Today I am going to share with you my tiny entry way that I just finished styling! I am SO happy with how it turned out. I have been noticing amazing entry ways on Pinterest for quite a while now. I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to them. I have seen some beautiful entry ways with awesome benches and seating. Some entries have decorative tables or other large pieces of furniture. Many entry ways have the space to do this but many do not, including my own.
I wanted my entry to make statement for visitors because it is the first thing they see when they walk in the door. That can be hard in such a small space. As I have mentioned before, our house is a split entry. So the front door is ground level and then once you enter the house there is a small landing and then stairs up to the living room and stairs down to the basement. So no room for a bench or chair or anything like that. We have double front doors but only the one on the left has a door knob. The other one opens but we never use it unless we are moving large things into or out of the house. Because the front door is at ground level, the ceiling just above that area is vaulted. It’s the only place in our house where we can have a larger hanging light because all of our other ceilings are the typical height.
In a small entry way there are a few statement pieces that can make it amazing… these include a great rug, cool lighting, and unique wall decor. None of these things require a lot of space. Let’s take a look at my tiny entry way with big style….
I have been crushing over dot coat hooks… like literally obsessing over them. I was going to try and make some of my own, but when I found these from CB2 at a good price point, I decided to buy them. I’m so glad I did because they are everything!
The “Good Vibes Only” print is something I typed up and had printed on nice paper at a copy store. I kept seeing prints on etsy with this quote, but I didn’t love any of the fonts. So I thought.. hey, why not just make my own! I love love love the way this print is hung. So much more unique than a traditional frame. I found this inspiration on Vintage Revivals. I changed it up a little and hung it with leather cord instead of the cotton rope she used.
This amazing plant stand was made for me by Dax. Best husband ever. I love it!
The first thing I changed in our entry way was the light. This was actually one of the first things I changed in our house when we moved in! So the light has been up for quite a while. I fell in love with this light from World Market and just had to have it. I love it so much more than the old one! It is priced SO good.
Here is a view from the top of the stairs, you can see how small the area actually is. This amazing rug is from Urban Outfitters!
Tiny entry ways can still be styled and look rad, don’t you think?
