Read on for a few of our favorite ways to decorate this all-important spot—and get inspired to give your own entryway a stylish refresh.
#1. Pick A Theme
Sticking with a single, unifying motif, color or design in an entryway is a highly original way to introduce guests to your style from the minute they walk in the door. Since most entries are on the smaller side, they’re ideal candidates for a visiual impact either from a bold wall color or in this case, a patterned wallpaper moment.
#2. Choose A Palette
Paint is a great way to set the entry hall apart from the adjoining rooms, and can also act as the jumping-off point for the furniture and accessories in that space. Pulling in touches of the wall color as part of your entryway vignette makes for an especially pulled-together look.

#3. Work With Size And Symmetry
You can use symmetry to create order in your entryway with matching pairs of lamps and accessories. The perfect entry is a mini-moment unto itself, and an oversize mirror is one of the quickest ways to accomplish this. Don’t be afraid to go big—you won’t be sorry.
#4. Work In Groups
A well arranged grouping of decorative plates or smaller sized mirrors is sure to catch the eye in an entry, not to mention reflecting extra bits of light into the space. There are an endless number of ways to hang groupings, so it’s best to play around with paper cutouts until you find the arrangement most pleasing to you.
#6. Make It Multi-Task
Your entry is the first line of defense when it comes to keeping muddy shoes out of the living room. Multi-task by installing furniture pieces like ammoirs, trunks and ottomans which provide ample storage for shoes, gloves, and other essentials. This will keep the rest of your home looking pristine, no matter the season.
#7. Personalize Your Space
Consider your entryway a chance to show off to guests what matters most to you from the minute they walk in. Books, artwork, and favorite objects are always great additions to the space, regardless of whether it’s a grand entry or an apartment nook.
