Pinspire Me: Creating an Inviting Entryway

Hey y’all! I would like to share my newest obsession tonight. Well the obsession has been growing, thanks a lot Pinterest!, for quite some time, but I feel like I am inspired enough to start working toward achieving my own personal look. I guess I should explain what I mean…I have been hoarding a ton of inspiring entryway photos. As of right now, my entryway is not attractive or functional. This, my friends, is changing very soon. My current household goal: create an inviting/functional/attractive entryway by the end of the year. My hope is that by sharing this with y’all tonight, I will hold myself accountable to the goal and see it to completion by New Years Eve.

Anyhoo, here are a few photos collected from Pinterest of entryways that have inspired this new project.



I love love love everything about this. It seems like such an easy yet inviting look. It makes me feel like it is super easy to achieve something similar. I mean, if EveryGirl is featuring it, its totally stylish and appropriate.


Sigh, I wish I owned this mirror. Isn’t it gorgeous?! This is such a pretty entryway. It makes me think that I don’t have to find the perfect table, I can use pretty fabric to cover the table and all my shoes.


So this is probably the most functional of them all. Hooks for coats, a place for mail and everything. It is not the most presentable, but totally doable.


Y’all may recognize this photo from my most inspiring spaces list a few months ago.  As you can see, it is still inspiring me. I just love that yellow table, it is also the perfect size for my tiny entryway. And the gallery wall definitely caught my attention.


Correction: this is the winner! I wish I could re-create this, paint job and all. That little table is perfect for a little mail and won’t let me clutter it up. And that beautiful owl makes me want to buy umbrellas to store in there.

This site also explains the entryway as the most important spot in your home to decorate. It is the first impression to your guests and it provides refuge from the outside.


This is another one of my all time faves. I love that ottoman, especially because I can see myself using one daily to put on/take off my shoes. And there goes that owl again. The vases and the mirror are so cohesively put together and make the space look bigger with those reflections. Love.

I must be honest, this project is a tad bit overwhelming to take on. I am so glad I decided to find some inspiring spaces to help me out. One site even had a list of what a successful entryway includes: a cool mirror, favorite art print, interesting hooks, and good looking baskets. I think this will be my starting point, including ottoman and super cool table.

I hope you have enjoyed this list. Is there anything that you are looking to get done in your own home this year? Please share and feel free to bounce off your own ideas! That’s it for tonight, I hope you all have a great weekend! I am hoping for a relaxing one myself!
