Vintage Foyer / June 24, 2018 / Caylee Arnaud.
You’ll want to start by removing all of your winter and holiday décor. Décor related to any holiday or timely event should be taken down at the most two weeks after the holiday has ended. Keep this in mind as you change up your décor throughout the year. When decorating your entryway for spring, it’s a good time to give the area a refresh as well.
Turn a bookcase into entryway storage lockers. - This option is ideal if you live with multiple people (and especially if some of those people are children). You can check out the full tutorial at Polka Dot Chair, but the concept is simple: Purchase a few slim IKEA bookcases, stand them alongside one another, adjust the height of the shelves according to your needs, and voilà! You have DIY lockers with room for coats, backpacks, shoes, sports equipment, and everything in between.
As we move inside, you’ll want to pay special attention to the furniture you have to work with. Entryways and foyers are generally small spaces, so tables and benches are the most you’ll have here. The good news is that tables make a great stage for your spring entryway décor. To keep it simple, Wild recommends using fresh flowers. Place a beautiful spring bouquet in a glass vase to keep the look bright and bold, focusing the attention on the flowers. If your garden has already started blooming, you may want to pick some tulips and daffodils yourself. It will make for a great talking point as you greet visitors.
Store shoes in a vintage mail organizer - Disclaimer: Finding a gorgeous and intact antique mail organizer isn’t exactly easy. But we can still draw inspiration from the idea. If you can’t score your very own vintage mail sorter like Sincerely, Sara D, build one by following these instructions from Remodelaholic. Another option is to find another equally functional cubby shelf system (or wall hutch like the one that Abbi from Broad City uses in her bedroom) to store shoes and baskets of accessories.
