Aside from the exterior, the entry gives the first impression of the home. In the Trailside Modern Coastal home from my partnership with Tri Pointe Homes, my aim was to set the stage for the design decisions I carried throughout the rest of the spaces. For this project, this meant bringing in earthy elements like weathered woods and woven baskets, greenery, and artwork that encompassed the coastal modern vibe I was going for.
When it comes to designing an entry, there are a few things I like to keep in mind:
- Keep It Functional – there needs to be a dedicated place for your most-used items like keys and wallets that can also stay organized and uncluttered. Think of storage baskets for bigger items, a bench for taking off and putting on shoes, and maybe a stylish catch-all for smaller items that keeps them hidden away.
- Make It Feel Like Home – Add some personal touches to your entryway to make your smile every time you walk through the door. Display a selection of family photos in a gallery wall and incorporate decor that is meaningful to you.
- Add a Mirror – If you’ve got a small entryway, one way to make it feel bigger is by adding in a mirror. It’s also a practical addition to the space that allows you to fit in one more glance-over before your head out the door.
