Rose buds, we are almost through the winter chills. The season feels a bit lengthier than normal between the pandemic and the unpredictable climate keeping those of us in colder climates cooped up inside.
March is passing quickly and spring is at our doorstep. This new season calls for a refresh in the area of your home that oftentimes gets neglected: the entryway. Let’s freshen this “not-quite-a-room” with some urban farmhouse décor touches, shall we?
The entryway is a great place to introduce your style; let people know what to expect when they arrive at your door. Decorating the area with functional pieces improves your day-to-day experience and also makes you feel great about a calm, organized entrance to your home.
How cute are these baskets? I would use the small one on top of an entryway table with things I need as I'm walking out the door. I appreciate a place for masks, keys, reusable grocery bags and dog walking supplies. The medium and large baskets would have a home under the entryway table. They make a great spot for shoes, hats, scarves and mittens - or even a place to stash the kids’ backpacks.
With spring cleaning on the horizon, these baskets could also be great for organizing your pantry or linen closet, too!
Updating light fixtures or adding some light in the entryway offers function and a taste of hominess. This woven lamp with a canvas lamp shade grants a bit of warmth and kindness to your entryway. My favorite part of this lamp is its simplicity; it has rustic texture, but is still subtle and casual.
Tassel garland is a simple way of dressing a table. It can read beachy or bohemian and provides the kind of detail that really completes a look. Strands of garland can work wrapped around a candlestick or draped across your entry table.
This neutral garland is also chic twined around coffee table books or wrapped around a flower vase on your kitchen counter. Let the garland speak to you and don't be afraid to get creative and step out of the box.
I can’t think of a finer way to pull the whole space together than with a charming wooden chandelier. Changing out your lighting may feel intimidating but you will be so happy once you make the move. This statement piece will give off a beautiful ray of light in your cozy entryway space. The shape is unique - almost acorn-like - and will look wonderful as you enter your home. This piece is an attention grabber. Your modern farmhouse lighting search ends here!
This chandelier would also be captivating in other areas of your home, such as a laundry room, office or even above your kitchen island.
This honeycomb metal wall hanging is so versatile. I suggest hanging it anywhere in your home that you feel needs a little sprucing. This piece could be a showcase for any small collections you have or potentially a place for small succulents or air plants.
A few quick-to-grab essentials could be stored on these shelves if you decide to use the hanging in the powder room as opposed to the entryway. Your favorite lipstick, perfume or hand sanitizer would fit perfectly on these hanging shelves.
We love a combination of function and aesthetic! The material of this honeycomb wall hanging really represents modern farmhouse décor. Stepping out of your comfort zone with a piece like this may inspire you to mix up your style a bit. Here's your opportunity, Rose Buds! I am so intrigued with the freedom that this art piece suggests!
This elegant mirror comes in two sizes that could be styled together or alone. A mirror adds a pop of style to a wall along with functionality: take a peep at yourself before rushing out the door. Hanging this mirror above your entryway table draws your eyes up.
This mirror’s natural wood trim can accentuate neutral tones in your home. If you have the ability, hanging a mirror across from or in front of a window amplifies any existing natural lighting and brightens the space.
Who doesn't want that? Strategic placement of your entryway mirror can give your space more character if the reflection in the mirror is fun or interesting.
With winter nearly in our rear-view mirror, let the spring warmth motivate you to embellish your entryway or the common territories in your home. Incorporating just a few new pieces is a great way to cultivate your living space and its functionality.
Soon, we’ll open the windows to let the fresh breeze in. May the cheerful new season bring the farmhouse decorating vibes your way. Happy sprucing, Rose Buds!
