Making An Entrance...

Via House to Home

When you see a fabulous entry you just know that the rest of the house is going to excite the senses. This area cannot be overlooked when decorating a home. I just love the wallpaper in this entry way - adds drama and impact from the first moment the door opens.



How gorgeous is this entry! More stunning wallpaper with lovely accent pieces like the black draws, mirror and chair. You just know that the rest of this house is going to be fabulous.


All available space has been used to make this entry beautiful. The tiles are sensational and busy enough that the rest of the decor needs to be simple so as not to detract them. Love the door as well.


How sweet is this! Love the white floorboards and the vintage typewriter on the desk - all looks very English. All images via House to home.

I lived in a house in Melbourne with a huge entrance room that I really miss. Here I have the typical Queenslander skinny long hallway which is too narrow to even put a table in. I dream about entrances like these!

It seems like the entry can be a difficult room to decorate but you are so right about it being the first impression. I'll be taking a closer look at mine this afternoon. Maybe I can incorporate some of the loveliness of the ones you've shown.

I love the stone floor in the second photo!

I like the concept of the drapery over the front door in picture 3. What a novel concept.
