Big Changes to a Small Entryway

Our entryway isn't big or spacious, but it's the first space you see as you enter our door.  Instead of welcoming guests, our entryway felt kind of blah.
The old shelf and mirror felt too rustic, which made me think about my home decor style.  I'm drawn to clean lines and neutral colors.  I love texture and want my home to feel inviting.

Over the summer I quickly refreshed the space.  The mirror is from Target and I ordered the shelf from Pottery Barn.  Although I loved this setup, the shelf was too deep and stuck out as we walked through the door.  

I found a better solution, as I searched for "narrow console tables" online and decided to make some changes.

However, choosing artwork that matched my budget proved to be more difficult.  I wanted a statement piece and recently came across Jenny's Print Shop.  Purchasing a print online and framing them myself was my cheapest option!

With just a few simple adjustments, our entryway feels more stylish.  I love the finished look!

I kept the accessories simple; a bowl to set our keys in, a scented candle, a small clock and fresh greenery.

The color palette sets the tone for the rest of the house.  Most of our living spaces are decorated with light neutrals and a touch of black and white.

I also replaced the door hardware.  The shiny new handles gave our door an instant makeover.

I'm still so excited to come home each day.  The changes better reflect my personal style.  I love Oprah’s quote, “Your home should rise up to meet you.”  Don't be afraid to change things up.  Most of us don't have a big budget to work with.  Small changes can make a big impact.


  1. This looks amazing! I would love to know the source for that narrow console table. It is so simple, but perfect for your space.


    1. Hi Carla! Thank you so much for commenting. I thought I linked it under "narrow console tables", but I missed it. I just updated the post. It's from CB2. They come in two sizes. I ordered the longer one. Here's the link...

  2. The aesthetics of this look is much more inviting and definitely reflects your style. Even though I did like the wall shelf I had wondered if you bump it. It's awesome how pieces can change the dynamics of any given space.. great new look

  3. Hi Brandi, The console and your finishing touches make for a classy and elegant entry. You always do such a good job with everything.
