Happy Home

Make It Yours: Happy Entryway!!

So I found this awesome space from a beautiful Los Angeles home. I love how the color of the walls accents the other elements in the area. Those yellow rain boots with those pretty dandelions across the bench add little pops of color that make this entryway fun and nice, I just love it!

Alright, now I would love to see that space everytime I get home and add a little style to my foyer that is both beautiful and very functional. First, where can I get a bench like that? Checking out local flea markets and second hand stores is always my favorite way to get some awesome furniture at a great price, that both looks great and doesn’t leave you starving until your next pay check. Also remember, you don’t have to find an exact match, look around for a wood coffee table, a wooden trunk, or just a big block of cool looking wood, anything that will add some character and zest to that space will be perfect.

All those little details can be a great do it yourself projects that won’t take forever and most of them you can make with things you already have lying around the house.  Some craft stores sell wooden letters for less than a dollar that you can paint any color you want to add a little touch of your own style to this new foyer space. Also check out blank wooden frames and other knick knacks that are cheap and easy to paint, I’d go with something I can hang to add a little excitement to those walls personally, but there are lots of different ways to add some color, so be creative and have fun!

If you’re a buyer more than a maker, no problem check out the list I came up with below of some amazing accessories from a couple different online stores, most of them cost less than $50 and would look great in your new entryway.

Turn your entryway in a happy space that you can enjoy when you first open the door to your home at the end of the day!
