I love to answer reader emails especially when there’s a takeaway for others. Today’s comes from Kari: “Hey Kate, we have a new single story house with a blank wall in the entry and I’d like it to be functional and welcoming but really nice looking too. Do you have any ideas on where to start?”
Sure do Kari! The entry is an opportunity to make a first impression so embrace it, but also make sure it works for you. There are a few no fail formulas for styling a fabulous foyer, here are some to consider.
The first is the console table + statement mirror combination. Most console tables are shallow so they will take up less square footage in an entry. They also provide a horizontal surface to place keys and mail and what we all really want: a pretty vignette.
