We love the serene look this coastal classic style produces in the entryway. It’s super functional with a storage credenza, mirror, chair, and lamp all sticking to the same neutral color scheme and laid-back, beach look.

This is one of our favorite tables for foyers featuring neutral decor. The mix of lamp, greenery, and shapely items along with the variety of sizes creates a cool, dynamic look. The style uses lots of ceramic and natural materials and the floor mirror adds a functional aspect that’s unique because it’s not placed over the console like in most entryway table designs. This refined rustic look is perfect for those who want a ‘classic’ entryway with a bit of unique twist.

For a handsome, refined rustic look, we love this round table in the center of entry. It’s different from a typical console table and has both height and impact to make a bold statement in the center of the entryway. It’s great for those who need entryway ideas for a larger space and want to make a style statement with their home decor. However, it’s not the best for those who have a busy entryway with lots of traffic and kids coming in and out.

Farmhouse First-Impressions

This look is all about rustic minimalism, featuring organic texture in the wood bowl, pampas grass, woven basket, and natural wood console. The simple organic and soft forms create a totally zen style and the bowl, lamp, and basket are all functional pieces. Plus the added chair makes a great stopping place to put on shoes, etc. This look is great for those who want a functional, rustic entryway but don’t love clutter or unnecessary decor.

Home on the Road: Decor Inspired by Our Favorite Travel Destinations

School’s out for the summer! And while that usually means trips to the beach and some extra time of work, most of us had summer plans that came to a screeching halt because of COVID-19. Whether it was a vacation, a wedding, a family reunion, or just plans to be a tourist in your own city, we’ve all had to recalibrate and rethink how we’ll spend our summer days and nights.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun! In fact, we think it simply means you should bring the vacation vibes to your home! How might you do that, you ask? Well, simply think of your favorite travel destinations, and let those be a starting point for some travel-inspired home decor updates this summer! (Perhaps you even want to reallocate some of your travel funds into home decor updates??)

To spark some ideas, we’ve rounded up some of our team’s favorite travel destinations—along with summer travel decorations inspired by each location. Ready? Let’s hit the road. It’s time to kick off your stay-at-home summer with some travel-inspired room decor!

Countryside Retreat

How idyllic does it sound to escape to the English countryside right now, with its rolling green hills, wildflower gardens, and ancient stone cottages? The countryside retreat may have to wait, but you can definitely bring those relaxing vibes into your travel inspired home decor.

Start by mixing antiques—or pieces with an antique vibe—with classic elements and natural textures. Wood finishes should feel weathered and rustic, and a light color palette of pastels and neutrals will help drive home that countryside vibe. Though, we love pops of blue to help ground the look! Layer in some traditional patterns, like gingham or soft floral prints, and finish things off with pops of fresh florals, just like you’d find in a countryside garden. (Bonus points if you cut them from your own garden!)

Easy updates to get the look:

Swap an accent chair or coffee table with a weathered wood one that you find at a vintage or antique shop for an eclectic cottage feel.

Tropical Beach Resort

Craving some time at a beach resort? Work in some subtle tropical beach themes into your home decor instead. Start by thinking of the colors and materials that you might see on an island getaway. Then, embrace that laid back, coastal feeling with beach-inspired artwork, woven materials and textures (like raw wood, jute, and rattan), and bold pops of color. And definitely make sure you include foliage in your space for those tropical beach resort vibes! Palms are always a win, but big, bold leaves like elephant ear banana leaves add a fun sculptural element to your space.

Above, we went for a more subtle beach resort vibe, and stuck with more of a blue color palette—but you could also go bold tropical with pinks and greens and fun global prints! Either way, we love the idea of incorporating travel-inspired home decor like the Palma Pendant, pictured here—it’s a sure way to imbue any space with island vibes! And don’t forget to set out some travel books so your mind can wander.

Easy updates to get the look:

Introduce a few key pieces of foliage such as palm trees and leaves. If you’re not in a climate to support those plants, go faux!

Desert Spa Oasis

There’s nothing like a spa retreat to the desert southwest to rejuvenate your soul and your skin! While we don’t recommend recreating an at-home mud bath, you can bring the desert spa vibes home. Start with a rich color palette of high-contrast neutrals. Think: warm browns and clay reds inspired by the arid southwestern landscape. Sleek furniture adds to that spa-like vibe.

Layer in organic, boho prints in the pillows, rug, and art—with patterns and textures that recall the geography of the desert. Finally, subtle sourthwetern accents and a few potted succulents or cacti will really set the mood!

Easy updates to get the look:

Pare down your color palette so it’s rooted in textured neutrals. Add a diffuser so you can pump lavender and eucalyptus oil through the air. Then, may we suggest, an at-home facial?

