Quick Tip: Re-purposed Rubber Boot Tray | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

A rubber boot tray can do more than hold dirty boots and shoes. Use it in your car when transporting plants to prevent dirt and leaves from making a mess, or use it under a pet’s food and water dishes to prevent the contents from spilling onto your floors.

Get the Look: Simple Country Entryway

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

For a breezy entryway that looks put together but not cluttered, focus more on items that keep a room grounded and the rest will fall into place. Take a look below for inspiration, and to see how you can get the look with home accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

Rustic Country Huntboard | Get the Look | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThe console table above makes a beautiful, welcoming statement in this entryway, and its dark finish contrasts nicely with the airy, light colors of the room. The distressed surface coordinates with the hardwood floors, which gives a softer look to the bulky piece. Our Rustic Country Huntboard offers the same effect, as well as storage options for linens, knick knacks and other items. For a pop of color, an area rug is the perfect solution. Our USA made Portico Cablelock Braided Rug creates the same brightness and color scheme as the rug above, and will last under the feet of numerous guests and family members.

As you can see, the space above is decorated quite minimally, but it still emits a warm, welcoming feeling to give a great first impression. A vase or large container filled with greens and tall plants (Bells of Ireland, White Muscari, real or Artificial Grass) placed on the table adds a natural look that can be easily switched out season by season. Flanked by two lanterns with pillar candles inside, the tabletop is styled simply yet beautifully.

A mirror enhances the open feel of the room, and gives you a chance for a last-look on the way out the door. A mirror works best here (as opposed to wall art or a print) because of its glass lantern complements, natural wood elements throughout the space, and the ability of this home accent to spread natural light – of which you can never have enough.

Consider incorporating these pieces into your entryway, or use the tips and suggestions to enhance the design of an existing space in your home.
