I love this time of year. Even in Southern California there is a little briskness in the air, pumpkins and mums can be seen on porches and wonderful smells start wafting out of kitchens. It’s a time to appreciate nature’s bounty and beauty. It’s a time to get cozy and welcome family and friends into our homes. Your entry is the first thing your guests see as they come in your home. With a few simple steps, you can create a welcoming entry that will invite your guests to come in and stay awhile.
1. A piece of furniture is a must have for any entry, large or small. It can be a dresser, table, chair, or bench. Something to anchor the space, and help make a statement.
2. Art and lighting are also key in making a welcoming space. Lighting can be in the form of table lamps, floor lamps or sconces. Art can be sculptural, framed paintings or family photos, a mirror, or a combination.
3. Lastly, but not necessary, add a rug to define the space.
