Hey there! It’s been a while because I’ve been busy not only with work, but also trying to enjoy the summer! I hope that you are too! :)
I’ve always felt that the entrance to your home should reflect who YOU are. It’s the first thing that people see when entering your space — so why not give a glimpse of your style!
Here are my top three interior design tips for creating a beautiful entryway in your home. Enjoy!
Ha! You knew I’d start with that right? Greet your guests with an area filled with art that you love. The photo above is of my entry, where I have a large scale piece of art by Julie Schumer (one of my favorite artists!) . Don’t rush out and buy the first thing that you see. Wait for the right piece to find you. In my case, I’ve had a rotating gallery of pieces in this space, until I found this piece 3 years ago — and now it is here to stay!
A great source for original art is Saatchi Art. The site features a variety of price points and you can search by genre, and art type (i.e., painting, photography, sculptures, drawing). I always encourage my interior design clients to invest in original art. Original art is the perfect way to create a unique space.

2. Eclectic Furniture
Anchor your art with a beautiful console or chest. In my case, I’ve inherited a bunch of beautiful asian tansu chests from my mom. I had a console shelf built into the wall so that I could showcase a sweet tansu chest underneath.
I’ve used some of these consoles and chests in recent projects and they are show stoppers!
Your entry is a perfect place to put a statement making jewel of a light fixture. Be it a chandelier, flush mount or semi-flush mount — find one that speaks to you! These are a few swoon worthy light fixtures:
