Behold, the humble entryway—for a space that can do so much for us, it really doesn’t get a lot of love. At its most basic, it’s a place to dump your mail and set down your bags before you head into the more living-oriented parts of your home; on a more philosophical level, it’s the first impression guests (and you!) will receive of your home and sets the tone for the rest of your living space. Unfortunately (and much like last week’s outdoor space redo), most of us probably have less space than we need and even less than we want, which makes it more difficult to create a well-edited, tidy and multi-functional space that is still beautiful and reflective of the rest of your [copycat] chic pad ;)
This entryway is my most affordable room redo to-date, yet also one of the most eye-catching. There is plenty of space and small storage to collect keys, sunglasses, and other miscellaneous items; there’s a mirror for last-minute touch-ups and to reflect the light of the lamp, which in turn eliminates any fumbling in the dark for the nearest switch; and plenty of eye candy in the form of willow branches and that graphic striped bin, while the dark accent wall color adds a dose of drama and contrast. All in all, it’s a perfect example of how your entryway can be thoroughly grown-up and sophisticated while still being practical and budget-friendly.
