You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover—but in many cases, we think it’s fair to judge a home by its foyer. Whether it’s a grand house or a tiny apartment with a nook by the door, your home’s entry is the first thing visitors see when they step inside your house and the sight that welcomes you home every day. So make it a good one! From high-drama to super-cozy, here are 50 of our favorite entryways from the pages of House Beautiful as well as our favorite new designers.

Romanek Design Studio

1 of 50

Hang a Pet’s Portrait

Commission an artist to capture a hyperrealistic portrait of your pet to hang in the entryway to greet you and your guests each time you walk through the front door. We’re loving this foyer by Romanek Design Studio. The juxtaposition between the dog’s serious expression and the laidback floor tiles, throw pillow, settee, and sconces create a fun air of irreverence.


2 of 50

Use a Daring Color

Lipstick pink might not be the most obvious choice for a foyer, but in this 19th-century Brooklyn townhouse, it’s a total showstopper. Designer Jonathan Berger, who used Benjamin Moore’s Razzle Daz, played up the historic glamour with a Louis XV chair and table and an 18th-century Italian mirror.


3 of 50

Add Animal Print

Designers love animal prints for stair runners—they’re great at camouflaging muddy footprints, spills, and other wear and tear from daily life. Garrow Kedigian used Stark’s classic Antilocarpa for the stairs of his Montreal townhouse in homage to the region’s fur-trading history.

Feature a Prominent Instrument

What better way to make a grand entrance than with a grand piano? In this entryway designed by Dallas-based decorator Jean Liu, the glossy black piano asserts a stately, formal air while the light wood flooring, modern glass elements, and worn leather pieces ensure a grounded welcome.

Tamsin Johnson Interiors

Pack It All In

If you’re working with a pint-sized entryway, you can still make it feel grand. Case in point? This foyer designed Tamsin Johnson. All it takes is a chic mirror, accent chair, umbrella holder, and a couple of hooks. With the right pieces, you can stretch just a few items into a sculptural statement.

Utilize Smart Storage

The coral skirted table isn’t just striking—it also hides the family’s clutter. “It has a lot of stuff stored under it on a shelf—baseball mitts and Wellington boots,” says designer Tom Scheerer, who worked with Quadrille to create the lattice wallcovering.

Werner Straube

Invest In Custom Builds

Designed by Corey Jenkins, this little nook is another great example of a small but impactful entryway. He maximized limited space with a built-in bench and slim side table for keys and other essentials. Then he covered the wall in an eye-catching blue wallpaper to break up all the white space. It’s the perfect complement to the chevron throw pillow and graphic artwork.


8 of 50

Embrace Old-School Styling

Architect James Carter and designer Jane Hawkins opted for a low-ceilinged entry with an up-and-down stair landing in this newly-built (but old-looking) country house. “When you enter, it feels like a tiny cottage. We wanted to delay the drama,” says Carter.


9 of 50

Let Light In With Glass Panels

The inky pigment and sharp angles of the light fixtures and graphic area rugs assert a modern edge to the foyer, which also gets just a splash of old-school decadence with an ornate console table. It’s eclectic without being jarring. Also, pro tip: If you’re redoing the entryway, consider flanking your front doors with glass panels to flood the entire space with natural light.

No one does blue and white quite like Mark D. Sikes. He piled on the patterns in this Beverly Hills foyer, mixing China Seas wallpaper and textiles with Fermoie chandelier shades and an Elizabeth Eakins striped rug.

Romanek Design Studio

Fill Negative Space

That awkward space under the stairs doesn’t have to be so, well, awkward. Romanek Design Studio spruced up the negative space with an elegant settee and set of small frames that work with the scale of the niche but speak to the other design concepts of the room, like the black and white stone tiles and elaborate chandelier. An architectural stool and modern accents bring the perfect balance.


12 of 50

Opt for Natural Textures

A sisal rug as wallcovering? Why not?, says Colleen Bashaw. “I didn’t want to cover up that great cement-tile floor, so that sparked the idea of putting sisal on the wall,” she explains. “[The contractor] mixed up a custom paste, applied it to the back of the rug, and hung it like wallpaper.”


13 of 50

Update Coastal Style

“We found this incredible carpet from 1stdibs and the blue-glass console from Avenue Road and just followed that thread,” says Philip Mitchell of the blue-and-white—but by no means nautical—palette.

14 of 50

Choose a Statement Rug

This entryway designed by Arent & Pyke shows both restraint and personality thanks to the architectural staircase, double frosted glass doors, and burnt orange rug, which leads the eye straight back. The rust and sage colors in the rug warm up the darker elements and tie everything together nicely.

Douglas Friedman

Go Grand

A sweeping staircase makes a major statement in the entry of a Fifth Avenue duplex. Garrow Kedigian, a Paris flea market regular, found these neoclassical-style antique gilt stools during one of his shopping trips.


16 of 50

Save Space Stylishly

Schuyler Samperton used a vintage console and West Elm basket to turn the vestibule of her pint-sized Miami Beach rental into a drop zone for keys and dog leashes. “That Chinese console is a vibrant blast of green in such a tiny zone, but the slim shape makes it work,” she says.

Arent & Pyke

Make Room for Storage

“‘Moments’ rather than looks best encapsulate a home’s positive impact, and the ultimate moment experienced in Magnolia House is the slow and elegant descent down its new sculptural staircase, the metaphorical spine of both the home and the project,” write designers Arent & Pyke. The jib door is continuous with the baby-blue painted paneling as to not interrupt visual flow while also providing extra storage.


18 of 50

Add Globe-Trotting Flair

South African designer Mally Skok mixed pieces from her travels in the foyer of her Massachusetts home.


19 of 50

Modernize Midcentury Elements

Architect Ray Booth of McAlpine used a louvered screen in the entry of a 1961 Houston house to replace an old ’60s room divider. The screen keeps the space separate from the dining room while still feeling airy.


20 of 50

Keep it Elegant

Black-and-white marble entryway floors never go out of style—see this Georgian-style Atlanta home designed by Melanie Turner for proof.

David A. Land

Upgrade Your Drop Zone

Who says a kid-friendly foyer can’t be ultra-luxe too? This circular settee upholstered in fuchsia velvet has become a New York family’s landing pad for backpacks and sweaters. “The kids come through this hallway and toss everything on that ottoman. It really functions,” says designer Fawn Galli.


22 of 50

Keep it Small But Mighty

Even a corner can become a proper entry with the right accessories, says Sarah Bartholomew. For a Georgetown house where the front door opens right onto the living room, she explains, “I wanted to create a moment by the front door where you could pause and hang your coat, but it had to feel cohesive with the room. That’s why there’s a bird print over the entry console instead of a mirror.”

Peter Murdock

Add a Tropical Punch

A classic banana-leaf motif by Hinson announces you’re in warm-weather territory as soon as you set foot in Lindsey Lane’s Palm Beach bungalow.

James Merrell

24 of 50

Go Wild with Floor-to-Ceiling Pattern

John Fondas’ trick for a low-ceilinged space: top-to-bottom pattern—and an oversized round mirror. “Unlike horizontal mirrors, round ones don’t lower the ceiling,” he explains.

Roland Bello

25 of 50

Cultivate a Jewelbox Allure

King of color Miles Redd went all-out in this Manhattan foyer, mixing bold tones and a black-and-white floor. “The wife is super-stylish, and she wanted it to feel like an opium den where Yves Saint Laurent had just left the room,” he says.

Eric Piasecki

Embrace Wood Tones

Gideon Mendelson updated a new home’s Neo-Elizabethan woodwork with a modern chandelier by Apparatus. Brass spindles on the staircase add another metallic touch.

Björn Wallander

27 of 50

Create a Gallery

Janie Molster used a collection of black-and-white art to add a contemporary touch to the muted pinks and grays of her Richmond entryway.


28 of 50

Go Green

Traditional woodwork in Juan Carretero’s Catskills house is anything but staid thanks to lush green paint (Sherwin Williams’ Country Squire) and black-and-white cement tile.

Thomas Loof

Update the Classics

In a Maine summer house, classic New England style gets a bold update with millwork in Farrow & Ball’s Red Earth. “We wanted to keep the feeling of an authentic old farmhouse while using rich and unexpected colors,” says designer Kari McCabe.

Show Off Shiplap

For an example of shiplap done right, see how architect Ruard Veltman used horizontal paneling to create a shaker-inspired entryway that’s rustic but not theme-y.

    Go Bold with Color

    For a 17th-century-French-style mansion in Houston, interior designer Miles Redd created a powerful entrance hall that blends contemporary art and traditional architecture and furnishings into a stylish mash-up. Taxicab-yellow paint serves as the brilliant backdrop for an Eric Peters painting, a plaster chandelier by Stephen Antonson, a button-tufted bench by John Rosselli & Assoc., and a blue-and-white ceramic jar mounted on a pedestal; the metal balustrade stands out like lace.

    Interior designer Bruce Shostak and his partner, Craig Fitt, decorated the entrance hall of their circa-1817 house in Claverack, New York, in a lively and period-perfect Federal style. The front door opens to walls painted a vibrant apple-green, mismatched striped runners by Woodard & Greenstein, and tiger-maple antiques that match the original banister.

