Entries. They can get real busy, real fast. Junk mail piles up. Bags and shoes are left to fend for themselves above or below the ubiquitous console table. Sometimes the umbrella just doesn't make it back into the carefully selected stand. As much fun as it may be to make these spaces colorful and enticing for visitors, perhaps simple color schemes and furnishings are best for the dwellings permanent residents. These entrances are downright soothing without giving up the drama factor, clothed in simple black and white paint. Okay, there may be one or two awesome vintage rugs or anchor wall hooks floating around too.
