Entries are usually the smallest room in the house, so carefully select pieces that balance both form and function. A mirror reflects the light and provides a spot for one last glance at hair and makeup, while a bench provides a perch for pulling on boots. Take the time to find pieces that have an interesting shape or patina to create visual interest.
Find a unique vase or vessel that fits the space and make it a permanent fixture. Select a special piece, and then change the contents of the vase seasonally. Think branches with colorful leaves in the fall or cherry blossoms in the spring. The entry is the perfect spot for using carefully curated lighting. Be creative while searching for unusual wall sconces, a vintage chandelier, or that one-of-a-kind table lamp.