    In the entrance hall of a Minneapolis mansion, designer Michael S. Smith employed a painting by Jacob Kassay, Qing-dynasty vessels, and a tabletop sculpture by Anish Kapoor; the custom-painted fretwork pattern over the dining room doorway is by Gracie.

    Interior designer Nancy Morton enclosed the loggia of her 1940 house in Boca Grande, Florida, to create an entrance hall that doubles as a casual living space, and she furnished it with welcoming seating areas. The easygoing array of comfortable furniture includes a button-tufted armchair from John Rosselli and O. Henry House scroll-back chairs clad in a Lee Jofa ikat stripe. Artisan Bob Christian painted the trompe l’oeil pediments topped with shells; Staffordshire plates and platters climb the walls; and the floor is covered with travertine tiles by Country Floors.

    Create an Art Gallery

    At Obercreek, the Hudson River Valley farm of investor Alex Reese and his wife, architect Alison Spear, the stone-floored entrance hall is lined with family portraits, hung frame to frame on the pale gray walls. Heirloom Windsor chairs flank the front door, and the 19th-century settees are upholstered in a flame stitch by Scalamandré.

    In a stylish Hamptons home devised by Deborah Berke and decorated by Thomas O’Brien, the latter’s pendant lights from Aero join an Alexandre Noll sculpture (far end) and a Donald Baechler painting (right) in the entrance hall; an Alexander Calder lithograph is mounted at the bottom of the staircase.

    In photographer Steven Klein’s entrance hall in Bridgehampton, New York, a Klein image of Brad Pitt pops against the space’s black, white, and brown palette. Horizontal boards amplify the room’s length, the peaked ceiling lends height and drama, and a series of square shapes—the windows, the front door’s panes of glass, and the paneled interior door—provide a stately rhythm.

    A custom-made table anchors a New York City apartment entrance hall that decorator Vicente Wolf conceived as a mini-gallery, with works by Richard Prince, Brice Marden, Eric Fischl, and Thomas Houseago. The large space would also be perfect for a cocktail party, since the long table could serve as a bar, if necessary. The table’s wood tones make it appear to rise out of the floor, and its cabriole legs echo those of the 18th-century Italian stools from VW Home.

    Circa-1930 FontanaArte lanterns from Bernd Goeckler Antiques join a framed work by Robert Longo and a floor sculpture by Richard Serra in the entrance hall of a New York apartment renovated by designer Nicholas Kilner.

    A deep-red Anish Kapoor sculpture greets visitors in the entrance hall of a Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, house designed by Charles Zana for a couple with a blue-chip contemporary-art collection. The text painting is by Richard Prince, and the console is by Eric Schmitt; a dramatic glass-bead sculpture by Jean-Michel Othoniel dangles from 30 feet above.

  • The travertine-tiled entrance gallery of Donny Deutsch’s Manhattan townhouse is anchored by bespoke Ingrao Inc. sofas, both upholstered in a Perennials bouclé.

    Jean-Louis Deniot, a Paris decorator, gave an American couple’s Left Bank entrance hall aristocratic elegance through the addition of a bold cornice, sweeping fringed curtains made of a Romo velvet, and an inlaid-stone floor; beneath the antique engravings stands a 1940s Louis XVI-style chair upholstered in gold-embossed leather.

  • A lamp by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. and a glass sculpture by John Hogan for The Future Perfect top a vintage Maison Raphael console in the entry of Ricky Martin’s Beverly Hills home. The painting is by Corydon Cowansage.

    Add a Sculptural Light Fixture

    A sunburst of marble and onyx paves the entrance of a Bel Air, California, mansion renovated by Tichenor & Thorp Architects and interior designer Kelly Wearstler. Beneath the spiky Jean de Merry ceiling fixture, a Pedro Friedeberg table rises like a golden fountain, while the floor’s tones are carried throughout the space, linking the golden sconces, gleaming black doors, looming 19th-century bronze statue, and cabinet of lacquer and metal.

    In a Boston townhouse designed by Wells & Fox, the entrance hall features a chandelier by Jean de Merry, which hangs above a Samuel Kasten Tisserand rug.

    Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet’s London entrance hall was decorated by Michael S. Smith and is centered on two strong octagonal elements: a metal ceiling fixture and a vintage Karl Springer table from Liz O’Brien that stands on a Kravet carpet. The house’s original 1880s fireplace makes for a warm welcome, while the contemporary works of art propped on its mantel add a casual air.

  • At designer Ralph Lauren’s residence in Bedford, New York, a 19th-century Dutch chandelier presides over the entrance hall.

    In the baronial entry hall of Tommy Hilfiger’s Connecticut estate, an antique iron chandelier hangs over an 1840s Gothic Revival library table and Martyn Lawrence Bullard–designed stools, which are dressed in a Robert Kime print with a Samuel & Sons fringe trim.

    At a Southampton home renovated by interior designer David Netto and architect David Hottenroth, a rush basket from Mecox sits beside the door in the entry hall, which is crowned by a Charles Edwards pendant light. A Poul Kjærholm daybed stretches out in front of the fireplace, and the midcentury French shell sconces are from JF Chen.

    At Victoria and Vassily V. Sidorov’s country house near Moscow, designer Gabhan O’Keeffe painted the entrance hall to resemble padded white leather. The ceiling fixture is by Charles Edwards, the black-walnut table’s wasp-waist silhouette keeps sight lines open, and the stone floor features a radiant inlaid pattern of limestone and silver mosaic tiles.

    Red-leather-clad 19th-century chairs splash interior designer Tino Zervudachi’s black-and-white Paris entrance hall, which is often used for dinner parties. The 18th-century bronze fawns (based on a pair found at Herculaneum’s Villa of the Papyri) seem to have wandered out of the giant leafy Anselm Kiefer work, and the Turkish-stone floor sports a dark band that blends with the baseboard and gives the white section a carpetlike appearance.

    Marble columns distinguish the entry hall of a historic New Jersey estate renovated by architect Annabelle Selldorf and designer Matthew Frederick.

    The entrance hall of a Swiss residence renovated by Studio Peregalli seems stark at first glance, but textures and architecture warm up the sunlit space. The vaulted ceiling shelters unfinished-wood doors with expressive knots and a diamond-pattern stone floor with a roughened surface. Seventeenth-century Italian hall chairs and a table of the same era further loosen the space with gentle curves and sculptural silhouettes that recall paper cutouts. A gilded frame in the stairwell offers a rich gleam.

  • Choose Furniture with Storage

    The New York apartment of actor Will Ferrell and his wife, auctioneer Viveca Paulin-Ferrell, was renovated by architect Richard Perry and decorated by Shawn Henderson Interior Design. Scandinavian ceramics from the End of History rest on a vintage Dunbar cabinet from Wyeth in the entrance hall; the FontanaArte mirror dates from 1960.

  • At a Nantucket retreat designed by Markham Roberts, symmetry rules in the entrance hall, where a pair of Delft-vase lamps and objets d’art sit on an antique table from John Rosselli antiques.

These Foyer Décor Ideas Had Us at Hello

Calimia Home

Your foyer is the first and last thing you see when walking through your front door, so it should leave you feeling inspired, organized, and on top of your game. After all, there’s nothing worse than coming home after a long day to a messy space with unopened mail, piles of shoes, or other miscellaneous items waiting to be stored away. While your life may be running at a million miles per hour, your foyer décor should create a space to pause, reflect, and get re-organized.

Whether you’re about to tackle a busy day or unwind at night, make this traditionally small space feel invigorating. With clever organization, pieces that serve a purpose, and impactful accents, you’ll be on your way to the ultimate entryway.

Read on to get inspired by foyer decoration ideas to turn your front door into a portal to your favorite space.

Studio McGee

Think function first: Of course you want your foyer to be bold and beautiful, but you also want it to serve its purpose. Start with an entryway bench to sit on, take off your shoes, and get comfortable at home. Couple it with a set of hooks for anything from hats to handbags, and even hang a special set for keys. If your foyer’s architecture is particularly unique, avoid blocking those statement aspects with furniture.

of 20

Amy Bartlam

The key to a truly beautiful entryway is layering. For instance, a console table will always look more put together with a pair of baskets or stools underneath it and a mirror or artwork hanging gracefully above. The goal isn’t to over-accessorize, but rather to add items that are both purposeful and beautiful—like this balanced space that plays on both symmetry and a neutral color scheme.

Anne Sage

Take advantage of wide foyer walls by sprucing up neutral tones with artwork. Since it’s the first thing guests will see when they walk into your home, let it be both personal and purposeful. This long entry table serves as storage for necessities and décor, while a rustic accent chair commands interest from the first glance.

of 20

Ashley Montgomery

A great way to add visual interest and change up your design is to mix and match different styles of décor in the same space. Style a sleek, modern table in your foyer with antique accents, then think about your color palette to start accessorizing. In this space, minimal black pieces stand out against all-white walls and polished items, while texture plays a part in the artwork and woven bowl for keys.

