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.
