Welcome yourself home with a warm reception- create a space, no matter how small, that is attractive and inviting. Let's go in, shall we?
Have some flowers at the door to greet you. A hall stand, hat rack, or simply some hooks help minimize clutter, as does a small table or shelf to throw your bag, keys and mail on. A mirror is always useful for a last minute check when you're running out the door. A small rug at the door is often needed; a small kilim or seagrass runner is decorative and camouflages dirt. Treat your entry as an important part of your home; it's where first (and last) impressions are made!
