Your entryway is a transitional space, a bridge between the outside and the indoors. It serves as an ideal space for a few personal flourishes. Not only is it the first space that the eye of a visitor beholds, but it reveals the character of the decorating that is to follow. First impressions are important; when a person enters a home they judge it within the first few seconds! Although the entrance, foyer, vestibule, or mudroom may seem like a small and insignificant space, it carries a huge responsibility.
Fortunately, entry decorating can be broken down into a few simple components: wall color, floor covering, furniture, wall decor, and lighting. Although entryways are usually restricted in size; this limitation actually works to the decorator’s advantage. If you want to fill your guests with anticipation for what’s on the other side of your door even before it swings open, browse our collection of farmhouse entryway decorations to fire up your imagination.
