- a much needed balance between Function and, as it is your first opportunity to make a strong impression, Style.
Here are some great examples of spaces that are bound to make a first great impression while providing functionality to the home owners.
A MINIMALIST APPROACH:
Furniture with simple lines, a refined-industrial coat hanger and warm accent colours and textures make this entrance stand out.
Below you'll find another great example of a minimalist approach where, due to lack of space, a floating shelf provides functionality without overwhelming the space visually. Visual interest was then added with the art display on the opposite wall.
BOLD AND MODERN
A modern, bold approach offering loads of storage without sacrificing style. Attention was paid to the smallest of details when decorating.
A toned-down approach, compared with the image above, but still featuring bold colours and a clean, modern design.
Even with very little space available, a functional, welcoming result was achieved in the image featured below.
Streamed down, classic shapes create a crisp, inviting vignette, soften by the potted orchid and the green decorative ball.
In the image below, a more dramatic result is achieved with a heavily carved mirror frame, elegant furniture silhouettes and bold, energizing yellow accents.
A casual rug, warm wood finishes, industrial chic pendants and a heavily marked presence of people (toys, cloths, boots, purse, etc all out in the open) give this entry a relaxed, casual look.
A more minimalist approach in the setting below but still conveying the same relaxed, country look.
A mix of old and new, rough and smooth, functionality and style make for two different outcomes: a vintage-rustic look in the first image and a Scandinavian chic design in the second image.
