In the April 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living, I shared my guidelines for setting up a beautiful, yet functional entryway. As fall approaches and your families start a new school year, I thought I'd revisit my advice from the column and other inspirational entryway ideas from past issues of Living.
More often than not, I find that people overlook the entryway as a space that needs to be decorated. However, the entryway sets the tone for your home, providing guests with an initial impression of your design aesthetic and greeting you each time you walk through the door. My hope is that these examples inspire you to create a space that is a pleasure to walk through as you start or end your day.
