The entryway is the perfect place to establish a welcoming statement for your guests. We chat with Debbie DeLong of Designs by Imagine That to get some tips on how to style the perfect entry.

Step 1:

Start with a color scheme that flows with the rest of your home.

Step 2:

Select a credenza for your entryway, one that goes with your home’s furnishings and is a functional spot where you can place essentials.

Step 3:

Add art to play with shapes and various colors in the room, or you could add a mirror instead of artwork to make the space seem larger and brighter.

Step 4:

Keep adding layers with rugs and lighting to add warmth to the space.

Step 5:

The final touch is to add items to the credenza itself. Vases with flowers are a great addition to welcome guests into your home. Debbie suggests keeping it simple and operates on the less is more philosophy.
