Pin and Tell: Bold Entrance

This week’s Pin:


An entryway is your first chance to impress your guests, why not make a statement?!

The space itself isn't overly large or grandiose on its own, however the designer used scale perfectly to maximize the space visually.  The large console and oversized frame serve to make the entry feel much larger than it actually is.  The pattern on the floor not only draws you into the space, but it's an optical illusion, again making the entry seem more spacious.

This entryway is a stellar example of filling a space to make it seem larger.  Less isn't always more, interiors-wise.

In addition to all the entryway's amazingness, that drum light is also calling to me.  It's telling me that it wants to be in my dining room.  I think it's right, don't you?
