Make a lasting first impression!

The entry or front hall of your home is the very first thing someone sees when visiting your house for the first time so make it special and make a lasting first impression. It´s in the entrance that your guests get a feel for who you are and what the rest of the house will look like.

Don´t be afraid to be bold and use strong colors, paint the floor in a cool pattern, use console tables for a spot to drop your keys and decorate with mirrors or a matching pair of lamps. Last but not least, put some focus on great accessories that say something extra about your personal style, like the fun Owl umbrella stand. There´s nothing more boring than inpersonal homes, so have fun with it and make it a reflection of who you are!
