Styling An Entry Table
One of the most common questions I get in the store is, "Do you have any tips for styling my entry table?" Entry tables can be a tricky one. They're the first thing you see when you come home. They need to look pretty, but also be functional. Here are my top tips for styling an entry table & check out what I put together at the store! PS Check out Miss Molly making her debut in the video at the bottom!
1 | Focal Point - Picking a focal point to go above the table doesn't have to be difficult. I recommend a mirror (so you can check yourself out before leaving the house), a collage of photos to create simple lines, or one large piece of art work like a tapestry.
2 | Lighting - A lamp is a must for an entry table in my opinion. Of course, it allows light, but it creates a warm & welcoming look once the sun goes down.
3 | Catch All - Entry tables on a day to day basis get junky real quick. You throw down your keys, mail, purse, kick off your shoes so don't forget to add pieces that provide function by quickly hiding all your junk! When setting up this look I used a basket for shoes & this fun white lidded jar for keys!
4 | Balance - In this look I have 3 objects on the top right so I matched that by having 3 objects in the bottom left. I also added a tall lantern to be a similar height of the lamp. If one side of your table looks a little heavier or busier than the other switch some things around to help level everything out!
5 | You do you! - I say this every time someone asks me about styling their home... "You do you!" It's your house! Incorporate things you love in your design & don't feel pressured to recreate someone else's house.
