If you read my previous post, you would remember me promising a post of entry styling ‘must haves’. After sifting through countless images across different styles, I’ve found some common features when it comes to styling this area.
1. Console/hall table
This one goes without saying but still, I feel like it’s necessary to start here. Find a really good foundation piece to provide the base to the look your going for. It can be sleek and simple to suit a minimalist, modern theme or you might prefer a rustic, wooden style for a country or industrial style home.
2. Feature wall art / Mirror
If you have ever come across a stunning styled entry without either a beautiful piece of wall art or a feature mirror perched on top, I would love to see it! I have yet to come across a well put-together entry area that doesn’t have either of these.
3. Lamp or large vase
Perfect to add some dimension and also a great opportunity to add in another colour or some texture to add visual interest.
4. Decor accents
Basically because we have so many and need somewhere to put them. But on a serious note, some well chosen pieces can really enhance your chosen feature items (like wall art or larger items).
5. Plant / Natural element
This may just be me being biased but I think injection some nature into any space just makes it better. It definitely doesn’t have to be huge; even a little potted succulent can add more than you would think. Also don’t be limited to just what you can fit on the hall table itself. Often making the space look visually interesting is what is next to and under it.
6. Basket / Ottoman
If you have space under your hall table you can opt to have a storage basket or a pair of stools/ottomans. A simple was to incorporate more of your colour palette, whilst also increasing the amount of usable space in the area.
Do you think I’m missing anything from this list? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
