3 Inspirations for a vintage entrance

Whether your entrance is spacious or narrow, it is the first room in the house that gives the impression of your interior. It sets the tone for your decor or, on the contrary, contrasts with it by using a darker or lighter colour than the rest of your house or by using an original wallpaper.

Generally, the entrance should be functional, warm and of course, welcoming. When it comes to design, everything is possible, so you should define your needs in advance according to your situation.

For example, a large family will often prefer a practical entrance with benches, shoe racks, coat hooks and other coat racks to save time in the morning when getting dressed to leave.

Otherwise, mirrors, for a final beauty touch-up, are generally found in all types of entrance. Don’t hesitate to accumulate them in order to combine aesthetics and practicality!

As for the lighting fixtures, they should be selected with care: Wall lamps? Floor lamps ? Hanging lamps? Take the time to choose them taking into account the configuration of your room.

A few more tips: think of narrow furniture and consoles for a long entrance, place a small armchair in a corner to put on/remove shoes more easily, set up a desk to save space, don’t forget to provide a storage space for mail and keys
