Entryway Inspiration from All Angles

By Kealia Reynolds

First impressions are huge, and when it comes to your home, that first impression is made the second somebody steps through your entryway. We’ve been inspired by the entryways and foyers from our very own collection of house tours and wanted to share snapshots for your inspiration. Here are our favorites.

Why we like it

It’s sleek and modern, but the homeowner has added personal touches to make the space more inviting. The chocolatey hardwood floors against the white walls creates a clean and open hallway while other details like a decorative hanging chandelier and vase filled with tumbling yellow flowers inject color into a neutral-toned space.

Why we like it

The foyer, like most of this home, is flooded with natural light and modernized while staying true to its mid-century origins. Every detail, including the punched porcelain pendant, the brass planters, and the Hygge & West geometric wallpaper, is eye-catching and adds to the home’s mid-mod style. Even the cream-colored credenza and crisp hallway table follow clean, mid-century lines.

Why we like it

It’s simple, comfortable, charming, and functional. For homeowners who are constantly on the go, a wooden bench for putting on shoes and a coat rack to hang essential layers are all that’s necessary.

Why we like it

The home opens on a grandiose entryway centered by a floating spiral staircase dotted with family portraits. If I lived in this house, I’d definitely be sliding down those bannisters every other day. Unlike most foyers we’ve seen, this one is most impressive in terms of being spacious and whimsical.

Why we like it

Maybe it’s the mixture of colors, textures, and shapes that make the Applegates’ foyer a sight to behold. Whether you’re struck by the star-shaped prints on the ceiling or the anvil-shaped entry table purchased from a second-hand store in South Carolina, we can’t help but think of Anna’s response on how she decorates: “Nothing is more fun to me than to see an old piece “reinvented” through new fabric, a new lampshade, a new frame…this “mix” of old and new adds dimension, interest, and life to any space.”

Why we like it

A simple side table paired with a snake plant adds a dash of color in this otherwise white hallway. The lack of décor is essential in creating a clean and uncluttered space and pairs well with Lindley’s decorating style: minimal—very minimal.
