Get This Look: Entryway

The entryway sets the tone for the rest of your home because it’s the first area that guests see. We’re highlighting the entryway from the Living Room Makeover, which we partnered with Jessica McRae from SwatchPop! and our very own Meghan Giddens, Design Expert, to decorate. It’s important for this area to be light and bright so it welcomes guests to your home. In this entryway, the seating area immediately communicates “sit and stay awhile,” while the other area is comfortable and decorated to show off the family’s style.
