Living in our small apartment has showed me how to work with awkward spaces. I dream of a large entryway with room for a long console table, but for the time being I make do with a very small entry and have found ways to make it interesting without adding a lot. Our entry serves at the center of our apartment where all of the doorways are off of. Instead of being able to have a long console under a mirror we went with a large round mirror and hooks behind the door and put a small console cabinet on the wall across from the door.
To add intrigue to this space we painted the interior of the front door Hague Blue by Farrow and Ball. It looks a bit more navy in the photos than it does in real life, but the bold color is such a pretty offset from all of the white. It draws your eye to the entry and creates a nice subtle separation of space. To round out the space I added a soft vintage rug, pretty pieces of art and a catchall for keys, glasses, etc. Fresh florals and a great candle always help bring any space to life in my option and definitely set the scene since that is the first thing you see when you walk in. Lighting can also make a huge difference in an entry so a small accent lamp or updated flush mount can be a big improvement.
