Five beautiful entryway styles

French entryway ideas

Entry ways are easily made beautiful with accent pieces of furniture, grouped collections and cleverly positioned mirrors.

1. The modern rustic maison

These threshold spaces give people the first impression of your taste and style, and are spaces that can easily be as beautiful as a living space or dining room.

A vintage bench seat is a stylish addition to any entryway. The perfect place for your guests to leave their bags or a spot to slip on your shoes before heading out the door.

Gold and marble are back in a big way, and you can easily see why. Gilt wood and sunburst mirrors are the perfect way to add a splash of warm gold.
