Part I: Accessorize Your Entryway
by Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind
“As a design writer, I so often see the lines between art, fashion, and decor to be hopelessly blurred—as it should be. We’re all in the game of aesthetics, so why not embrace the overlap and rejoice in beauty altogether?
“Case in point: I recently finished designing the entryway in my home and shared it on my HGTV.com column. It’s equal parts quirky and bold, which is a combination I can always get behind. Yet after walking past it day after day, I can’t help but think I’m not showcasing its beauty quite like I should. Sure, it’s a functional entryway for keys and bags, but can’t it be more?
“Enter today, when I realized what it was missing: my vintage jewelry collection and favorite accessories. You’ll recognize a few pretty ModCloth finds in the mix (can you spot them?), and I love being surrounded by my favorite finds daily. After all, fashion and decor go hand in hand, so it’s high time I decorate with baubles galore!
“I think the look will work equally lovely in a bedroom space as an inexpensive wall art installation. Just grab a few hooks from your next thrifting trip and bust out the hammer! Here’s to being surrounded by beauty—wherever you are.”
Stay tuned for the next pad-pampering portion of this four-part interior design series, and don’t forget to let us know how your entryway makeover turned out!
