Handmade Textiles, Design and Daily Inspiration
Today, I am going to share with you some ideas about how you can make your entryway feel absolutely organized and perfect as you walk in the door. This is something that I work on at home a lot, by removing unwanted objects and organizing clutter. I love it when I enter a space and get a feeling right away, especially if it is functional and unique.
Here are 5 simple steps to make your entryway more appealing as you walk in the door, so you can take a deep breath relax and enjoy your home more!
When working on my client Aerin's entryway, we took this approach to make her space feel great!
1. Organize shoes with a storage cabinet, baskets or shoe rack.
2. Create wall storage with coat racks or hook to organize, hats, scarves, backpacks and bags.
3. Decorate walls by adding a mirror or floating shelves. It make the entryway feel larger and more inviting.
4. Address the floors, by adding carpet runner or doormat to keep floors clean plus add texture or color. We cozied up the wood floor with a long denim rug runner- like this one.
5. Accessorize with trays, bowls, and baskets.
Add a vase with fresh flowers. At the moment, personally like these felt storage bowls. We added in a long basket below the bench too.
I loved the challenge of organizing her entrance because it inspired me to design a range of walnut coat racks and floating mirrors. The walnut coat rack was designed around our need for a wooden piece that felt organic, modern and had a variety of tonal qualities. In this way, the coat rack pulled the other wood pieces, the bench and the shoe storage together for us.
Here is the complete shopping list of the pieces that we used.
Below, you can see how the whole space came together with their front door and existing architecture.
I will share my entryway redo is coming along and I will share it with you very soon.
