inviting entries.

Happy Monday! After spending much of the weekend working on our little apartment, I decided it was time to let you in on another design dilemma: our entry way. If my "inviting entries" Pinterest board is any indication, my entry inspiration is pretty eclectic. I even decided to dive a little deeper with my Houzz ideabook for this month. An entry is the first peek anyone gets into your home, so I feel extra pressure into making it great. {I hope I'm not the only one!} These photos are a few recent favorites...

My design dilemma is a funny one: our entry is essentially a circular space. Each of the walls are curved! I'm having a hard time committing to a piece of furniture that works perfectly in this space but may not down the road. I want to make sure we are buying pieces which will stand the test of time. With this in mind, I found 20 stellar statement pieces for an entry--six of which you see here. I can't pull the trigger on any just yet, so I would certainly love your input :)

What type of furniture do you have in your entry? Any advice on decorating curved walls?
As always, I can't wait to hear your insight! xoxo {av}

  1. Too funny, we are actually starting to dress up our hallway, and all we have is a console thus far, so we've been searching for the same sort of inspiration. Thanks for the links and ideas to check out!

  2. I love daydreaming about my future house- I can't wait to decorate an entryway, as silly as that may sound! xx

  3. In our entry way, we have my grandparents' old vintage cabinet filled with vintage china and vases as well as a desk that my mom spray painted black for the hall. We also have a small side table on the side of the cabinet that usually has fresh flowers and a few gifted knick knacks on it. It's a cute way to enter our house, and we always change it up in small ways for each season!

  4. My entry isn't really much of one at all. You open the door and to the immediate front of you (just enough for the door to swing open + a few inches) there's a wall with just my "Friends Welcome. Relatives By Appointment" wood sign. To the left is my coat closet and to the right is my living room. I wish I could have an entry way, I'd totally do the bench! And a tall side table. :)

  5. We actually enter the house through the mudroom. With that said, I personally I like the bench so you have a place to take your shoes off when coming in the house. However, I do wish our entry was large enough for a table, etc.

  6. Loving your inspiration photos here! I always think a dresser type table and a mirror is the perfect combination.
