How To: Create A Welcoming Entry

I’ve been thinking about the entry way to my house…the approaching winter, with its crazy predictions of heavy snowfall, has me looking for ways to make my entryway a more inviting and functional space in my home.  Last year I spent lots of time fighting the snow and mud my kids kept tracking in and I’m hoping to make some changes this year so it works better for my family, and looks better too!

Entryways are hardworking rooms and are your home’s first impression…that’s a big job!  I’ve partnered with Dutchcrafters to show you how to put together a beautiful entryway whatever the size or style of your home.  Dutchcrafters specializes in Amish-made furniture that is not only hardworking and functional, but beautifully designed to work with a variety of design styles.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces styled together with other fun finds from Target, World Market and Birch Lane.
