Quick Fix: Entryway Wallpaper

The entryway sets the tone for your home. It’s the first room everyone sees upon walking into your house and acts as a greeting for your guests.  We’ve found that many people struggle with how to truly convey personality, style and functionality into the area. One way to add a touch of color and visual interest is to apply a wallpaper.

No two entryways are created equal, so the question always is: What wallpaper should you choose for the foyer?

So today we’ve gathered a few quick tips to help you select the right wall coverings for your space.

The Long and Narrow
It’s a common misconception that you can’t use vivid patterns in a small space. In fact, a pattern on the walls can often help in expanding the appearance of a smaller room. By using graphic patterns you can help keep the eye moving up or straight, distracting from the tighter area.

TRY: Stripes or geometrics

Bright and Airy
We believe that if your entryway is lucky enough to have a lot of natural light spilling in, then use it to your advantage. Keep the space light and bright with a toned down hue and a fun pattern.

TRY: Muted florals, wide stripes, neutral toile
