5 Rustic-Inspired Entryways You Can Recreate
Welcome guests with a pretty setup and an undeniable warmth
Nothing spells like a good welcome than a well-curated vignette by your home's entrance. Aside from a unique door that gives guests a peek into your home's style, a rustic-inspired setup can also leave an impression on visitors.
Whether you have a tight corner to work with or a spacious foyer where you can go all out on furniture and decor, here are five interesting nooks worth checking out:
You don't necessarily need big pieces to complete the entryway. A blank wall is like a canvas that you can liven up according to your style. Go all out on wall art, typographic home decor, and other accessories that add character to your space.
Vintage finds with a distressed finish are more than welcome while a huge accessory can tie the whole look together. Choose pieces with a unifying element to keep the look cohesive. In the photo above, most of the items have wooden touches that work well with the neutral-colored bench.
The rustic style is known for the use of wood and its welcoming appeal. Amplify the vibe in your entryway by injecting vintage touches through a secondhand mirror, an upcycled table, and repurposed huge glass jars filled with a mix of twigs and fresh blooms.
To look for a captivating mirror to add to your space, visit Crate & Barrel.
To achieve a complete setup, get ready to work with a wooden bench, a wall-mounted shelf, large vintage hooks (for hats, coats, and hoodies), a set of pillows, a throw, and your favorite plants. Let the photo above be your peg. Start sprucing up the shelf with your choice of woven decor pieces and a vase filled with flowers.
Turn your entryway into a multifunctional corner where you can also relax and unwind by displaying a few indoor plants and carving out a nook where you can keep some books. Place another basket under the seating piece to serve as storage for slippers and shoes.
More often than not, the entryway serves as a command center for keys, bills, loose change, and small accessories. To keep these in place and to avoid clutter, have a table to hold everything together. Keep up with the rustic theme by going for a wooden piece.
If you're ready to invest in a new table, schedule a visit to Mav Furniture and inquire about the Driscol Huntboard—it's meant for the dining area but it would also look perfect by your door with its drawers (for bills and other essentials) and the space underneath for extra baskets. You may also want to check out the Erving Accent Chest—it has three drawers and a lovely two-toned Bohemian Oak and Slate finish.
Notice the pieces showcased above? Believe it or not, the wall features an old door transformed into a coat/bag rack. Achieve something similar with the help of a carpenter—ask him to measure the space where you intend to place the rack and source for wood that you can use.
Complete the look with an open shelf, a few framed family photographs, and potted plants. To make it extra functional, add a mini step ladder or stool and a tray for your boots and other footwear.
