It’s officially peak guest season and if you’re like us, you’d want your entryway to look swoon-worthy from the minute guests step in. Whatever the occasion may be—whether a Thanksgiving dinner, a Christmas party, or a book club gathering—nothing beats a well-designed entrance that leaves a lasting impression.
Then again, the entryway is the last space you see as you leave the house and the first space that welcomes you home—so you might as well make it work for you. The compromise: have it tell a story that would interest others, but also make it feel like a warm embrace you’ll love coming to after a busy day.
If you’ve been itching to update your entryway but aren’t sure where to start, here are eight staples that make an entryway according to the pros.
Statement lighting is often reserved for the living room and dining room, but not for Isabel Runsewe, the founder of Isy’s Interior. According to her, the foyer is a great place to update your lighting and make the space feel high-end.
“It can be as simple as swapping out bulbs for a more appropriate hue, to replacing fixtures and adding medallions,” she says. “Selecting the correct lighting hue(s) for your space adds a level of warmth and sophistication and sets a relaxed atmosphere for you and your guests as soon as they arrive.”
Depending on your style, you can go big with sculptural light fixtures, make a subtle statement with some vintage sconces, or maybe even invest in stylish table lamps that double as conversation starters.
For interior designer Laura of Laura Solensky Design, no entryway is complete without a mirror.
“Any size entry can accommodate some type of mirror so that you can check your appearance before you leave the house,”

As we look ahead to 2024, it's important to reflect back on what colors we should leave behind. Since interior designers work with so many different color palettes throughout their projects, we asked a few to share the colors they'd be happy parting ways with and why.
One of the best things about looking ahead to a new year is anticipating what trends we’ll see on the rise. From predicting the top colors to determining next year’s booming decorating trends, designers are pros at knowing what we’ll all love in the coming months and beyond.
A hot design trend can be as exciting as it is tempting. It offers the perfect opportunity to shop for more home decor and redo your space to make it feel new again. But not all interior design trends appeal to everyone, even the ones that seemingly everybody likes. There are some design trends that, popular as they are, are secretly despised by some unlikely haters—interior designers.
As the temperatures start to drop and sweater weather arrives, you may start to look sadly at your beautiful, lush garden plants. Like it or not, their days are numbered! When the first frost arrives, tropical plants are done for the season, and you’ll have to buy many of them again next spring.
When it comes to decorating the walls of your home, we all know how daunting and pricey this kind of project can be. From prints and frames for a sprawling gallery wall to a high-end canvas statement piece, the price (and time) required to find the perfect wall decor often ends up being more (much more) than you bargained for.
If you’ve found yourself stumped on how to style that lonely corner in your dining room or make use of the empty space under your stairs, you’re not alone. In fact, interior designers have a whole slew of tricks for dealing with these spaces that are not living up to their potential.
Kitchen islands are notoriously sparse spaces because they are often used as extra workspace in the kitchen for prepping meals. Plus, with just a few inches of elbow room on either side of the island top and bottom, it may often be difficult to decorate this smaller space.
