It is time to create the home you desire and there is no better place to start than your #Entrance! Doesn’t matter if you call it your #Foyer, #Entry, or #Mudroom , it is the first impression your home gives. Ohhh how I dream of a Country Manor with a grand Receiving Hall. My guest would arrive and be dazzled by the beautiful archway, fresh cut flower arrangement, and crystal chandelier! My Butler would take their coats and escort them into my Drawing Room prepared to offer them Champagne and Hors d’ oeuvres... Wait, now I am awake! And, the first one that will greet you at my house is Miss Bea barking!
Well, back to the real world...where we live busy lives that demand our homes #function without a Butler to “receive guest”. Today our homes may not have an area separating the outside from the Living Room, but it doesn't matter the size or layout, you can always create a #beautiful and #functional space. As you enter your home it should feel like your sanctuary, your safe place. your haven. Our homes should nurture and inspire us to create!
So let's get started! Dream big and fully embrace the essence or #energy you'd like your #home to radiate when you or your guests enter. As a #Designer and #Organizer these are the questions I ask myself when I'm planning a space.
Tip: Start with a deep breath so you don't get overwhelmed and let your inspiration soar. This is the fun part - you get to DREAM!
Coats, hats, gloves
Umbrellas, rain boots
How do you want your #Entrance to feel?
fun, formal, classic, utilitarian, modern?
Clean, easy to maintain
#Clutter free of mail, coats and shoes
Welcoming and Cheerful flowers, plants, a spot to pause to check your appearance
Well lit, Cozy, Charming ,
A focal point like art to draw your family and guest into your home, your signature
. Mat or rug to land on
TIP: Stand at your entrance and take a photo.
With a photo you can see the REAL space. We tend to not see reality while in we
are in the space.
Now we can begin to implement the plan by comparing your photo with your dream space. Please do not get #discouraged or #overwhelmed. You will follow the plan one step at a time. This system is tried and true!
Sort like items together
Purge items that are broken, outgrown, duplicates, not needed
Measure for containers
TIP: Do not purchase #containers until you have sorted and purged. Then you will see
what you need to #containerize.
Remember, your entrance will embrace your family and friends. Let this space reflect your amazing uniqueness.
