Make A Grand Entrance



An entrance doesn't have to be grand to be grand. Make sense? 
I'm saying it doesn't have to be large to look great. 
Here's some of my Pinterest favs.



Mirrors, light fixtures and artwork can make a small space look more grand.






Bold graphics in black and white are another way to make a grand statement.





Pops of color are very grand.




I still like to dream of grand grand foyers too.





I am currently working on my own little foyer which I'll show you next week.
Life is grand.

These are gorgeous! I was just thinking about this this morning. We don't have a grand or even great entrance but was trying to think of things. I can't wait to see what you are up to. :)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

These are all gorgeous. I think the first one is my fave.

These are just beautiful!! I wish I had a foyer here to decorate, the front door opens right into the living room! We do have one at the lake and it is pretty empty. These pictures are so inspiring! Thanks!

XO,

I could see why you would love these, Tammy. I love them all, but that turquoise table is calling my name. ;) Can't wait to see what you do with your foyer.
Enjoy your weekend.

LOVELY! these pictures make me want to redo my front entrance. Love the black chests and the woodwork in these shots...ok, so what is the sideways panelling called? Is there a name for it? I just love it.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Yes I struggle with my foyerless house...a hall tree and welcome to my stair case! But I will be working on it~nice inspiration.

Oh my gosh this is a little freaky! I'm starting my foyer I think next week. Getting rid of the red wallpaper! I loved all these inspiration pics. I can't decide if I should paint stripes or do some sort of stencil. Looking forward to seeing yours. Happy Weekend Tammy!

Beautiful entrance ways. You walk in my door and you are in the living room. I do have a little table and mirror.....Oh, to have a grand entrance way!

Don't have an entrance in our home, but I enjoyed seeing your pins. I like the simplicity of the 3rd one because I love the horizontal shiplap siding. Can't wait to see what you are doing to yours.

Cindy said...

I love a pretty entrance way, mine is small, too small for even a table. But I have the word "Home" on the wall and it has two pretty doors. Two chairs and a row of old hooks are the only embellishments it needs.
Your images are lovely, so grand! I love them all!
Hugs, Cindy

I liked the second one with wallpaper...they are all nice.

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Grand indeed...I love them all!!! Can't wait to see what you are up to in your foyer! :)

iheartsunnydays said...

Gorgeous pins! I adore the wall sized mirror :)

podso said...

Like the grand entrance tour! I think it's nice to have a center table if there is enough room. But would it end up being a catch all? Looking forward to seeing what you do with your "little foyer."

These are all gorgeous. Hard to pick a favorite. An entry, big or small makes a statement. Eager to see what you are working on. ~ sarah

One of the entries reminds me of my friends' house. I wonder if she copied it. I love the Farrow & Ball one. Their wall paper is gorgeous.

I agree that entrance don't have to be large to make a great first impression.

I dropped by after you left a really sweet comment on our blog about our living room project. Thank you so much for the support. You started following our blog and we are now following yours.

Looking forward to getting to seeing more of your projects.