Cathie Hong Interiors

One of the most necessary components of any functional entryway is storage. If you’re not one for standard wall hooks, try switching it up by hanging cylindrical pegs of varying sizes. By keeping the materials standard throughout, you’ll make for a cohesive look that blends together with dynamic shapes. Pair them with a simple bench seat for taking off shoes at the end of the day and a natural mirror to bring warmth to bright spaces while reflecting light.

Amy Bartlam

Themed décor is usually reserved for large, open areas with plenty of room for maximal style, but this entryway packs big personality into a small space. With a Southwestern-inspired rug and throw pillows, it transports guests into the landscape from the first step inside. Natural wood grains and patterned upholstery make a simple bench into a statement piece, while large windows allow plenty of natural light to filter into the room.

Michelle Berwick

This foyer isn’t focused on subtlety with its beautifully tiled floors, but it contrasts neutral walls with a soft color palette. Create a statement by adding a bold pop of color or a striking geometrical pattern, or use the power of repetition to create your statement. In this space, the mint green tones are repeated throughout the hallway, coating the floors, doors, and decorative pieces. Offset by warm pink hues in stacked photographs climbing up the built-in shelving, this sleek space feels anything but bare.

Brophy Interiors

A foyer doesn’t have to be filled with decorations or furniture to create interesting visuals. This space plays on the element of shape by pairing a bold rectangular bench with an oversized round mirror. A long orange throw pillow brings a pop of color into the minimalist design, while woven seating on the bench adds texture and warmth alike. To exaggerate shapes in your space, be sure to choose mirrors or pictures with frames that contrast your wall color.

Charlie Coull Design

For an effect that brings the technique of color blocking to the floor, tile the main section of your foyer to separate it from the rest of your home. This modern design uses floor-to-ceiling cabinetry to create plenty of storage while accenting the white doors with warm wood tones. The patterned tile floor brings plenty of personality to the room to complement its strong lines and the matte colors of the architecture.

Calimia Home

Especially in small rooms, mirrors can make a big difference—both in the style and the feel of the room. A large round mirror extends the space of this foyer while bringing warmth to white walls, balancing a long console table with textured décor. The bold green paint on the front door is a lively aspect that adds vibrance to the design, while natural elements keep things neutral to let statement colors stand out.

of 20

Calimia Home

Your home is all about your personality, so why not use the foyer as an opportunity to express it with a gallery wall? Choose your favorite artwork, family photos, or memorable moments to display right by the door. For a clean, bright finish, use frames that match your wall color to effortlessly blend texture into the space without overwhelming an airy design.

Calimia Home

For open areas with minimalist design, choose a large area rug to complete the room. Round rugs in square rooms exaggerate the corners while bringing attention to the center of the space. This fresh, clean foyer with white walls, trim, and décor is exceptionally inviting, with woven accents placed throughout the room. A style this soothing makes coming home not only relaxing but an experience in itself.

of 20

Casa Watkins Living

If your foyer consists of a long hallway, use the architecture to your advantage by styling a long runner rug along the floor. Runners draw the eye to the end of the hall, and this space points to a maximalist dining area that’s begging for a glance. Soft blue paint on the walls contrasts with the warmer colors in the rug, while natural railings on the staircase add a playful but inviting effect.

of 20

Michelle Berwick

If there’s one item that can instantly transform the look of your foyer, it’s an antique rug. Worn traditional rugs have a certain texture and dimension that’s hard to duplicate in small spaces—particularly in foyers with white walls and simple architecture. Style the rug with lush greenery for the complete look, and choose natural finishes for other elements in the space like these wooden closet doors (with an abundance of storage behind them).

of 20

Brophy Interiors

Don’t just resort to a standard flush-mount light fixture; pick a pendant that makes a statement to cast a flattering light on your space (and don’t forget the dimmers). Choose one large light for wide-open spaces, or triple up in slim areas by leading pendants down the hall. These layered glass globes hang gracefully above a softly patterned wallpaper while drawing attention to the custom wooden ceilings above.

of 20

Calimia Home

To embrace the minimalist style, paint your entire entryway in bright white tones. Switch the color up a few shades to paint your trim for an impact with texture, and complement white walls with classic marble floors. A simple vase with white flowers sits atop a bold black entry table in this space to add hints of color while complementing the shape of the stairs.

of 20

Anne Sage

This foyer table has plenty of room for necessities (like extra shoes, umbrellas, keys, and hats) while keeping the overall look sleek and clean. A tall abstract painting adds balance to the room, staged alongside a white textured lamp that blends into the walls. Small decorative items with lush leaves bring color to the space, while the wood grain of the table feels natural and inviting.

of 20

Brophy Interiors

Benches and stools are usually the preferred foyer seating, but an accent chair might be what you’re missing. If you have awkward corners or bold shapes in your home’s architecture, opt for chairs that play on the room’s shapes, like these rounded chairs staged in front of strong, straight lines. Double up with bright colors for an interesting effect, or keep it simple with neutral tones that blend with the rest of the room.

of 20

Amy Bartlam

Thrifters and professional designers alike know the value of a good design find, and this entry table is a perfect example. Topped with unique décor for a flair of personality, this table is the star of the show. Pair your favorite items with neutral colors and minimal furniture to make them the center of focus in your space.

of 20

Charbonneau Interiors

If you have a collection of special items, put them on display for guests to admire at the front of your home. This antique cabinet is the perfect setting for an arrangement of bowls, mugs, vases, and plates.

29 Entryway Ideas That Make a Stunning First Impression

Ryan Garvin ; DESIGN: Becki Owens

If you only need one reason to invest in decorating an entryway, let it be this: Everybody needs a good spot to make an entrance. Even for those who prefer to come and go with less to-do, an entryway space serves a functional purpose. For one, an entryway is somewhere to take off your shoes, set your keys, and hang up your coat. It also imparts the first impression of your home, thereby setting the tone for the rest of your space. Think of your entry as your very own three-dimensional welcome mat: It’s well-traversed, but most people don’t spend much time there.

So how do you approach decorating an entryway that’s capable of accommodating brief, yet heavy traffic? A good place to start is incorporating high-impact decorative accents that set a stylish tone and well-appointed vignettes that say hello from the inside. Whether your entry is a formal foyer, a modified mudroom, or an apartment layout that immediately opens up into the kitchen and living room, it’s all about putting together furniture, décor, rugs, and lighting that create a wow factor as soon as you (or guests) walk in the front door.

Okay, so maybe the actual first impression for your home is the front door, but a few knocks later, the view through the open door is just as important. One simple, stylish swap we’d recommend is right at your feet. Upgrade your (indoor) welcome mat with an antique rug that sets a classic, worldly tone.

When selecting a rug for your entryway, a few more tips to keep in mind include choosing a rug made with durable material, such as wool. Natural rugs, as opposed to synthetic, cotton, or silk rugs, can handle the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic. Also, consider mixing up the shape of your rug. While a rectangular shape is popular, a square or oblong shaped rug, and even a runner might be a better fit for your space.

Oversize art always sets a chic tone. “It’s all about creating interesting vignettes while playing with scale,” designer Wendy Blackband says of this elevated entryway. Investing in the perfect statement piece pulls together a dramatic entryway that leaves a lasting impression. 

To choose a statement piece for your entryway, consider that this will be one of the first things people will see when they enter your home, so select something that best expresses your personality. After all, your home is an extension of you!

In an entryway, it’s important to lead guests in with a mix of interesting décor and design elements that extend from floor to ceiling.  Designer Amanda Barnes outfitted this enviable vignette in an eclectic style that balances glam touches like polished brass and fresh pink peonies with more organic elements like leather stools and a decorative horn. The cowhide rug serves a practical purpose as well: “Anchor the smaller space with a rug that can handle the traffic and maintain its original charm for years to come,” Barnes suggests.

For a fashionable quick fix in a small space, consider swapping out the lighting in an entryway, as designer Brady Tolbert did in his own home. A chic chandelier or pendant light can be truly transformative without the risk of clutter. With plenty of options to work with, you can find something that fits your preferences and style without much hassle.

Sometimes, the key to nailing a formal introduction is to be disarmingly charming. Entryways are no different; in a more formal foyer, for example, try adding personality with unexpected art, as designer Nancy Mayerfield did in this space. Alternatively, unexpected art can also extend to the type of lighting, coat stands/hooks, and console you choose to display in this space.

A simple way to make guests feel at home is to have a seat positioned prominently in your entryway. Benches and chairs alike provide a practical opportunity to sit down while putting on or taking off shoes (or to simply take a load off for a few moments.) Entry seating can also be easily accessorized with throw pillows and plants that showcase your personal style as a preview of the rest of the home.

An entryway is a perfect opportunity to show off high ceilings and other architectural details that create a grand entrance. Lighting is a fantastic way to do this, and nothing catches your attention quite like decorative, elaborate fixtures. Don’t be afraid to embrace a combination of geometric shapes, lines, and curves to lead the eye around the room in a major wow moment.

A console table is a classic choice for adorning an entryway with a few chic pieces and offers enough surface area to set keys or mail (or a hostess gift, should we be so lucky!), but where does one start when styling a console vignette?

