that resemble driftwood or boardwalk planks. The Relax on Beach Time Wall Clock is hand-assembled in the USA from local natural pallet wood and features cool hues. Leave messages to your family on the Weathered Chalkboard, and use the included clips to dangle notes or your favorite beach photos.

Since this splashy command center is not just utilitarian, remember to sprinkle in some beach-kissed decorative wall plaques. The four-piece Beach Memories Wall Plaque Set features realistic, dimensional resin starfish, along with coastal quotes like “You can shake the sand from your shoes but it never leaves your soul.”

Entryway Decorating Idea
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.

Make a Grand Entrance to Your Home

A common welcome mat might get the job done, but why not give newcomers a little taste of grandeur? Add a dash of gravitas to your front entry with one of these robust relics, and you’ll have every onlooker longing to see what’s inside…

1. Entryway Accents: These statuesque elements look stately when positioned near or on either side of the doorway. As though plucked from the mouth of some forgotten temple, the Lions at Guard Sculptures harbor an ancient knowledge in their steady gaze and noble profiles. Taut tendons and rippling musculature give these stoic beasts an air of realism, while their weathered sand finishes convey quiet impact.

2. Doormats and Stair Treads: For drama felt in every footfall, outfit your entryway with stair treads and doormats. The recycled rubber Tuscany Stair Treads and Doormats are platforms of cobblestone fringed by cool-toned pebbles. Ascending your front steps or pooling outward from the threshold, these treads and mats beckon all into the arid reaches of your own Tuscan villa.

3. Address Plaques: Those standard black digits might whimper your house number into the streets, but the LaRoyal House Number Plaques will brandish your address with finesse. The bronze- or black-finished base is an ornate backdrop of twining scrolls. Raised gold or silver numbers display your house number. For weather and tarnish resistance, all plaques are finished with a protective powder coat.

4. Planters and Plant Stands: Perfect for displaying greenery, planters and plant stands give entryways a natural flourish. The Classic Roman Column Pedestal is antiquated and stately, alluring to time-honored architecture. With its scrolling volutes and ornate leaves, the ornamentation on this ionic column echoes the lush florals with which you will crown it.

All of these and more are the items necessary to spark a theatrical presence right at your front door. The outdoor area is an extension of your inner living space, a preview of sights soon to behold. So, tantalize your visitors. Make their every entrance a grand entrance.
