Happy May! How was your weekend? How is it already May? We’re having a relaxing time here in beautiful Hawaii. It was one of the best weekends I’ve had in awhile! They always go too fast, don’t they? To kick off the work week, I’ve got a new 10 Pins post for you- packed with inspiration I found on Pinterest! I decided to choose a specific type of room to feature today, and obviously I’ve had our entryway renovation on my mind. This month, I rounded up some seriously dreamy and aspirational entry vignettes… some are small, some are open concept, some include a pretty staircase, and all of them have excellent styling. Click through for my favorites!
#1 // Striped Entryway
This entry designed by Mark D. Sikes has been a big source of inspiration for me. I love the simplicity and classic nature of this space… along with all of the neutral warm tones. It feels timeless!
#2 // Small Entryway
This entry is proof that you don’t need a lot of space to squeeze in a lot of style. This small entryway is functional, beautiful, and well decorated. I’m digging all of the textural elements here.
Do you ever use your main entryway, or are there multiple entrances into your home? Funny enough, Emmett & I never use our front door or main entrance… we always enter our home through the garage. Back entrances are perfect for storage and a more casual look- like a mudroom. I love how functional this entry room is, and I also appreciate the designerly touch of lacquered cabinets.
If you’re looking for entryway styling ideas, this traditional example includes all of the necessities: a chair to put on shoes, a chest for storage & styling, an umbrella holder, and plenty of personality. That intaglio and vintage art gallery wall is so charming!
#5 // Bench in Entryway
This entryway feels so warm and inviting despite the minimal decor. The millwork and finishes really speak for themselves in this historic looking home. In narrow spaces like this, a bench makes perfect sense.
#6 // Entryway Stair Vignette
This is partially how I envision styling our entryway once it’s finished… I’ll be using our existing round table, and I’d like to include a seat or two of some sort (for putting on shoes). By the way- are you a shoes or no shoes house? We’re no shoes in our house. I was just curious! I’m liking the use of oversized branches and florals styled on the entry table.
#7 // Casual Cottage Entryway
If your home is more casual or short on space, don’t underestimate the functionality of installing a couple hooks by the door. We did the same thing at our previous home… two hooks and a credenza was really all we really had space for, but it worked well! It also offers a fuss-free look.
#8 // Open Entryway
If your home is open concept, I like the idea of using tables, lighting, and rugs or runners to better define the space. Suzanne Kasler designed the perfect example that features a functional entryway that doesn’t detract from the overall space. It’s a small moment that leads to an even better view.
#9 // Tudor Entryway
This tiny tudor entryway is so bright and happy. You know I love that black barley twist table! I’m into the pops of yellow- using florals or branches that mimic permanent finishes (like tile) is a great way to create a cohesive vignette.
#10 // Townhome Entryway
Last, but not least… I will forever be inspired by my friend Josh’s townhome entry. It classical, neutral, the millwork is impeccable, and he always does a fantastic job styling. Some things to note- the scale of the light fixture, the table, and the oversized dried hydrangea arrangement. It certainly makes a statement.
I hope you enjoyed this month’s 10 Pins! As I’m planning ahead for next month, would you like to see another specific room or do you prefer a mix of different types of spaces? Let me know in the comment section below. I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead! My plan is to soak up as much sunshine and salt water as I possibly can before we head home.
