SwatchPop! Dream Home: Entryway

Welcome to the second week of SwatchPop! Dream Home! This is a social media series where we present a collection of inspiration photos and you vote for your favorite. The winning inspiration photo will be featured right here on our blog with tips on how to get the look for your home. Week 2 featured a collection of entryways. Take a look at the collection that was voted on:

Dream Home Entryway
  1. Amber Interiors
  2. Brian Watford
  3. Frances Loom
  4. Amy Kartheiser Design
  5. Katie Rosenfield Design
  6. Alexander Design

After a big week of voting, entryway #3 from Frances Loom was the winner! This entryway design is warm and inviting with a bit of rustic style but in a bright and airy space. This is a great inspiration photo that can incorporated into entryways of all sizes and budgets. Remember, the trick to decorating using inspiration photos isn't to copy the design exactly. The key to using inspiration photos is to help narrow down the style you want in your home and incorporate some of the details from the inspiration photos.

The biggest detail in this space is the patterned, antique rug which adds character. Another detail is the wood beams and columns which adds warmth and contrast to the space against the bright, white walls. The large gallery wall adds a personal touch and the large, white mats make the photos look important and modern.

  3. Chair
  4. Lighting

If your entry space is tight, we can still achieve the look on a smaller scale. Try using the same characteristics as the entryway inspiration photo, like the color and pattern of the rugs, the style of the lighting, the personalization of the gallery wall, and the warm tones of the wood elements. Take a look at how this winning inspiration photo transformed into one small entryway table.

  5. Throw
  6. Throw
  7. Tray

The texture of the table in this small design comes from the inspiration of the wood beams and columns. The basket with throw blankets adds color, texture and dimension. Using all of these details together will create a welcoming and warm look in your home that directly complements the winning SwatchPop Dream House design week 2 winner!
