The entryway is the first impression people get of your home. You want it to feel welcoming and give people a taste of what to expect through the rest of the home. It’s also a fabulous opportunity to make a statement and show off some of your personality.

A great entryway not only feels inviting but also reflects the style of the person who lives there. It’s a wonderful opportunity to express yourself. One way is to make a bold statement that will instantly catch someone’s eye and delight them as soon as they walk in. Another option is to go more subtle by infusing the space with character and capturing the spirit of what you want people to feel when they are in your home.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of entryways that either opted for a bold statement or successfully captured a particular vibe right from the get-go.

10 Bedrooms That Are Wonderful in White

When choosing colors for a bedroom, it comes down to how you want to feel in the space and what inspires you. Most commonly, people want a bedroom to feel serene and relaxing. They want a tranquil retreat they can unwind in at the end of the day and feel refreshed by in the morning. A great answer to this is a white bedroom.

If you have kids, they’re sure to have a lot of fun pitching in, too.

10 Stylish Daybed Ideas for a Multi-Functional Look

Multi-functional furniture is a clever way to make the most of a space, especially if you’re limited on square footage. Daybeds, for example, can serve as both a bed and a sofa. Sometimes, they even come with built-in storage to optimize the functionality even more.

Daybeds usually fit a twin-sized mattress (you can find some that fit a double), so they aren’t ideal for every scenario, but if you are looking for space to sleep one person then it could be a great option for you. They’re particularly useful in small spaces (such as a studio apartment or loft area) or in a multi-functional space (such as a home office/guest room).

If you think daybeds limit your design possibilities, think again. They can be as elegant and beautiful as a standard bed. Here are some inspiring examples to give you some ideas.
