I believe the entrance of a home is so important. It’s the first thing your guests see. The one thing that says “Hello!” and “Welcome to my home!” Big house or small, big budget or little, anyone can make their entrance grand. There are a few key elements that make a warm cozy and inviting.

  • Table/Bench/Chair

You need something to ground the space. A place where guests can throw their purse or coat. It doesn’t have to be a coat rack or a hook. It can just be something they use to drape or set their items on.

  • The warmers as I call them!

These are the things that really make the space feel cozy.

  1. A blanket
  2. Pillows
  3. A book/books
  4. Candles

And another key element to a space:

  • Art.

It can be in the form of a picture, a wreath, a framed blessing to those who enter your home, or a set of hooks to hang items. Something that ties the space together, and I prefer with color, but you can also do a lovely monochromatic entry way.
