Entry Way Inspiration that You’ll want to Try in Your Home!

Hello, March! It’s hard to believe we are in the 3rd month of 2013 already, isn’t it? While we were posting all about Anthro Love during February, I’ve been working on my first home project for 2013 – our entry way.  I’m so excited to start sharing the projects with you!

There are really two spaces that make up our entry way; the garage entrance and the front entrance. Our home is a split level layout. When we were house shopping, this layout seemed to be at least 50% of the homes that were for sale in Lexington. Is that the case everywhere? I was not a fan of this layout at all. But, the house was a great deal and it offered us most of our wants and needs, so we went ahead and bought a split level. (And I haven’t regretted it, it has been a great home!)

Since the two entries share wall space and stairs I want them to seem like one cohesive space, from a décor standpoint. As a family, we typically use the garage entrance and our guests use the front entrance. So, with that in mind, a lot of the function needs to be built in to the garage entry way.

I’ve been pinning some inspiration on my entry way board. I’ll share some of my favorites!

I love the vintage art hanging below the hooks and above the bench from Flowerpatch Farmgirl. The graphic rug is a nice contrast to all of the weathered pieces {count this as graphic rug #1}.

I love this mix of vintage frames and modern art from Caitlin Wilson — like the big, pink ampersand and the gold leaf LOVE print. I also like all of the shiny gold elements. And, of course, {graphic rug #2}.

Again a graphic rug {#3} alongside more neutral and weathered pieces, Earnest Home Co.

I like some cute duck accessories, but these aren’t it for me. However, I do so love the folded quilts laying on the bench (via Country Living). It just gives me a feeling of comfort. Also, notice the vintage art hanging over the bench again?

How about this gorgeous high gloss blue door by Suellen Gregory?

Don’t you just love the pop of that graphic rug {#4, if you’re still counting}, from The Everygirl. An entry definitely needs a mirror for a hair and makeup check on the way out the door. And I love that wire basket for holding ballet flats.

This rug is not-quite-as-graphic, but we’ll count it anyway, just for fun {#5}. What a great mix of textures in this photo? I’m especially liking the greenery, basketweave tote, and wooden stool up in front of that huge, modern city print.

So I feel confident this entry way will include a graphic rug {wink wink}, some vintage artwork and lots of texture — but you’ll have to stick around to see how it all turns out.

Love all your inspiration pics....I think the first two are my favorites. My foyer is one of my next projects, too, so I'm also on the lookout for ideas :)
