First Impressions: Dazzle Your Entry Way

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.

Banish boring! Make your space pop using color as an invigorating element of surprise. Both of the spaces above are remarkable because they use color to wow! If you cannot or choose not to paint, you can add a pop of punchy color with vibrant wall art or bold lacquered furniture. If you want to set the mood for stunning, vivid accent colors in an entryway are a perfect way to get the style party started.
