First impressions count—the entrance of your home is not only the first thing visitors will see but is also what welcomes you day in and day out. Although transitional spaces such as entryways may often be overlooked, there are plenty of good reasons to spruce them up.
Besides keeping the space clutter-free, finding a centrepiece for this area instantly lifts its look as well as your mood. One of the best ways to do this is through the use of art.
“Less is more—people tend to be happier in a less cluttered environment. Select the right artwork that makes you happy so that you can feel at ease,” says Isabelle Miaja, founder of Miaja Design Group and Miaja Gallery.
Khairuddin Hori, curatorial director and partner of Chan + Hori Contemporary, concurs. “Be mindful not to make the space too cluttered, and allow the works to breathe,” he says. Whether you’re aiming to design an entrance that dazzles or a restful tableau you’ll look forward to seeing, keep these expert tips in mind to craft an inviting ambience.
