The entryway is overlooked as one of the most used spaces in your home. It’s where you welcome guests to your home. You also spend time there as you get ready to leave the house each day. Your own entryway probably has more potential than you realize. We want to open up the door to possibilities for you. We have 12 rooms full of international inspiration that will make you rethink your entryway. Let's take a look!

1. Refined

A refined entryway can also pack a punch. This room features a funky mirror, colourful accessories, and a wallpapered accent wall. Make sure to have a functional and beautiful place to put your mail and keys by the door.

2. Elegant

Symmetry defines this elegant entryway. Sleek and narrow tables line the hall, filling up and decorating the space perfectly.

3. Quirky

This entryway packs so much personality into a small space! The black and white tiles set the mood instantly. Unique light fixtures and a teal door are two more unforgettable features that we love.

4. Contemporary

Check out this contemporary entryway. It has strong character thanks to the black and white palette and a blue accent from the railing. Adding  in an oversized light fixture like this makes a statement in any home.

5. Natural accents

Use nature to give your entryway some character. Woven baskets, details from the beach, and warm colours make this entryway intimate and evocative.

6. Scandinavian

Bright whites and touches of wood make this entrance way stun. Scandinavian style is easy to adopt in any space.  This tiny entryway has a little bench where you can get your shoes on! Never forget the practical details of your foyer.

7. Coloured

If you don’t have much of an entryway in your home then use colour to help visually separate the space. It makes the home look more put together.

8. Glimpses

Another tip for smaller homes is to gently separate the entryway from the rest of your house with a divide. You can catch a glimpse of the living room through this divide. It doubles as a storage unit--a perfect solution for an apartment!

9. Artsy

Transform your entryway into a gallery by hanging prints and bringing in artistic elements. The golden tone of the floor works well with the warm notes from the art.

10. Design

Having a focus on the architectural elements in your home is an effective way to create a beautiful entrance. Check out the staircase in this room!

11. Rustic

Using rustic elements in your entryway sets the mood for a casual space. The wood and whitewash walls in this entryway create a homey look that reminds us of a medieval farm house. This is a look that makes us want to discover the rest of the house!

12. Eclectic

This room is playful and iconic. We love the graphic print of the wall paper and the round mirror. Any visitor transports into a fun and tropical atmosphere as soon as they come inside!