“Always remember the rule of threes, especially for an entryway moment,” instructs designer Jenn Feldman. She cites a few examples of how to mix heights and textures on an entry table: “An interesting lamp, catch-all tray, and a floral arrangement; a sculptural object on a stack of books next to a photo frame.”

If you’re planning to do your share of hosting and entertaining, a warm and inviting (as well as focused) neutral palette is a great way to welcome guests. Natural wood tones and neutral rugs are the perfect combination for greeting, entertaining, and bidding an end-of-the-evening farewell to best friends.

For a cohesive look and a first glimpse of your home’s style, chose a unifying look to center your dećor choices around. If you want to go eclectic, you can add plenty of bold colors and slightly mismatched items. If you prefer something more boho, you’ll gravitate towards natural textures and botanical aspects. Your preferences can set the tone for the space and make it easier to decide what to include and what to leave out.

Storage is certainly something to keep in mind when decorating your entryway. Given that important items like shoes, umbrellas, and even keys are often left in that area, ensure you have dedicated spaces to put them. A woven basket positioned near the entryway to hold various items or a set of decorative hooks hanging on the wall are perfect examples.

Have enough floor space? A small or slim console table can serve as a practical storage area without taking too much room. Plus, you can style a vignette with personal items or a table lamp.

There is no problem with sticking to a wood or white door, but sometimes it can be fun to try something different. Draw attention to a small space and paint the door to your home an unforgettable color. We’re a big fan of a gorgeous blue to emit feelings of calm and serenity.

A common secret that designers share is to reflect more light and give the appearance of a larger space is by using mirrors. In addition to allowing you to check how you look right before you walk out the door, it truly adds a level of elegance. Whether you want to go with a floor-length or an arrangement of multiple small ones, mirrors can really pull together a space.

While rugs are always a godsend in changing things up, it isn’t the only way you can make your floor stand out. With the entryway usually being a smaller space, have some fun with it by placing decorative tiles. With stunning visual patterns and gorgeous colors to choose from, it will make quite the impression.

Nothing says eye-catching like a gorgeous mural—but murals aren’t solely meant for accent walls in a bedroom or living room. Add a gorgeous design to the entry hallway and create an artistic space you love coming home to. Not much of a painter? Don’t worry; there are plenty of wallpaper options that can provide you the same effect.

If one of the first things you see when walking into your home is the staircase, try dressing it up a bit. Draping fabric over the stairs (securely held in place to prevent slipping, of course) can add a splash of color and design in an unexpected place. Another option you can try is adding decorative tile to the front of each stair.

One of the easiest ways to brighten up any room is by adding plants, and near your front door is no exception. With plenty of varieties and styles to choose from, it allows you to bring the outdoors in. Whether you want to stick to a small collection in different pots and arrangements or choose one large plant to steal the show, plant presence will add a decorative yet natural touch.

Adding a welcome mat is an inviting way to make guests feel at home, but why not go bigger if you have the space? Adding a large area rug with a striking design can do wonders to change the atmosphere in your home. We love this gorgeous one featuring black snakes in this entry designed by Studio KT—it adds the perfect level of intrigue and elegance.

Adding a table to your entry is a great place to display dećor or keep important items on hand, but tables aren’t your only option here. Using a decorative desk or a vintage dresser is a great way to mix things up and create a gorgeous arrangement. Plus, extra drawers for storage are always a good call.

Trust us; you don’t have to go overboard with different colors to create a welcoming, delightful atmosphere. Especially when working with a neutral space, a small dose of color can go a long way. From one lone colorful piece of artwork to a bright red mirror, you can undoubtedly make an impact with just a little pop of your favorite hue.

Want to get creative with your walls but not wanting to paint? We totally get it. However, there are other methods you can try to help bring your wall to life. Adding texture is an often overlooked yet worthwhile option to consider. With some effort, adding paneling or wainscotting with wooden strips to create a gorgeous design can transform your wall from bare to chic!

You should always feel free to make your space personal, so why not display a curated collection? Whether you decide to implement a gallery wall, or even create a space designed to display your favorite wine, you can allow your interests to shine through in a big way.

There is no easier way to add pizzaz to your entry than trying out delightful patterns in your decorative choices. Wallpaper is often the most common (and easiest) way to go about this, and for a good reason—your wall can set the backdrop for the rest of your theme. Even when choosing a neutral color scheme, pattern and texture are surefire ways to create a lasting impression.

Adding seating and a place to relax is optimal, but adding a nook takes things up a notch. Whether you have the space under your stairs to add a cozy cushion that shields itself from the outside world or add a small couch/bench with a table to hold books, you can’t go wrong creating a dedicated nook space.

Erin Williamson Design

Never underestimate the power of layering your dećor to create something fresh and new. You don’t even have to go out and buy new items; take a look at what you already have and test different combinations together! We love how this oversized piece of art forms a background behind the desk and the gorgeous silver mirror perched on top—all the pieces work cohesively together to create something classic and bold.

of 29

Erin Williamson Design

Rather than taking a paint roller to your walls, turn your eyes up! Painting your ceiling, especially in a bold color or striking pattern, keeps everyone’s eyes focused up—which is a major bonus for small entryways. Especially if your ceiling is sectioned away from other rooms, you can feel free to get playful with the possibilities.

of 29

Jessica Nelson Design

Making use of what you have is always a good move, and your layout will have quite a bit of say regarding how you can decorate. If you don’t have much space to add tables, or even if you want to take a different approach, try using your stairs as a place to display a select few items of dećor. You don’t want to go too large with your options or add too many and block the path up the stairway, but a simple plant or a couple of books propped against the wall can add the perfect touch.

of 29

Katherine Carter

If you’re a “less is more” type of person, we can’t truly blame you. Sometimes all a space needs is a select few necessary items to make an impact. Adding a simple bench, a large plant, or a single piece of decorative lighting can allow those items to stand out without competing with other decorative aspects.

PSA: These 22 IKEA Entryway Ideas Are Interior Designer-Approved


Decorating a foyer is so important because it gives anyone who walks through our front door a first glimpse of a warm and welcoming home We all want our foyers to be a happy and beautiful place to step into. Here are easy things you can do to create a great first home impression in your foyer.

I think foyers are the hardest room in the house to decorate!!!

A foyer has a big job! It’s the welcoming committee of your home and sets the mood for the rest of our home.

It needs to be functional and pretty too. Let’s look at simple and pretty and functional ways you can make your foyer the best place to welcome friends and family!

My foyer has gone through a big change recently! It used to have a very different vibe!

I’m finally striking a new tone with my home. We have lived at our Tanglewood House for two years now and I’m adding more Transitional furnishings with a Traditional feel.

And, in the foyer, I’m adding a bit of color!


We all have a foyer. Some are at the threshold of the room we walk right into from outside and some are more of a room than an entryway. No matter how small or how palatial most of us fall into one of two camps when it comes to foyers.

The first camp is the functional camp. Our foyers are just a landing spot for someone coming into our homes. We might have a doormat to wipe feet and a place to hang a coat. It’s a foyer all about the business of function.

The other camp is more fabulous. Having a pretty introduction to our home is most important. If you are in this camp having an attractive space to define your look is most important.

Which camp are you a member of?

Well, the sweet spot for decorating a foyer is to have one foot firmly planted in each camp. Let’s think about function and fabulous when it comes to decorating your foyer!


I think a foyer really begins at the outside of your front door. Your front door ties the outside and inside of your home together. So why don’t you make your front door welcoming!

Our home right now is decorated for fall and so are our outdoor spaces. So anyone coming to our front door will get a big autumnal hello!

Make sure your front door is clean and painted to reflect your style and hang a big seasonal wreath on it!

Doing these easy things will set the stage for what visitors and family will see when they enter your home.

You can see how to make the wreath on my front door HERE. It’s super easy!


No matter the size, a foyer needs to be a specific space designated to greet people who come into your home.

Unlike the back door or garage entrance or other entry points in your home, a foyer is a “formal” spot to welcome people who come in your front door.

Our foyer is very long and a bit wide too. Quite an unusual shape.

I’ve seen a huge sweep in decor styles lately. And pretty is back in a big and more modern way! I just love it. So our foyer is beginning to reflect that style change.

I love trends but don’t follow most of them. But I am totally embracing the change to a more attractive, transitional look!

The new look of the foyer really plays up the accent color I love right now! And is a preview of what will be found in the rest of our home.

This brings me to my next point…


Your foyer should be a little preview of what the rest of your home looks like. It should be part of a cohesive look for your whole house.

The change in our foyer started with the white console table. Just adding that one piece started the change in the foyer. And it created a look that worked with the rest of our home.

From there I added a new lamp and rug.

There are more changes to come but like anything change is often slow!

Make your foyer cohesive with the rest of your home.


Every foyer should have these things…

  • an indoor mat or rug right inside your door to wipe your feet
  • some type of lighting
  • a place to sit
  • a place to hang a coat or drop a handbag
  • a place to hold keys or sunglasses like a table or buffet or bookcase
  • a mirror
  • art
  • something personal
  • flowers

Notice this list is both functional and fabulous. There’s a little of both.

Yes, wouldn’t that be great! But many of us, if not most of us, do not have a foyer that large to addommodate all or most of the things on the list.

