STYLIST’S TOP TIPS
Paint a black stripe at eye level to create a bold monochromatic look. Here, it also defines a space for wall-hung storage boxes – we chose crisp white for a striking contrast. If the box has a back, paint it to match your wall paint. Make your entryway feel more spacious. Wall-hung furniture such as the boxes and wall shelf help keep belongings out of the way. Likewise, keep shoes, bags and other necessities hidden away in storage baskets under a bench seat.
Create a feature wall with wallpaper – it’s easier than ever thanks to new advancements in wallpaper. Adding a large feature mirror helps to break up the wallpaper pattern and create a focal point.
Decorate with plants and runner rugs to make your entryway feel more inviting. Faux plants are a good option for spaces with not enough natural light (or if your green thumb is more brown!).
