How to Make An Entrance – Design Tips

First impressions is not exclusive to good shoes and handshakes–they matter in a home. With only so many New England months to tackle the exterior we’ve been focusing our attention to lightening the color scheme and adding the right details. The flow of what outwardly appears continues to the #entryway.


Design techniques used on the front entrance are applied to the interior. Simply framed prints of eggs following the line of the staircase are clean, calm and keep to the neutral color scheme. Invest in a chandelier or quality lighting, which takes the drama above, dazzles the eye, and keeps your space clutter free. Bay windows are always appreciated to seat more guests and add a dash of color and style with thoughtfully appointed upholstery. Even better is to create storage beneath for valued organizational space in a small home.

A small entryway is simple and welcoming by selecting the right accents and neutral colors. (Rug from Dash & Albert).

A great chandelier adds impact. This simple beaded piece with rope trimming by Au Courant Interiors is not so fussy like a crystal or brass chandelier. Choose pieces that are small and practical, such as movable chairs, cushions and foot stools.

We painted the entryway door in the same shade of icy blue as the porch walls. The result is unexpected and happy.


Paint a door a vibrant shade, which is less of a commitment than an entire wall.
