When guests come over to your own, their first impression of your décor begins in the entryway. Many people invest a lot of time and money into decorating their homes, but they forget to add some personal touches to the entryway. Decorate your entryway to make your home feel warm and inviting to guests from the minute they walk through the door.
Many people don’t feel that decorating their homes for the summer holidays is important like it is to decorate for winter. But that does not mean there are no summer holiday decor ideas. You can have just as much fun making your home festive in the summer as you can in the winter.
The most important element of decorating an entryway is lighting. When someone steps through your door at night, they should be welcomed with enough light to come inside. Entryway lights shouldn’t be too bright or overwhelming, so choose something subtle such as a flush-mount fixture or sconces. You can find these light fixtures in beautiful designs to match any home’s décor. Make sure the walls of your entryway are painted in a fresh, inviting color that compliments the rest of your home. Mirrors are another great accessory for entryways. Hang a mirror on the wall above the small table, so guests can quickly check their appearance before coming inside.
In the heat of summer, many different types of flowers are in bloom. Choose colorful annuals such as marigolds or petunias. Plant one flower each in small flower pots. Arrange the pots on the floor of your front porch, near the entryway. If you have a gate or railing, look for small flower pots that can hang over the rail. If you want to be extra festive for July 4th, try planting red, white, and blue flowers or using red, white, and blue flower pots.