So here’s my best advice…

If you have room for these things to comfortably fit in a foyer go for it. If you don’t, pick what is most important for the comfort of your guests and the cohesiveness of your home. And then add some things that make your foyer extra pretty if you have room.

Do not crowd so much in a foyer or entryway that you and the people who come through your front door are uncomfortable.


Let’s start with the rug because it fills this space with color!

Our foyer is too wide for a runner so I added a 5×8 very traditional rug to our foyer with big color! This introduces the accent color I’ve added to our home.

I do not have a mat at the door because this rug can handle any dirt or mess. It’s easy to clean up.

If you are adding a rug to your foyer make sure it is easy to clean because our foyers get a lot of foot traffic!

Above the console I opted for beautiful scripture verse that blesses all who visit our home.

And to the left of the verse is a vertical coat rack. Although we have a coat closet further down the hall this is such a nice thing to have. When I know we are having company I it empty so our company can hang things on it.

When we are not expecting company I decorate it with seasonal items. Right now I have a market basket filled with green stems with rust berries.

I also added a chair from the basement because I like the idea of having a place to sit in the foyer but I’m not sure it will stay. I’ll live with it for awhile but I bet it will go back to the basement.


Like I said earlier, find the sweet spot for decorating a foyer is a mix of functional things you need in your foyer and things that make the foyer pretty and welcoming.

Just remember function always trumps fabulous. But often function can be pretty!

The new lamp adds soft ambiance to the foyer as does the candles on the other side of the console. They are both pretty and functional!


I think the foyer should be the cleanest area of a home. It makes the first impression and when your front door and the windows around the front door and the foyer is so so clean and tidy what a great welcoming impression it makes!

Just in case you get a call from, let’s say, your dear Aunt Audrey and she is stopping by and your home is a mess I have a really practical post about how to fake clean your home in 20 minutes. You can probably fake clean your foyer in about 5!

In this post you can see our StoneGable foyer and how I decorated it with functional and fabulous things too.



The longer I decorate I see the great beauty in simple decorating and design.

Keep small collections and easily tripped over area rugs out of the foyer. Choose pieces that fit the space and accents that don’t get lost in the rest in the decor.

One of my favorite decorating mantras is worth keeping in mind when decorating a foyer…


You can see a post about LESS IS BEST DECORATING here.


One of the things I love to do is to change out my foyer decor seasonally. I like to put something in the foyer that reflects the season at hand! In the fall I might add a basket of white pumpkins to the console. At Christmas, I might hang a wreath and some Christmas ornaments on the vertical coat rack. You get the idea.

I think this gives us a chance to really look at our foyer. I often talk about being decor blind in decorating posts. Sometimes we really don’t see how the decor in our homes looks because we see the same decor day after day! And after a while, we get so used to it and we actually don’t focus in on the details!

Don’t become decor blind. Change up the decor in your foyer to keep it fresh!

I hope you find this post helpful for decorating your foyer to be both functional and fabulous!

Easy ideas that are savvy and practical winter foyer decorating ideas. We want these important areas in our home to be functional and attractive. Here's how...

Winter foyer decorating means equipping our foyers and indoor landing spaces to meet the needs of our family and visitors who step inside our front door during this colder and darker season. It also means having a space that is pretty and warm and welcoming! Let’s talk about decorating our foyers for winter.

This post contains affiliate links. That means when you click on some of the links in this post and you make a purchase I earn a small commission at no cost to you. All my opinions are my own. You can view my full disclosure here.


Your foyer is like a big welcome mat for your home! And the first impression of the inside our homes! It is the first place we usher people into our homes and greet them!

Today let’s chat about creating a space that meets the needs of winter and gives a little decorative nod to the season too!

Do you decorate with the current season in mind? I do. And adding just a little hint of each season to our foyers is such a pretty addition to this important space.


For a room to meet its potential it must be both functional and attractive, or as I like to say, fabulous.

The foyer is one of those spaces in our homes that serves a very important purpose for anyone walking through our front doors. We don’t need to be experts in interior design to have both a functional and fabulous foyer. We just need a little common sense know-how and some easy decorating tips! And I’m here to help with that!

Before we chat about making our foyers pretty let’s chat about functionality!

Here are just a few functions of a foyer to keep in mind…

  • to usher in and welcome guests and family
  • a foyer serves as a depository of coats, purses, shoes, boots, etc
  • a first impresion
  • to give a little acknowledgement of the season at hand
  • and a place, at the end of a visit, our guests and family can collect their items and say goodbye


In the winter, it’s smart to think about our walkways and front porches as an extension of our foyer!

Clean off, shovel off or brush off any snow and salt from walkways and porch. Visitors should easily and safely be able to get from our driveways into our foyer!

If winter is cold and or snowy you might need to think a bit more about your foyer as a place to take off snowy or wet shoes, peel off hats, coats mittens.

There can be a lot of “stuff” that comes with guests in the winter. Think about where you will stash away your guests’ things before they arrive. “Stuff” can make a mess! So make a plan to get all that “stuff” out of the foyer and put it away.


If you live in an area that has inclement weather, you need to think about adding an area rug or runner to your foyer.

Snowy or wet boots or shoes bring in lots of water and water can cause slips and even falls. It is also hard on our floors

A rug can add warmth and personality and give a big nod to the color palette of our home but in the winter a rug can also absorb the wet and moisture that comes in with people and pets!

So make sure the rug you choose for your foyer is not too precious or expensive. A rug should be able to stand up to water and dirt!

We chose a very sturdy and inexpensive faux oriental rug for our foyer. I wanted something fun with a big dose of color that would be a little clue to the greens we have been using as an accent color in the rest of our home.

It also cleans up beautifully!

We have 5 little grandbabies and lots of dogs! So we needed an area rug that stains would not set in! So far all the messes on the rug have cleaned up wonderfully!

This rug was so inexpensive that after a few years of heavy use, we will be happy to replace it! Even if I just get one calendar year out of it I will be so pleased!

You can see our foyer rug HERE.


A winter foyer gets called to a bit of heavy lifting as it is usually the place winter coats and scarves and mittens and snowsuits and gloves and hats and boots are taken off.

So thinking about where to put winter outerwear is a big part of the winter foyer decorating! The idea is to neatly stow it away!

When our grandchildren come and it snows our foyer can quickly become overwhelmed with snowy clothing and boots and rosy-cheeked kids with staticky hair!

Thankfully we have a laundry room just off the foyer that has a big dryer and a place for coats. There is a door that sits in back of the white chair in this picture that leads to the laundry room.

If you have a closet in or near your foyer, count yourself lucky! We have what I call a “half closet” that is just big enough for guest coats and a basket for shoes. And in the image above you can get a glimpse of our hall coat closet at the far right of the image.

If you don’t have a hall closet one great solution for coats and more is a coat rack. They are so versatile and I think they look fabulous in a foyer!

Turn on your JavaScript to view content

If your foyer is really a part of your living room, carve a little bit of wall space out for a vertical coat rack that hangs on the wall. When guests are not using it they are great for hanging grab-and-go baskets (like mine) or other decor.

We’ve had this vertical coat rack that hangs on our foyer wall in both our StoneGable and Tanglewood homes. It is so functional and can be very decorative too!


If you have space in your foyer, entry hall, entryway or small designated spot add a chair, settee, or bench.

The addition of a place to sit will be much appreciated by guests and family, especially if they need to put shoes and boots on.

During Christmas, I took the chair out of our foyer but quickly put it back when I realized how many times I was on the floor shoving little kids’ feet into boots! A chair makes this job so much easier!

You really don’t need much more than a chair like the petite slipcovered chair in our foyer. I added a Mongolian pillow to the chair to give it a wintery look.

Even if your foyer is very small think about adding a garden stool to your foyer to use as a seat.


Here are a few other items you will be happy to have in your foyer…

  • umbrella stand
  • boot tray
  • storage baskets
  • bins
  • hooks

Things like umbrella stands and boot trays don’t have to live in your foyer all winter but have them on hand when you know they will be called into action.

I’ve been looking for an age for the perfect umbrella stand for our foyer. I have a penchant for vintage canes and I’m thinking about adding them with the umbrella stand right inside the door under the round mirror.


A grand entryway or a small foyer or a landing pad in your living room, no matter the size, should have a flat surface for functional and pretty things.

This will usually be the focal point of your foyer! Even a foyer needs a pretty focal point!

Think of a table or flat surface as the most important piece of furniture in your entryway decor!

Our foyer is not very wide but very long. A long console table works perfectly here. It’s functional because we have a lamp on it and a big grouping of candles in the winter that also give quite a bit of light and a good dose of ambiance too!

A flat surface is the place to add a bit of style, your personality, and a little nod to the season.

This year there is very little in the foyer that screams “winter”! However, I used lots of white and again the group of candles give a warm glow.


Your foyer should have good lighting! There is a lot of activity that can take place in the foyer, and many times we are welcoming guests for dinner or in the evening, and winter evenings begin early!

We have a chandelier on a dimmer that is perfect for flooding this area with light. It hangs on the ceiling from a vaulted ceiling high above our foyer!

