One of the best ways to make a small space feel larger is by adding a wonderful mirror. It can catch the light and give the illusion of a more open space. You can choose one with a sleek and modern frame to give it a cleaner look, or choose one that is more ornate for added elegance. It will also give you chance to check how you look on your way out.

Decorative Coconut Bowls

CBSMK044When your guests enter, they might want a place to put their keys, so why not use that as an excuse to provide a decorative bowl for the purpose? A hand painted coconut bowl can be both attractive to look at and versatile. You can also choose to offer them wrapped candies in it as a welcome. Lining them up on the wall can also serve as a statement piece to greet them.


Since often the space in an entryway is limited, you might consider hanging miniatures instead of full size art pieces.
