This weekend, take inventory of your space and see if there is room for improvement. In addition to the inspiration board below designed to get your creative juices flowing, check my other articles 8 Ideas for a Small Entry and  8 Ideas for Lighting Your Entry for additional guidance. As always the comments section is open for questions, your thoughts, and your ideas. I’d love to hear from you. How do you plan to spruce up your entryway?

    Great topic that I haven’t seen covered anywhere else. Beautiful ideas for a space with a high risk of being uber bland AND makes a first impression of your home. Now if only I actually had an entryway space bigger than just a flat wall in my teeny tiny apartment.