Truth be told I am not a fan of overhead lighting so I put a lamp on the console table and it adds a pleasant diffused circle of light at the door. So much softer and prettier! And our white walls reflect light so well that use just this lamp most evenings.

A grouping of candles, both real and faux, gathered together in a tray adds a romantic and cozy light as well that is reflecting their candleglow around the foyer. I don’t light all the candles in my cheetah tray but only the battery-operated ones. They don’t have to be tended and the other candles look good without being lit!


A mirror is not only a fabulous bit of decor to add to a winter foyer, but it is so functional too.

A mirror is a must-have!

I am waiting patiently for a beautiful round ball mirror to replace the Numbers 33 sign above our console table. I’ve gotten four delay notices since August. Although it is a bit frustrating I am a patient woman and just keep thinking about how nice the new mirror will look once it comes to its new home.

To the left of the sign, I added a beautiful convex mirror near the sidelights on our door. Wow, it brings in so much natural light and because it is convex gives a panoramic view of our study french doors and what lies beyond.

I’ve had this mirror for decades. It’s just the perfect size to stick here and there! And it has been here and there in many rooms of our home.

The moral of this little story is to add a mirror to your foyer, no matter the size.


A little bit of something organic like a faux plant, an orchid or something green looks so attractive and welcoming in a winter foyer. Most of us long for a little bit of organic life!

Most often when I’m pursuing sites like Pinterest I see lots of evergreens in winter foyers. And that is certainly an option.

For me, evergreens are not a great option. I think they can make a foyer look too Christmassy. And as the winter moves along I want to also move away from evergreens and gently move towards spring.

I used a little bit of faux “fluff” in a white container by the lamp.

And on the other side of the console, I put some just budding branches in a rough stamped white pottery vase.

That little bit of green against all the white makes a big difference! The green organics add life!

Here are other organics you can use in your foyer…

  • pinecones
  • a bow of paperwhites or other bulbs
  • boxood
  • a bouquet of flowers
  • topiaries
  • a live green plant

Our foyers deserve a little thought and care during the winter months! Let’s make them wonderfully functional and fabulous all at the same time as we wait for spring!

    The door of a house or apartment: the entrance to a fairy tale

    Just by looking at the decorated front door and the porch of a country house, one gets the feeling that the holiday is near. Therefore, it is quite justified to decorate the front door, hallway, terrace, porch or porch in the first place, in other words, the entrance to the house.

    As you can see, nothing complicated: other containers, spruce branches, cones and balls will do their job:0003

    If there are logs in the yard of a house or cottage, then give them the opportunity to participate in the New Year’s decor 🙂

    All these ideas can be implemented by residents of city apartments.
    Decorate the hallway, not the entrance group

    If there is not enough space in the hallway for such large compositions, then you can always make them smaller. Or decorate the windows! When you return home, be filled with a festive mood, looking at the cozy windows 🙂

    Catch the idea! Miniature poles can also be placed on the windowsill

    You can add spruce cones attached to barbecue skewers to the branches, as well as branches with red berries (viburnum, wild rose, elderberry, wild apple):

    Ornamental twigs with red berries will be on sale very soon, ideal for composing:

    Party tableware and kitchen textiles

    The kitchen is the place where the whole family spends most of the pre-holiday and holiday days. If you have dishes with New Year’s decor, then start slowly getting them out of the cabinets and placing them on open shelves:

    Buying a New Year’s service is not a cheap pleasure, but it doesn’t have to be done all at once. Most stores sell dishes from the same series BY THE PIECES. Build your collection gradually.

    By the way, the dishes can be quite everyday, but if you add just a few themed plates or mugs, the mood will immediately change to exciting and playful:

    And even if you prefer dishes in neutral colors (not red), it may well become part of the New Year’s decoration – put New Year figurines, a Christmas tree, festive textiles on the shelves:

    Bedding, pajamas and pillows, pillows, pillows…

    Have you ever thought that you can literally plunge into the holiday atmosphere with the help of bed linen? I didn’t think about it either. ..

    … but now, imagining how the children would enjoy bed linen with snowmen, Christmas trees and snowflakes, I seriously thought that I should buy this)

    Christmas home textiles, of course, also for adults:

    If buying several new sets of underwear at once was not part of your plans, then you can start small – buy only one. If you like this idea, then by next year you will plan in advance to purchase the missing kits.

    And don’t forget pajamas! Or buy only pajamas – it will be cheaper, but no less atmospheric!

    Blankets are an alternative to bed linen. If you haven’t got your own yet, but have been wanting to do it for a long time, then start with one or two this year and continue in the next.

    Traditional Christmas colors:
    red, white, green.
    all kinds of cage, Christmas ornaments.
    cotton, linen, artificial fur, knitted fabric

    You can make your homemade blanket more festive by using ribbon with balls, if you sew it around the perimeter of the blanket. A wonderful idea, you must agree!)

    Christmas wreaths, simple

    It is impossible to imagine foreign houses without an abundance of Christmas wreaths. Of course, we would also like to decorate the front door with a wreath, but it is a pity to donate the money spent or time and our work to those who like to take what is “bad” lying. Therefore, it is safer.

    Of the simple options that do not require special materials and skills, there are these:

    Christmas socks and how to hang them

    Not everyone is ready to hang Christmas socks around the house. After looking at beautiful pictures from foreign sites, many people think that a real fireplace is a must for socks. But that’s not the case at all. Just look how many ways you can hang them!

    Hang socks on a hanger in the hallway, or on or near the stairs:

    If you want to hang it by the fireplace (but there is none), then make an impromptu one:

    Absolutely any hanger with hooks, a strong rope and just a thick branch will do for socks:

    Socks do not have to be embroidered, and then also sewed (not everyone loves and knows how to do this). Socks can be knitted and even bought ordinary, but with New Year’s prints.

    Wonderful idea with photos!

    Another way to use non-standard skis)

    Socks can be of any shape, size and color

    You can knit not only socks, but also mittens!

    A real “discovery” for me was home-made decorative fences, on which resourceful needlewomen hang knitted or sewn socks:


    But if you want exactly embroidered socks, then master class

    A decorative pole or a holder for New Year’s socks is an incredibly cool little thing!

    And if you don’t want to bother with all sorts of hangings, then tie/sew a giant gift sock and hide it under the Christmas tree:

    Wow! Creative Christmas trees

  • Collect coniferous branches in advance and wrap them around the prepared frame. Variations of weaving can be different, the main thing is that the branches firmly hold on to the base.
  • Top branches should be wrapped with green thread. It will serve as additional insurance against unwinding.
  • To decorate a wreath, a gold ribbon is wound around it and various decorations are placed on the branches. They should be red or orange.

New Year’s attribute can be performed in one of the evenings by the whole family. A joint lesson will allow you to become closer to each other and will be remembered for pleasant impressions. They hang a wreath on the outside of the door, attracting the symbol of 2019 to their homeof the year. In the hallway itself, you can hang a spruce or pine branch, decorated with tinsel or small toys.

Home decoration accents

Before decorating a house for the New Year with your own hands, you should familiarize yourself with the features of its symbol and modern trends.

Moreover, one should think not only about the decoration of the living room, but also about the outfit of other rooms and the setting of the festive table. Any details are important: all kinds of toys for the Christmas tree, garlands, window stickers.

Among the colors of the main style, it is better to give preference to calm colors:

  • beige
  • light brown;
  • coffee.

Historically, the colors of the New Year are red, white, green, silver. 2019 is the year of the yellow earth pig. Therefore, you can add yellow and brown strokes.

New Year’s fuss is always characterized by the desire to show imagination, to surprise relatives and guests. However, in order not to overdo it, you should remember the general recommendations for decorating rooms for the New 2019year.

Search for a common style

When decorating an apartment or a private house, you should remember that there is a common style. If the inhabitants of housing love everything natural and natural, then you can decorate housing based on the principles of eco-style. They boil down to the presence of natural fabrics (for example, when decorating a festive table), hand-made items (all kinds of toys for the Christmas tree). All lines in the house should be smooth, soft.

And home decoration, for example, in high-tech style requires the right selection of metal products. It is better to refuse gizmos made using spruce branches, cones, candles. Similar compositions in this style will look out of place.

Everything in moderation

When decorating your home, you should keep in mind the necessary limits in the number of decorations. An overdressed forest beauty will become an absurd decoration of the room. Too many garlands, tinsel, bows will create a feeling of clutter in the room. Therefore, you should observe the golden mean between minimalism and the creation of an excess of jewelry.

Color palette

While preparing for the New Year, you should remember that all decorations purchased and made independently to prepare for the holiday should be in harmonious colors. Sometimes it is enough to decide on 2-3 shades that will complement each other. For example, variations of white-blue-red or gold-red-blue always remain beneficial in terms of color palette. Of course, you can choose other combinations. The main thing is that they look harmonious in relation to each other.

There is very little left before the New Year 2019. Everyone is waiting for the holiday with anticipation of joy, exciting events, the best changes in life. Therefore, many begin to prepare in advance. Pre-holiday chores not only cheer up, they inspire a person with faith in the best that is yet to come.

