Entry hall inspiration

Posted on Thu, 21 Aug 2008 by KiM

Ashley emailed looking for a bit ‘o inspiration: “I was hoping you could do a post on entry halls. Right now my entry hall is beige and is in some serious need of change. Everything I keep finding is the outside entry, not interior. I can’t seem to find much in the way of examples, but you guys are the experts ;)”. Many people may overlook their entrance hall or just focus on it’s function rather than the design but HELLO????, it’s the first thing people see when they walk in your home. So I’m happy to hear Ashley wants to spice up her boring entry. Ashley, I hope these photos help you to banish the bland beige and spice things up. (Note: My favourites are above)

Thank you! These totally inspired me, I am going to paint the entry hall blue! I love it!

Thank you! These photos are great..lots of ideas here! I have a small entry..gorgeous leaded glass front door and french demilune cabinet…with mirror above..other than that it is boring..going to spruce it up with some artwork, a nice runner and perhaps a ceramic unbrella stand!!

I just adore your post.. always can take something away from it!
