4 Fundementals of a Great Entry Way (Plus 25 ideas for Inspiration!)

4 steps to a Pin worthy entry way! Great decor ideas for any size entry way

Your entry way is the first thing guests see when they enter your home. Whether you have a huge foyer or a 4 foot wall to work with, there are so many ways you can turn the space into a welcoming area, full of character.

You can do this with greenery, a lamp, a vase, lantern, candles… there are so many choices. As mentioned earlier, let the heights create layers over your main focal point. Here are some great examples of how this can really make the space:
