Guest Picks: 5 Fresh Entryway Themes

I have serious envy. I have a teeny tiny “foyer,” and there isn’t even space for a hook to the jacket, let alone accessories and furniture. But just in case I eventually purchase a bigger home, I have been saving up ideas for a fun and practical entry. Here are five new themes that I would love to integrate into my own home. — Lauren from A Lovely Lark

Caroline Gomez

La Console – EUR 260

Natural: This entry table has it all: looks, functionality and a design layout.

Schoolhouse Electric

Lafayette Table Lamp & Fabric Color – $339

This very simple table lamp would fit in nicely with a variety of decorative styles, and it is classic enough to stand the test of time.


Tall Rope Basket – $98

The ombré effect helps to freshen up the conventional rope basket.

Brook Farm General Store

Pair of Linen Trays – $48

These linen trays are lovely on a table, and they would serve as a great landing place for keys, email, etc..


Zigzag Tray by Up in the Air Somewhere

Metallic: Every space requires a little glitz and glamour. This tray has it in spades. It’s art that is basically functional.


Papier-Mâché Bowl, White and Gold, The Mini by Etco – $13

This easy, natural, white bowl provides an enjoyable surprise with its metallic interior.


Petal Pusher Wallpaper – $125

When I had a genuine entryway, I’d love to actually play it up and define the distance with background.


Strut Console Table by Blu Dot – $449

Punch of colour: Bring a little excitement to your entry space with this vibrant modern table.

Saatchi Art

‘Anticipate’ Printing – $24

You want the first thing that you see when you get home and the last thing that you visit before you depart to be beautiful, energizing and inspiring. This painting fits the bill for sure.

The Land of Nod

Crystal Ball Table Lamp, Yellow – $149

This fun lamp is offered as children’s decoration, but I think it would look lovely paired with complex grown-up pieces as well.

The Container Store

Decker Trinket Tray, Navy – $11.99

This tray would punch up any boring table. The pattern and colour are both so transitional they would work well in a contemporary or more traditional space.

Luke Console Table – $3,200

Rustic: Natural wood warms up any space. This can be an inviting dining table to come home to.

Brook Farm General Store

Wire Storage Basket, Medium – $28

This basket would be a fashionable place to store blankets, shoes or just about anything.

Check your own hair or makeup within this stunning all-natural mirror before going out the door.

Keep Calm Gallery

You Look Lovely – GBP 14

And in the event you want a little confidence boost, this print is the perfect way to start off your day on the right foot.


Danish Midcentury Modern–Style Console Table by Black Elm Woodworking – $2,150

Transitional: This clean-lined console would work well in a traditional, contemporary or contemporary space.

Room & Board

Infinity Round Mirror – $599

Classic, simple, clean lines make this mirror a winner in almost any space.

I love that this can be used as a door stop, a contemporary sculpture or a bookend.
