Create a Cozy, Welcoming Entryway for the Holidays

blog-entryway-farmhouse-holiday-hygge-1Having a home that exudes “hygge” — that safe, cozy feeling that makes you want to come in and snuggle up with a warm, fuzzy blanket and a steaming cup of hot cocoa — is something most of us strive for during the holiday season.

Whether you’re staging to sell or just decorating for your own pleasure, one of the first steps in establishing that welcoming vibe for your home is to create an inviting entryway. This space is literally the first impression people will have of the interior of your home and sets the tone for the rest of the house. And during the holidays, you want visitors (or if you’re selling, potential buyers) to feel your house is a place where they can relax, unwind, and feel at home.

For example:  We loved this cozy, farmhouse style entryway we found on Pinterest (despite my best efforts, I could not find the origin of this photo — if anyone out there knows, please contact me here, as I would love to give them proper credit). This entryway is simple, inviting, comfortable–full of “hygge” for the holidays!

Pottery Barn Inspired Fall Living Room for Less (with FREE Shopping List!)

PotteryBarn-autumn3I looooove fall! I think it’s a combination of the changing weather (albeit slight in Houston), my birthday, and Halloween candy and costumes that make it feel festive. For years at our house, we’ve spent the last weekend of September/first weekend of October decorating for fall, firing up the pumpkin spice scented candles, then making Rice Krispie treats while we watch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. It’s a good mood setter.

And then a few days ago while flipping through Pinterest, I came across a gorgeous room that had appeared in the Pottery Barn Fall 2017 catalog. Like all Pottery Barn designs, it’s perfect:  stylish and seasonally perfect, yet cozy and welcoming……

It’s also a little pricey if you’re of a mind to replicate the entire room (that gorgeous PB sectional alone is over $5,600). And since the design is from an earlier catalog, a number of the items are no longer available. 

This is why e-design makes me so happy :-). Because I love making beautiful spaces (and I love the hunt), I re-created the look by finding budget-conscious look-alike pieces. The cost? I was able to replicate THE ENTIRE ROOM with quality furniture and decor for around $4,600 — that’s less than the sectional alone! Since this wasn’t a project requested by a client, I am happy to share my shopping list (with links to purchase any of the items directly online) for FREE — just sign up below!

 

I should point out that, unlike many bloggers, NOT ONE of the items in my shopping list is an affiliate link. Not that affiliate links are a bad thing necessarily, but it does mean that I don’t receive a penny from any of the sites you shop–I simply chose these items because they were great designs at great prices!
