Let’s face it: first impressions are memorable. A stylish entryway is the key to setting the tone for the rest of your space. The aesthetic you create will warmly greet guests upon entrance and shows off your own personal style–whether that’s elegant, boho, glam, or minimalistic. The possibilities are endless!
Look for a table first to create a base to build upon. Whether your space is limited or grand, there’s an arrangement that will fit any dimension. We love the Alfonso console table for its neutrality, a perfect palette for decorating. Or, go for the Leif hall table that mixes two of our favorite elements–rustic farmhouse meets modern. For a more dramatic entrance, the Arielle or Jovanna console table brings in intriguing details and shape, the ideal canvas for adding personal touches. Swooooon.
Next, add a mirror to elongate the look and reflect light while adding the illusion of more space. Round mirrors are hot right now, and we’re all about a piece that brings in more textural accents. Try Jamie Young’s mirror with leather accents or a traditional look with the Prescott mirror from Arteriors. Want more of a neutral look? The Surya Layton wall mirror delivers stylistic elements with an all-mirrored look.
For the decor, feel free to take the reigns here and get as creative as you want. The first element we’re absolutely obsessed with is baskets. A natural basket not only adds natural elements into your space, but it’s also the ideal size for hidden storage of blankets, extra throw pillows (or hiding toys!) Other accents we recommend incorporating are vases, artwork, and decorative accents. A vase ties a room together with texture and color, while providing a vessel for showing off those farmer’s market flowers you pick up on weekends. Artwork or decorative accents liven up the space with a personal touch. We love trays, bookends, statues, etc. Find our recommendations for some of these pieces below!

Mirrors. As accent pieces or as functional necessities, they help maximize a space by making it appear larger and adding instant glam. In a large corridor or dining room, mirrors can create the feeling of grandeur when paired or as a set of three or more — think Versailles with its Hall of Mirrors. Mirrors obviously come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and styles, but for our statement pieces – we’ve gone BIG!
For our selects, we love the Arteriors Elana mirror as a pair above a double vanity sink for a new take on the traditional. The Gabby Decor Drake floor mirror adds intrigue to a wall without a window while the Arteriors Olympia mirror can easily make a statement above a master bed or a sofa.
