I have an entryway table that just never looks right. It seems simple enough; a collection of vases, some pictures, a mirror maybe…but the real trick is knowing how to pull it all together and keep it that way. It’s just a table, but it’s also the first thing people see when they walk into your home. In my house it’s a dumping ground for keys and book bags and papers and despite my greatest efforts to keep it clutter free…clutter always finds its way back. Here are a few entryway designs that I would love to try and recreate…not just for the style but for the practicality and storage space as well.
I really like the monochromatic look of this set up and how it allows the large portrait to take center stage. The big storage boxes would be great for umbrellas and rain boots and they really help balance everything out.
This is so beautiful and balanced but a little overcrowded. To make this work, I would lose some of the smaller pieces in the front and add storage underneath. I love the lamps.
Really great for an apartment or town home or any home that has limited space by the door. The drawers are perfect for organization and the mirrors running up the wall make the space look much larger.
I adore the look of unfinished wood and the accompanying terracotta really adds to the earthiness of this design. There’s something very peaceful about natural tones and bringing a bit of the outdoors in as you enter the home. Again, good storage space with the drawers and basket underneath.
I did a post on dip dyed furniture and this is one of the pieces I featured. I love it; it makes the table a focal point whether or not the surface is decorated. Again, in the absence of drawers I would add storage underneath to keep the table clutter free.
When my kids grow up and move out I will have this table and just throw my stuff on the floor… : )
