Styling The Entry {Welcome}

You know that saying about first impressions? Well the same is true for your home. I’m a huge fan of fabulous entryways because they set the stage for the rest of your abode. And they’re the perfect place to show off those little details that make your home uniquely yours. Here are some of my favorite entryways along with some helpful tips for creating a grand entrance in your own home.


This entry is simplistic in style but dynamic in details. We wanted the console table to be the star in the entry so we selected a dark starburst mirror to tie in with the handrail on the stairs as well as the warm espresso hardwood floors.  My client loved turquoise so instead of going bold, we used subtle variations of the color with the storage box accessories and graphic lampshades.

On the other end of the spectrum is this beauty. I love all of the over the top details, sparkle and drama of this entry.  We began layering the space with this gorgeous Radnor wallpaper from Osborne & Little . The subtle yet traditional pattern became instantly chic because we selected the metallic finish.  A black lacquered console helped to ground the space and also worked perfectly with the dark hardwood floors.

The details came together beautifully and the overall look is a perfect blend of modern glam that we were after.  Sometimes you just have to roll with pieces you love and as you begin to layer the space, you edit…edit…edit until it feels right visually.  If you really take a good look at this console, you will see how simplistic the overall design really is.

The Elexis lamps help to brighten up the dark console table and tie in with the wall color used throughout the rest of the home. We grounded the space with another neutral element…the rug! I love the contrast of the graphic pattern and how it really does tie in with the overall feel.

The starburst mirror is bold and doesn’t take away from the wallpaper, but helps to bounce a bit of light around in the dark entry. The x benches have to be one of my favorite elements. We had the made with a custom silver leafed finish from JC’s Upholstery and the tops are upholstered in Schumacher’s Glimmer in Mineral fabric to keep the glitz going! But you can find a few options HERE and HERE.

Get The Look {Glitz & Glam}

I love nothing more than walking into the entry space of someone’s home and being blown away. Of course I’m talking about the glitz and glam factor that makes me swoon! A little sparkle, a little shine and tons of over the top glamour are the perfect elements to create an entry that is sure to wow any guest!  Of course the Holiday season easily lends itself to the sparkle and shine of the season, what a perfect time to push for a little glamour!

This entry happens to be one of my favorites from a Studio Ten 25 project!  You can see a few more details of the entire project HERE.

Worlds Away

Working with great companies and vendors that offer beautiful designs season after season is just one of the great joys of working in this industry! In addition to sourcing items for Studio Ten 25 clients, I also get the chance to promote my favorite companies even more through my shop. And today, I’d like to call your attention to a very special vendor that always comes through for me, Worlds Away. Their designs are clean-lined, modern, geometric, and glamourous with just a touch of global influence. You can see why I love them, right?! How about this perfectly chic bedside dresser that I used in a client’s master bedroom…

And, never underestimate the power of a sleek and simplistic piece. This console made the perfect place for my client to store their office necessities.

Pass The Mustard

Another post this week about yellow and this time we are looking for yellow pieces to tie the bedroom together. Since we have our basics in place and know that the yellow drapes are a go (just need the right fabric) we need to bring in a bit more yellow. Here are a few of our favorites.  I’m loving addition of red and turquoise and the much needed movement that the art will bring to the room.

The Sunburst Mirror, always in style

I’m still obsessed with the shape and glamour of a starburst mirror. I also love the fact that is has become so mainstream that affordable retailers have continued to offer them.  As a designer, I have access to trade only products so I thought that I would share a few of them along with my favorite styles from stylish retailers.

But first, here are a few of my favorite pics.

Zgallerie, Crate & Barrel, Target and Walmart are just a few of the places you can snag a starburst mirror at a great price.  The offerings range in finishes from driftwood to gold and silver. If you looking for a specific color, try looking at TJMaxx or Homegoods for a deal so you can repaint it to match your decor!

Whoo Hoo, I scored this fabulous wood sunburst mirror at my local TJMaxx Homegoods for $59!!!

Here is an affordable option from Wally World
