What does your entry way say about your style? Crowded with tchotchkes ? Overrun with shoes? In this post we will show you quick ways to streamline your foyer and give it a little kick while keeping it functional.
We all dream of having the grand entrance fit for a king, but that’s not always realistic. Small entries are typical for city dweller and beach lovers alike. So how do you make an impact in a compact space? Rule #1, get rid of the table with knickknacks galore. Simplify with a few balanced accessories, a mirror or art work for the wall, and touch of storage or stool for removing shoes.
You’ve removed the clutter, now add the pop. No matter the scale being grand or petit, the Jigsaw team are big fans of wall paper. It’s serves many purposes; style, texture and personality! Adding wallpaper creates a bit of whimsy to the space and can serve as artwork, leaving the need for only a few finishing touches.
For an element of surprise, decorating the ceiling creates instant wow factor. We love this gold leaf ceiling in the entrance of this small apartment. The gold gives a regal appearance while remaining simple and understated.
Wallpaper is not only for the walls. The ceiling space in an entryway is usually somewhat separate from the rest of the home, so a little wall paper goes a long way. The herringbone paper in the image below is from target and is removable. If you are tired of it in a year, simply remove it!
Don’t be afraid of the dark either; dark charcoal or black walls make a statement in an entryway creating an artistic mood and setting the tone for the remainder of your trendsetting pad.
The options are endless for the standout entryway. While following a few simple rules of keeping it minimal and meticulous, yet filled with personality, your entrance is sure to be welcoming.