We decorate the house: Christmas tree, walls, windows, chairs, toys with our own hands

Step 1: Christmas tree for the New Year

Christmas tree is the main decoration of the room. Now you can pick up a Christmas tree of any size and color, artificial or natural, use coniferous paws and cones. Usually, the Christmas tree is dressed in a brilliant outfit of toys, wrapped in a multi-colored garland and decorated with tinsel or rain. And do not forget to hang or put the pig. Let her settle in your apartment in advance.

Common Christmas tree decoration trends

When decorating a winter beauty, there are a few principles to keep in mind:

  • We hang toys of different sizes either from bottom to top (from largest to smallest) or in ascending order from top to bottom.
  • We maintain the color wheel in such a way that the colors do not contradict each other. Designers recommend using no more than 3 bright colors in decorating a Christmas tree;
  • Garlands or tinsel are hung vertically, horizontally or in a spiral.
  • Shiny toys with a mirror effect are recommended to be placed near the garlands: when the garland is lit, the reflection of the toys will make your room magical on New Year’s Eve.
  • Dressing up the winter beauty don’t forget to use toys in the form of fir-trees, figurines of the snow maiden and Santa Claus.
  • To decorate the top of the Christmas tree, you can use not only a star, but also a beautiful bow.
  • Don’t forget about the old Christmas decorations, they can be updated using fabric, ribbons, tying them with a lush big bow.

For an eco-friendly design, you will need natural cones, rowan twigs, red pepper pods, oranges, apples, citrus peels, corn cobs, cinnamon sticks.

Original Christmas tree decorating ideas

Choose bright toys (orange, red, yellow). These colors go well with green, brown, white. There should be not only bright toys, but also toys in pastel colors. Decorate the Christmas tree with serpentine, bright tinsel and rain.

Let’s consider a few more ideas how to decorate the Christmas tree:

  • Fabric and plastic roosters, accessories with feathers and grain.
  • Retro decoration using burlap, black and white photographs and old toys;
  • DIY toys;
  • Edible toys: small chocolates, oranges, cookies, they can be combined into elegant garlands.
  • For the year of the rooster to bring you financial luck, add feng shui traditions to the decoration of the Christmas tree and decorate it with coins and banknotes. You need to dress up the New Year’s beauty with good mood and love, and then all your dreams will come true.
Large Christmas tree alternative

If the room does not allow for a large Christmas tree, it can easily be replaced with a small DIY Christmas tree. We take a sheet of paper, fold it into a cone, level the bottom edge, decorate the resulting cone with improvised materials. Get the original Christmas tree.

By the same principle, you can make a snowman, Santa Claus, Snow Maiden, by gluing his head out of cotton. Such figures will turn out well using tangerines, having previously fastened them with a toothpick. Children will love this treat.

Sew angels from pieces of fabric, they will add tenderness and comfort to the interior. On the mirror with the help of paints draw flying angels.

Step 2: Toys for the Christmas tree

Cookies or gingerbread cookies

If you bake cookies or gingerbread cookies after making a hole for the ribbon, then with such edible toys you can decorate the Christmas tree, bouquets, collect garlands by adding sweets with bright candy wrappers.

Making Christmas paper toys
1 Option: Volumetric snowflake

With the help of three-dimensional snowflakes, you can create a special festive atmosphere. Such snowflakes look much more interesting than ordinary ones.

For their manufacture we need: a stapler, double-sided adhesive tape and scissors.


  • We fold two identical paper rectangles like an accordion.
  • We fasten the middle of the accordions with a stapler.
  • Next, cut out any interesting pattern. On both harmonicas.
  • Next, open our harmonica and connect the two edges with double-sided adhesive tape. Thus, to get a semicircle.
  • We perform the same actions with the second instance. Then we fasten both resulting semicircles together, and we get a very creative snowflake. We attach a rope to it, for which we will hang it. You can make such snowflakes in a variety of sizes and hang them like a garland.
2 Option: Volumetric paper ball

We can make a volumetric paper ball.

Required materials:

  • colored paper sheets;
  • glue;
  • scissors;
  • thread and needle;
  • pencil.


  • Cut out 7-10 circles of the same diameter.
  • Each circle is cut along the radius to the middle.
  • Apply double-sided adhesive tape to each cut side.
  • Flip the circle so the ribbon is on the bottom. Next, twist each side to the middle. On each circle, two cones are obtained, and so on we do with the whole circles.
  • Next, sew the cones to each other.
  • Next, connect all the others to make a ball. We do not cut the remaining end of the thread, we will hang our toy on it. Such toys can be made using sheets from magazines or any dense material, it turns out very creatively.

There are many techniques and ways to create Christmas paper toys. The main desire and fantasy, and then there is no limit to perfection.


Decoupage from different napkins, rhinestones, beads looks good on the balls. You can decorate a Christmas tree using one color scheme – it’s always stylish. This design will be unique, inimitable, will bring a lot of positive emotions.

Step 3: Entrance door

Door decoration came to us relatively recently, but managed to win the sympathy of many. Wreaths serve as the basis for the decor of the door. They can be made from spruce branches, twigs, vines and decorated with cones, balls, bright ribbons, tinsel. And if such a wreath is painted with spray paint in golden or silver color (the color of money coins), then it will also work as a talisman to attract money. And in the center of the wreath, leave room for the symbol of the new year. In the event that you do not want to make such an ornament yourself, you can simply buy it in a store. Often, New Year’s wreaths are broadcast from the outside of the door, thereby creating the impression of a holiday from the very doorstep and delighting the neighbors.

Step 4: Windows

The traditional decoration of windows is various snowflakes. They are easy to cut out of paper or napkins. The youngest child will cope with this simple matter, but how much joy the baby will have. Snowflakes can be made flat and voluminous, white and multi-colored, decorated with sparkles or sequins. Snowflakes and winter patterns can be painted with toothpaste, which is then easily washed off with water. You can also draw or glue a pig here. And you can make various stencils and fill them with artificial snow from spray cans. Purchased glass stickers will also decorate your window. Often, a variety of garlands are used for decoration. This will not only fill your room with unusual light, but also give a sense of celebration to passers-by.

So, let’s take a closer look at several ways to decorate windows.

1 way. Snowflakes

Ordinary white snowflakes can be used for decoration, or vice versa, you can complicate your task and make a whole composition of snowflakes. In order to stick snowflakes to the glass, you will need baby soap. We moisten the sponge well with water, then lather and coat the snowflake with soapy water and apply it to the glass, it will immediately stick. This mounting option is very convenient, then after the snowflakes are removed, you just need to wash the glass with warm water and there will be no traces left.

2 way. We use toothpaste

Windows can also be decorated using toothpaste. Most of us remember how in our childhood windows were decorated using toothpaste. There are two ways, we will analyze them in order.

First way:
We twist a small piece of sponge with a tube and fix it with adhesive tape. Squeeze a small amount of paste onto a plate, dip a sponge into the paste and stick it to the glass. Thus, we begin to draw spruce branches. You can also depict toys hanging on our spruce.

This can be done using a stencil – cut out a circle from cardboard, and the stencil is ready. Next, on a slightly dried paste, using a toothpick, draw the details. With the help of a brush, we finish the ropes on which they hang for the toys.

Second method:
draw negative images with paste – for this we take a paper snowflake, soak it a little with water and stick it on the glass. If there is a little excess water, carefully remove it with a rag. Next, in a small container, dilute the water with pasta. We dip the toothbrush into the water in which the paste was diluted and sprinkle the glass with it. We wait for the time when everything dries a little and remove the snowflake. Our holiday window is ready.

3 way. Stickers

In addition, there is a very original way of decorating windows. You can make stickers yourself using PVA construction glue.

For this we will need some materials: translucent stencils, files, glue, a medical syringe and a brush. We put the stencils in the files and circle the drawings with glue. As soon as the drawings have dried, the glue will be transparent, and it is very easy to remove from the sheet. Next, carefully glue the finished stickers on the festive window.

4 way. Patterns from paper

Nowadays it is very fashionable to decorate windows with paper protrusions. Vytynanka are different patterns that are cut out of paper, and then glued onto glass using soap.

5 way. Window sill

Do not forget about window sill decorations, you can place a glowing magical New Year’s landscape on it. And make it yourself.

You will need:
cardstock, foam rubber, glue, scissors and a Christmas garland.

From cardstock we make a box with low sides, as long as a window sill. We put foam rubber at the bottom, and make a slot in it and lay the garland, the bulbs should look up. Next is the most interesting, but also a little complicated. We cut out spruce trees, houses with windows, animals from thick paper and glue them inside the sides of the box. Now we are waiting for it to get dark, turn on the garland and admire our New Year’s landscape.

Step 5: Chairs

A small piece of white fabric makes a lovely chair cover. We throw the fabric over the chair, collect excess material on the back of the back, stab it with beautiful folds. Transparent fabric will be needed for the bow, we strengthen the bow with a pin on the back of the chair.

Step 6: Tablecloth

Decorate the tablecloth with the same transparent fabric, pinning it along the perimeter of the canvas, decorating it with snowflakes, twigs, balls.

Step 7: Room

The closer the New Year comes, the deeper we plunge into the atmosphere of a magical and beloved holiday. Let’s turn into wizards for a while, and make our most secret dreams come true, and decorate the hall in such a way that it becomes a fairy tale.