Modern Mountain Getaway

If a getaway to a mountain lodge in Lake Tahoe or the Rockies is more your speed, then this one’s for you. You know there’s nothing like the lush greens found on the mountainside in the summer. So, channel that vibrant but serene palette in your space.

Neutral textures and floral prints further evoke the feeling of lush forest growth. Rustic furniture pieces that have a modern feel are a perfect add—specifically, a gray tone wood finish, which helps recall the rockiness of the mountain. All set? Don’t forget to pamper yourself with 5-star hotel treatment. A tray with cocktails creates the perfect DIY mini bar!

Easy ways to get the look:

Introduce green into your space, either through a total room makeover with fresh wall paint, indoor plants, or with pops of green in art and accessories for an earthy vibe.

Coastal Beach House Vacation

There’s something about the idea of a beach house in Nantucket that feels like the most classic and dreamy place to spend your summer, don’t you think? Alas, maybe next summer! In the meantime, infuse your home with coastal decor and those beach vacation vibes.

Start with a palette of blues and seafoam greens, paired with neutral hues. This will create a calming backdrop and draw your mind to the sea and the sand. Can’t you almost taste the salty air?? Then, incorporate sea-themed home decor, like coral prints or sculptures. Now grab a book, put your feet up, and pretend you’re on vacation!

Easy updates to get the look:

Add a few pops of blues and greens through your throw pillows for a subtle beachy feel. Drive home the beachy vibes with travel-inspired home decor—like using a large shell as a decorative object on your coffee table or replacing a table lamp with the white coral number pictured above.

5 Storage Ideas To Ready Your Entry For Summer

With summer in full swing (finally!) it’s time to step outside and soak up all that the season has to offer. No doubt you’ve been heading in and out of the house a lot more for beach days, picnics in the park, and summer evenings out with friends.

Read this next: 15 Easy Updates to Summer-ize Your Space 

So, make sure your entry is prepped for your on-the-go summer lifestyle by keeping it organized and functional. We’re offering up 5 easy entryway storage ideas that will turn it into the perfect hub and a practical yet stylish checkpoint for summer.

Ready to get your entryway into summer-shape? Read on for 5 of our best entryway storage ideas!

entryway storage ideas1. Add Breezy Catchalls

If you’re looking for easy, good-looking storage that doesn’t crowd up your entry, woven baskets are a great way to go. They’re an easy addition that’s guaranteed to add both function and a summery vibe to your entry.

They’re great for holding everything from your daily yoga mat to umbrellas and beach towels, or they make perfect hampers for dirty shoes and sandals that you don’t want to drag into the house.

Stylist Tip: Squeeze a few baskets into tight corners, line them up side by side, or even stack several small lidded ones on top of each other.

entryway storage ideas2. Hang It All Up

Work in some wall hooks and hanging shelves with coat racks in your entry to give yourself easy access to all your summer totes, beach towels, bike bags, backpacks, and light jackets. This not only helps you save on floor space but it also provides a place for all your summer essentials.

Stylist Tip: Make the most of your entryway by thinking vertically. Line up a row of hooks along one wall then add shelves above for even more storage space.

entryway storage ideas3. Ready Kid-Friendly Storage

Need your entry to be functional and family-friendly? Add a storage bench (or tuck a few baskets under a regular bench) so that your kids have their own designated space for stashing sandals, beach toys, and even swimming trunks. With a bench, you also have the added bonus of a seat in the entry for little ones to put on and take off their shoes.

Stylist Tip: For maximum functionality, incorporate wall hooks above your storage bench, which will turn your entry into a mini mudroom that has enough storage for the whole family.

entryway storage ideas4. Make For a Double-Duty Vanity

Add a console table and hang a mirror above it to give yourself a makeshift vanity where you can do a last-minute wardrobe checks before you dash out to all your summer parties. Use the surface for trays, bowls, and catchalls that can hold sunglasses, jewelry, and keys that you’ll need whenever you head out.

Stylist Tip: Choose an open-base console that allows you to squirrel away two ottomans underneath it for moveable seating. No need for perches? Bring in baskets instead for additional storage that’s also attractive.

entryway storage ideas5. Create a Convenient Storage Station

If you have a spacious entry, anchor it with a dresser or a storage chest that conceals all your everyday on-the-go essentials — be it extra chargers, notebooks, or blankets that you can fold and tuck away.

The best part about a storage chest is that you can also use it as a seasonal extension of your bedroom closet. Sneak in extra storage by using your entryway to hold extra summer scarves, sarongs, and light cardigans.

Stylist Tip: A storage chest alone is all function, but you can dress it up to be a focal point by bookending it with two chairs and adding a mirror or pretty art. To add durability, lay down a natural-fiber runner or rug to give your entry a relaxed summer vibe.
