Eclectic Entry Design Ideas

Nothing sets the stage better than an eclectic entryway design. With blended styles, cohesive but differentiated elements, and a one-of-a-kind approach, an eclectic entryway is sure to be a show-stopper. Though eclectic design is globally inspired, it is also more informal and casual, which can create a very homey entrance to welcome guests into your space. Making a statement with your eclectic entryway design isn’t hard, this design style is inherently impactful, but being an entryway also means that function is important. Even if your entryway is purely decorative and you enter your home through a different area, your eclectic entryway layout should be conducive to how it will be used. For instance, adding a decorative seating element, like a chair or bench is always a nice touch. A console or pedestal table is a must for any entryway, and in an eclectic entryway, you have a chance to make a bold statement with a unique piece!  One very important element of any eclectic space, entryways included, is artwork. When scrolling through eclectic entryway design ideas, you’ll notice that wall decor is a forefront component of this bodacious style, and for good reason. Artwork pulls a space together, sets the tone - whether that is formal, informal, whimsical or stately, and in an eclectic entryway design, artwork is a finishing touch that can not be forgotten. Of course, an entryway isn’t complete either without a mirror! You could use a golden gilded mirror, a boho rattan one, a bone inlay mirror, or really anything in between for an eclectic entryway. Mirrors add a decorative and practical touch in an entryway and are perfect for smaller entryways which don’t have much natural light, as they will reflect light around the room and give the appearance of a larger space. Another essential element in any entryway is an area rug. Rugs can not only add a protective layer to your flooring, create a sound barrier and soft landing, but they also have great potential to be a statement piece in any design. There is no shortage of rug designs to choose from, and in your eclectic entryway design, the rug is a key piece.  Arguably the most exciting part you’ll notice about eclectic entryway ideas is that there aren’t any clear rules. Eclectic style is a curated look and highly personalized, which is what makes it so fun. Keeping colors complimentary and the layers of patterns to a handful, you can avoid going overboard, however. You don’t want your eclectic entryway to feel dull, but you also want it to be welcoming and polished. If you’re ready to start exploring some ideas, we’ve compiled our favorite eclectic entryway design inspiration and we hope you enjoy it!

Elegant Entry Storage

Elegant Entry Storage

Home entryways work as a kind waystation for our daily comings and goings. As such, they often accumulate clutter that makes your space feel messy. To avoid a cluttered entryway, we suggest finding the right storage solutions for your space. In this room, we've placed baskets that can hide shoes and accessories for easy access when you leave the house. We've also added a large credenza for extra storage.
