Making a Grand Entrance
   
First impressions are everything and your home's entry is no exception.  Make it a good one.  This very important room sets the tone for what's to come.  This space should lead you into your home with anticipation for what's around the corner.  Don't underestimate the power of this small room. When it comes to making a grand entrance, here are 6 great ideas for making that stylish first impression.
  • Layered soft dimmable lighting allows you to control the brightness depending on the situation (bright for reading mail and low for parties).
  • Fresh flowers or a plant brings the outdoors in creating a natural progression of space.
  • Scent (the unspoken design element) enhances the experience.  This is an ideal place to add a lightly-scented candle. 
  • Table or Chest - so you can deposit or pick up as you walk through the door.
  • Mirror to make that final check as you the leave the house.
  • A great rug that takes up most of the floor space will make the area feel more like a room.

Caliente AF-290  
This bold color signifies change, strength, and desire.  This confident hue is dramatic and smart.  Try mixing it with crisp whites and chunky textures. Done the right way, this color can be a stunning addition to any room. 




Oceanside SW 6496 
Inspired by travel and beaches, this soothing, dramatic, bright folklore, cocoon color is versatile working in both traditional and modern interiors.  We're loving the saddle brown door with contrasting clean, bright white. Oceanside is a rich, bluish-green jewel toned hue that bridges old and new, light and dark.
