Creating a great first impression!

You might not think it but your entrance way is one of the most important rooms in your home. Why? well it's the first place you see when you walk into your house and the last place you see when you leave. It gives you that ...ahhh I'm home! .. feeling as you walk through the door. It's generally where you drop your keys, handbag, coat and often shoes....unless of course you are super tidy ...unlike me.

It's the first place your guests see when they come to visit and it gives them an impression of the rest of the house....it should be warm and inviting, bright and inspiring and show a little bit of your personality too.

What could be more awful than walking into a cold, dark, drab hallway smelling of damp and with no decoration at all.  you want to feel welcome in your own home and you want your guests to feel welcome too.

Essential decorations really depend on your needs but I think a mirror is definitely a priority....everyone needs that one last check before rushing out the door to ensure they aren't wearing a beard of toothpaste!. After that I think each to their own...

Check out these simple ideas that are easy to recreate in your home and there is something here to suit every taste.

Enjoy!
