You can amaze guests right from the door with the right pieces to decorate your home’s entryway. An entrance is an immediate introduction to your home’s personality, so this first impression matters, whether you are welcoming visitors into a bright villa or a cosy apartment. Here are a few ideas to ensure you don’t fall flat in an attempt to sweep guests off their feet:

1. Mirror, mirror…: If the first thing they set eyes on is sparkle and shine, it can only get better from there. A large mirror by the entrance door can not only bring a vibe of luxury, but it also helps make space seem brighter and larger.
