Inspiration for a small entrance



A large foyer big enough for a round pedestal table is something I dream of having one day. Sure, it is a waste of square footage but it would be so nice to welcome guests with a beautiful arrangement of lovelies upon my pedestal table.  Don't you think? Well, if you are like me and do not have the luxury of a spacious entrance here is some inspiration for getting the most out of a tight entry.

A floating cabinet gives the illusion of more space. In this case, it also allows for a glam fur stool to be tucked underneath. The drawers are perfect for keeping keys and other miscellaneous items from view.

 A floating shelf takes up minimum space and is perfect for the day's mail and to display some pretties. Again, a stool can be tucked underneath for tying shoes or in my case for my husband to wait when I lie and yell, "five more minutes and I am ready!"

This is a great example on maximizing a small foorprint. The botanicals give a sense of life in what would typically be dead space.  A nice decorative mirror helps reflect light and provides the chance for one last glimpse before you open the door.

Simple but useful. A few hooks in a high contrast finish look sharp and help keep bags off the ground. Instead of baskets, a canvas tote can be used for storage.