If the area of ​​your hall is spacious enough, you can make a Christmas tree field. We surround our beauty with “mini-princesses”. We do it in the following way, we beautifully arrange several low Christmas trees around the main Christmas tree. Decorating them in the same style with the main beauty. You can also buy small luminous Christmas trees and also create a beautiful composition from them.

Attach snowflakes and small wreaths to the cabinets. Hang up the tinsel, go rain. Children’s drawings will also serve as an unusual decoration.

A variety of garlands can transform any room. Use corrugated paper, ribbons, gift socks, dry flowers, Christmas balls, tinsel, rain to create these airy creations. You can make a stretch from paper or cardboard figures. Again, here you can depict pigs in all poses – they stand, lie, sit, dance. Garlands of ballerina figurines look great. Even with a slight breeze, your dancers will perform an intricate dance for the delight of the whole family. And if you don’t have time to make garlands with your own hands, buy ready-made decorations in the store.

8 step: Ceiling

we do not pick up a wide rain and collect it in bundles and hang it on the ceiling. We fasten each bundle with the help of English needles. Using the same method, the ceiling can be decorated with stars, snowflakes, paper snowmen and other decorations made by yourself. Don’t forget to decorate the furniture for our fabulous holiday!

We decorate the cupboard and shelves with multi-colored tinsel, rain, toys, organza bows, in a word, everything that goes with the overall design of your room. Silver and gold snowflakes look great on dark-colored furniture. Festive covers can be sewn on the backs of chairs, and we decorate the tablecloth with festive napkins, candles, compositions from spruce twigs. The main rule is not to overdo it, otherwise it will not turn out to be a fairy tale, but a New Year’s pun.

You can also give the hall a winter look, this will create a truly fabulous atmosphere.

We make snow-covered twigs ourselves, for this we apply a small amount of glue on coniferous branches and sprinkle them with small foam. But to make branches in hoarfrost, you will have to work hard. We prepare the following solution: dissolve 500 g of salt in two liters of water, bring everything to a boil, then cool and place the branches in our solution for 6 hours. With the help of salt crystals, you will get a magical, hoarfrost effect. And where you place such an unusual beauty, decide for yourself.

You can create beautiful New Year figurines from tinsel. We wrap the tinsel with a flexible wire. Next, we create various figures: snowflakes, funny faces, Christmas trees. These figures can decorate the wall or just hang them in the place of your choice.

Step 9: Light design

To organize a holiday joyful and bright, a garland with backlight and LED strip will help. LED strip can illuminate furniture, walls, windows. This will add mystery to the interior.

Empty transparent jars filled with colorful toys and turned upside down will perfectly complement the festive interior. Place such jars on a table, nightstand, window.

A garland of cotton balls and tinsel will delight your household. Collect old New Year’s cards, attach them to the ribbon – you get a new garland. Such decorations are stretched under the ceiling, fixed in the corners of the room.

Hang your own calendar on the wall. Draw Santa Claus or Santa Claus, fairy-tale characters on a piece of paper.


The yustra can be decorated with beads, balls, tinsel, garlands and other Christmas decorations that will be combined with the Christmas tree. You can decorate a chandelier both randomly and orderly. For example, using a chaotic method – we hang the balls one above the other below. We can also decorate balls: with snowmen or stars.

Remember your childhood and cut New Year’s paper snowflakes, decorate windows with them. You can create New Year’s compositions from cones and candles, and New Year’s wreaths from pine needles. The window can also be decorated with an LED grid with the effect of falling icicles. This will also create an even greater fairy tale in your home. Fantasize friends!

Step 11: Don’t forget the gifts!

When the apartment is decorated for the celebration of the Christmas holidays, then it’s time to take care of decorating gifts for relatives.

Sew decorative boots using fabric, decorate them with beads, twigs, tinsel, each boot is filled with a New Year’s gift. Boots can be hung over the fireplace, put under the Christmas tree. To decorate the fireplace, use any decorations associated with the New Year.

Fabric bag, will be a worthy decoration for a gift. Pre-decorate it with sprigs with dried berries, pieces of serpentine, foil.

The classic design of a gift in a box, always up to date. The box can be decorated with winter decor or wrapped with festive paper, tied with a ribbon. Attach a cone, balls, a bell to the bow.

A handmade New Year’s card will delight your loved ones. This postcard looks presentable and sincere.

Any little thing made with your own hands to decorate the holiday will become a single whole in the interior. All this New Year’s fuss will bring you a lot of pleasure, joy, good mood.

And, of course, Pig.

It can be crocheted with cotton filling. Sew from pieces of fabric. Make an appliqué pillow. Blind from salt dough or plasticine. Yes, even from paper plates and colored paper.

Decorating a room for the New Year is a great way to show your artistic inclinations and design taste. And even if everything does not turn out the way they write in glossy magazines, do not be discouraged. The best decoration will be the one that will give you joy and a festive mood.

However, with the beginning of December, the streets, shop windows, all the premises where you need to go on personal business or work, begin to live in anticipation of the holiday.

You come to your favorite job and here it is dullness, routine, routine. There is only one conclusion – it is necessary to decorate.

If the boss gave the order to decorate the office, then everything is in order, you can proceed. But if you, as a creative and creative person, came up with such an idea earlier, then you need to agree on it. First of all, with the management and, no less important, with the team.

Entrust office decoration to a designer or show imagination

A well-to-do company can afford to hire a designer. Many holiday planning agencies are happy to offer their services and professionally decorate the office for the New Year without much hassle. There is a lot in their assortment:

  • artificial Christmas trees,

If you can’t afford complex design delights, you can limit yourself to one chip, for example, balloons. Balloon arches are a common occurrence. But you can build a Christmas tree, Santa Claus with the Snow Maiden, snowflakes, a figurine of the symbol of the year, funny snowmen, fairy-tale characters, and even create an original image of your own director (if he has a sense of humor).

The boss gave the go-ahead to decorate the office, but didn’t allocate money or the budget is too scarce, then spending it on balloons is inappropriate. In this case, fantasy and a sense of style will help out. In the meantime, ideas are in the air and go through the approval stage, you need to clean up the premises and workplaces.

Office Decor Options

Your personal space is decorated, it’s time to get into the room. The office is a working area. Decorate it with homemade kindergarten-style colored paper garlands or clutter it with assorted toys and tinsel. A good element for decoration is the same type of Christmas balls in a single color scheme or, at most, 2-3 shades. The color performance corresponding to the company symbol will look original.

Balls can be hung on long threads of “rain”, combined into compositions of several pieces, they can also decorate the Christmas tree. Without a green beauty, the New Year is somehow inferior. Naturally, we are talking about an artificial version, and the color does not have to be green. On the eve of the New Year holiday, Christmas trees of the most diverse colors and sizes are sold.

If the room does not allow even the smallest copy to be squeezed in, you can limit yourself to a coniferous wreath on the door or make a wall version of the Christmas tree. Using a creative approach, it can be made from anything. Suitable:

  • tinsel,
  • LED strip,
  • colorful stickers,
  • pens and pencils,
  • disposable cups,
  • cotton pads.

All decorations are attached to the wall with double-sided tape and, if desired, decorated with balls. With the help of Christmas balls, you can make a hanging version of the Christmas tree. They are attached with transparent threads or fishing line to the ceiling at different levels in such a way that the composition as a whole forms a regular cone.

A good addition to office decoration is artificial snow. Sold in bags, when lightly soaked, it forms fluffy flakes that are difficult to distinguish from real snowflakes. Just don’t put them all around. It is better to use in small quantities for New Year’s compositions with balls and coniferous branches.

All kinds of paper decorations will also create a festive mood in the office. Do not rush to announce a snowflake carving competition among employees. Everything can be bought ready-made:

  • accordion balloons,
  • tassels,
  • pompoms,
  • stars,

Christmas creative from company products or services

Making a Christmas tree out of something you make or sell every day takes creativity, but comes with an added bonus for the firm. It is possible that in this way you will attract new customers. And the doubters will understand that they really love their job here and offer a quality product or service.

Look around and look for a pyramid-shaped object. Perhaps a stepladder will do. If not, you can make a frame using strong wire, cardboard, foam, and boldly decorate it with your products. A Christmas tree in an outfit of mittens, gloves, socks, fluffy hanks of yarn, shreds of fabric is a great option for a cold winter and a good mood.

Disposable tableware or alcoholic beverages are another reason to have fun. A Christmas tree made from bottles or plastic wine glasses will be appreciated. You can build a New Year’s miracle with the help of books, glossy magazines, old newspaper circulation. Packing boxes, lumber scraps, inflated medical gloves (which are especially popular in medical institutions) – everything will work if you connect imagination and creativity.

If the office is not boring and ordinary, then the New Year will bring good mood, joyful upsurge and positive changes!

  • Snowman from books / boxes . Fold magazine books or boxes in a pyramid, add details.
  • Fairy calendar – make a clock in the shape of a New Year’s hero. Instead of a time scale, write the numbers from 1 to 31. Ideas for using this class decoration for the New Year: show the current date with an arrow or simply cross out the days that have passed.
