Staging for Impact - The Entryway

Making An Impression

The front entryway is the first thing you see when you enter a home. This space makes the largest impact on guests. There are many beautiful ways to set up your entry space. I’ve seen some really beautiful photo collages, and built in benches, but our space is too small for either of those. In our home, there are beautiful stairs right when you open the door. I love the dark stair treads against the white risers, I love the dark railing and iron balusters. But, it still felt a little plain when you entered the front door. I just knew it was missing something.

Finding The Perfect Piece

So, this weekend I finally found the time to set the space up as I had envisioned it. I searched high and low and FINALLY found the perfect console table. It seriously took me 4 months to find this table. I knew I wanted a mirrored table, but I couldn’t find the style I wanted -glitzy and a little glamorous without being over the top. This beauty came from Home Goods. I anchored the space with a picture that fits the size of the table perfectly. The catchy geometric pattern on the lampshade draws the eye, and it’s accented with the plant and shiny chrome pineapple! I’m looking for some old books to put on the other side of the table. But in the meantime I love the way it turned out! What do you think?! What does your entry look like?

Happy Decorating!
