Thursday’s Theme: Inspiring Entryways for 2019

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

The start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to take stock of our belongings, clean out our storage and do some organizing. The entryway to your home is a great place to start, because it’s likely one of the smaller, or at least less cluttered areas of the house, and it’s the space that welcomes you home at the end of every day. Today we’re sharing some inspiring entryways that offer ways to keep coats, shoes and accessories accessible but tidy, as well as ideas for keeping the space fresh and inviting all year long.

Shelf, cupboard, hanging and drawer storage – this entryway has it all! The practical inspiration we draw from it is that sometimes an exploration of available storage options is necessary and helpful in finding the the one(s) that work for your family and lifestyle. Of course, we also love the wall art, flowers, small table and floor mats – these types of accessories make any entryway more welcoming.

The flowers and basket really caught our eye in this entryway, and then we noticed the tags hanging from the baskets on the top shelf. If you do utilize overhead basket storage – which is great for seasonal decor or items only used a few times a year – adding labels like these charming tags will give a more refined look to the space and prevent you from having to pull down each basket to remember what’s inside.

Painting is always an option for refreshing a room, and whether you’re painting an entire wall of storage, a bench, or your front door, a splash of [any] color gives your entryway a new mood for the new year.

Is 2019 the year of the wine entryway? It’s a little too early to tell, but regardless, we love how this wood bench contrasts with the white beadboard wainscoting and rug, and how the pillow seems to pull everything together. It’s remarkable what a simple, sturdily constructed bench can do for an entryway.

A great use for an old dresser or a vintage find; this entryway is brightened with the use of the mirror – which breaks up the beige color scheme with its rich wood frame – and vibrant rug. An accent lamp, small basket and a plant are great additions to the room; and highlight how style and function can coexist satisfactorily in your home.

We will always feel inspired by wood grains and stately front doors. We love the height of the cabinet and that top shelf – floor to ceiling storage is definitely a good look in a spacious entryway.

And we couldn’t resist this extra dog-friendly space – maybe it will inspire Fido to be more careful with dripping water and spreading dog hair this year. We can hope, right?
