Go through these 5 ideas to decorate your Entryway shared by Disha Bhavsar and Shivani Ajmera, co-founders of Mumbai based interior design and styling company Quirk

The ­­­­first impression is most often the last impression, and don’t we all want to wow our guests the minute they step inside the home? So pay attention to how you decorate your entryway. Says Shivani Ajmera, “It should reflect your personal as well as home style and seamlessly transition into your space.”


  • Make it Pretty
    According to the Quirk Studio duo, there are a few essentials for this place – an accent mirror, console or shelf, statement lights, rug or runner, and a shoe rack which doubles up as a seat, all contributing to a well-curated hallway design. Says Shivani, “…explore several styles while designing your entryway – from modern and bold patterns to eclectic and traditional.” Disha Bhavsar adds, “The ideal entryway would have bold patterned flooring with subtle textured wallpaper on one wall. The opposite wall can have a mirror and a stunning console with flowers and candles. A jewel-toned bench with pieces of art and statement lights finish the look.”


  • Fake it
    “Many homes enter straight into the living rooms. So it is important to create an illusion of an entryway by placing a partition or bookshelf,” recommends Shivani. Try creating an alcove and use bold colours or printed wallpaper to set it apart. Consider a slim credenza or repurpose a simple, open shoe rack – use the top tier as a shelf for curios and the bottom ones for shoes.


  • Simplify
    For a clean look, consider elegant wall hooks and a pretty bench. Says Disha, “Don’t clutter your entryway with multiple, small pieces. Instead use larger, statement pieces for a dramatic impact with functionality.” Have designated areas for essentials to lessen clutter.


  • Bring in the Art
    Hang framed artwork right up to the ceiling for an elongated effect. “To make it stand out from the rest of the house make use of textured wall paint with art pieces or family photographs,” recommends Disha.


  • Store it
    It's important to consider how the entryway can be utilized for extra storage, especially in a small apartment, as it plays a crucial role in optimizing home interior design.  “If you have any vertical or horizontal niches, flush them and convert them into a concealed storage space. A bench seating can also double up as a shoe rack underneath,” says Shivani.
