First impressions are lasting. That is why an entryway or foyer should have a big visual impact on guests, but they are also often a busy control centre for daily life, so they need to be functional as well.  That’s a lot of multitasking for an often tiny space. With all this in mind, an entryway becomes the perfect place for going bold with your decorating choices and experimenting with clever storage and furniture ideas. Here are a few truly stunning entryways that make us want to pay these homes a visit.

How bright and cheery is this light filled entryway? Using a small console table makes the room feel spacious and allows for a large patterned rug to take centre stage.

Unified colour and a range of textures give this entryway a rustic and soothing feel. You’ll also notice that the homeowner has used curvy furniture and accessories to blend with the architectural features of the space.

Paring down furniture and accessories creates a clean and modern feel, but the patterned floor and ornate mirror add plenty of interest.
