first impressions - the entry



Like it or not, first impressions are made in a home's entry.  Is it neat and tidy, stylish and organized or just a dumping ground for everyone's stuff? 

An entry should be functional as well as beautiful. Start with great table, a lamp or two, fresh flowers, a small tray to drop your keys and maybe somewhere to hang your hat...

*** Hi, Fabiana~~~ Just "found" you ("by happy accident"!) a while ago, & have been back-reading ever since!!! (And at this rate ~11:30 P.M. here in AZ ~ I'm NEVER going to get back to bed!!!)...

ANYhoooo, this "born n' bred in SO CAL" gal is enjoying it all immensely... so much so that I signed in for receiving your blogs by e-mail, at a time when I've been T*R*Y*I*N*G to wean myself OFF of them, or at least whittle them down by a few!!! (But "no can DO!")...

Mannnny thanks~ this is great fun ~ looking forward to your NEXT blog!

Hi Fabiana, I think entry ways are one of the hardest spaces to decorate. These are all beautiful! Thanks for sharing at the OHP.

Love all the beautiful entries. Our front door has glass with no curtains and I tell my husband that our entry must always be perfect because it is seen even before you enter the house.

I am flying to San Francisco for the day on Saturday and heading to a store I saw with clock faces in the window. I can't have one as large as the one you featured, but I sure love that huge clock on the wall.
