When you first enter a space, that is the magic moment where the ambiance is set, as if a spell has been cast. The first impression of your home establishes a tone for the whole house and, as the saying goes, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Whether you have a formal foyer or a casual entrance hall, or even if you enter directly into a living space, it is a design opportunity to make your home memorable and chic.

The entry above uses color, lighting and an artful arrangement of white frames to greet homeowners and guests with an inviting and pretty look. The mix of modern and shabby-chic elements is a fresh way to establish personality in the space, while the colors welcome you with a well-styled warmth. Be conscientious of lighting. An entry way should provide ample light without being so glaring as to feel unnerving and create harsh shadows.
