Sometimes small spaces have huge impact. When we saw this recent post on entryways on Decorology, it got us thinking about transforming an often underutilized space with sensational—yet understated—design.
The first three images, from Rue, Elle Décor, and High Gloss (and highlighted on Decorology), are all about elegant minimalism—a clean-lined table or settee, a well-placed decorative object or piece of art, a vase of sleek flowers, and a bit of shine.
The last image is from Annie’s book, and has a more rustic, lived-in feel. The cool white walls are balanced by a warm, distressed-finish pine bureau with vintage ring pulls, a creamy sofa with textured and patterned pillows, and an ethnic rug in tans and pale greens (a nice play off the fir green of the wide-plank floor). The black-and-white artwork on both walls manages to catch the eye without taking away from other elements, like the skinny chrome lamp, textured pottery, and whimsical pig doorstop. We can’t think of a better way to welcome guests—or yourself—home.
