Things We Love: Making a Grand Entrance

Donald Lococo Architect


 From an evening gown to a perfect floral arrangement, an entrance is sort of like a first impression: You only get one chance to make it.   A round table is one of our favorite ways to make a statement in the foyer.

Paired with the perfect flowers — and, of course, the right statement lighting — it’s a piece that is as versatile as it is lovely.

 In a pinch, we love the idea of pulling chairs up to an entrance hall table for extra seating at a dinner party.

 You know we always love decorating with books. The entrance hall table is no exception!

Catalano Architect and Interiors


 Beyond that crucial table, so many other elements can absolutely make an entrance. The right rug…Woodwork for miles…

And, of course, a show-stopping chandelier.

 And if you have a spectacular view? Don’t forget to flaunt it!

LIsa Sherry Interiors


 Something a little bit unexpected can certainly make an entrance pop — whether it’s cozy furniture or a bold paint choice.

 And a fun pattern on the floor adds instant interest, as does a fabulous arch!

Cool art is instantly eye-catching and we love a seagrass rug for creating a less dressy feel.

Symmetry isn’t required for making an entrance, but a special pair can take a foyer up a notch.

 And, sometimes, the loudest statements are the simplest of all.

 Tables and lighting, accessories and flooring are all great ways to make an entrance. But nothing says, “welcome” quite like filling your home with things (and people) you love! And if you have puppies, so much the better!

Thanks for stopping by today. We hope it’s a wonderful one!

What People are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Bestselling author Cassandra King
