How-To: Freshen Up Your Entry This Spring!

How-To: Freshen Up Your Entry This Spring!

After the dreary winter months of over there are talks of what to plant in the garden, Spring cleaning, and just sprucing up around the house. Sometimes you just need something to freshen up your space, and what better place to do it than the first room you see when you walk through the door – your entry. You don’t need to go out and buy all new furniture and repaint to give the space an updated look. Here are a few ideas to give your entry a Spring facelift.

1. Add pattern– Choose something that will be durable. This will be the spot that gets the most traffic in your home. Something with a pattern will be fresh for Spring.

2. Mirror above your console– Adding a mirror with an opinion will give your entry personality and flair. It doesn’t have to be loud, a frame in a neutral color and a great shape will make a statement.

3. Bring the outdoors in – A vase of blooming branches will bring life into your entry. These can be real branches trimmed from your cherry tree or picked up from your local florist. For a long-lasting look, use a few of our fake branches.

4. Brighten things up – Add a new lamp to your console. This is a great way to keep the lighting perfect at night in your entryway. Pretty by day, pretty and functional by night.

5. Put some spunk into it – If you are feeling ambitious or just need a whole new look, switch up your console. The entry is like the “appetizer” for the house so make sure it makes a statement!
