An entryway is one of the most important spaces in every home, being the welcome-card for the rest of the house. It almost works as the first impression of everything that will come next, assuming the role of the statement room. Almost as the main character in a movie.

In this article we introduce you some one-of-a-kind rooms that, in our opinion, make a very strong first impression.


A Stripped Entryway

In the entry hall of a Mercer Island, Washington home designed by Kelly Wearstler, the light fixture is vintage, and the stone sculpture is from JF Chen; the walls are painted in Glidden’s Onyx Black, the floor is patterned with three different marbles, and on the ceiling is a wall covering by SJW Studios.


A Red Cedar Entryway

The entrance hall of a Wyoming home designed by Madeline Stuart features a partition of Western red cedar. The vintage bench is by Paul McCobb. The brass side table is by Blackman Cruz Workshop. The tree-trunk table is from JF Chen, and the cowhide rug is by the Rug Company.


A Pink Jungle Entryway

This pink foyer by designer Jonathan Adler is nothing less than grand. By keeping the color scheme restrained to touches of brown, white and gold, the room feels pristine, graphic, and modern.


A Terracota Entryway

An arched interior window in shoe designer Christian Louboutin’s Egypt home- a space made of earthen bricks and decorated with pieces from his travels.


A Well-Sculpted Entryway

A gilt sconce hangs above a Lalanne sculpture in the entry hall of a Manhattan home designed by Stephen Sills.


A Gilded-Aged Entryway

A rotunda with 18th-century trompe l’oeil wallpaper panels.


A Pattern-Filled Entryway

The antique bench and console in this entrance are Chinese. The ceiling fixtures are by Circa Lighting, and the Venetian mirror is from John Rosselli Antiques. The ceiling is papered with a custom-made stripe, the wallpaper is by Lee Jofa, and the floors are painted in a high-gloss custom color by Fine Paints of Europe.
