Hey you! We are working on Week #7 now which I am so excited to introduce you to this week. Make an Entrance! Your Entrance into your Home is what makes you happy when you arrive and what greets your guests when they come over! So what does your Entrance look like? If it is a hot mess, no worries that is why you are doing The Joyful Home Project and this week you will focus on your Entrance into your home.

You Entrance is your Front Door but the really Entrance is when you walk into the Front Door. Do you have a drop station? Everything should look tidy, clean, and organized. You should have s spot for your mail, your keys, your handbag, your shoes, your coat, and whatever else you bring back with you on a regular basis.

If I had the opportunity to come to your home, I would tell you that your Entry Way is your Focal Point and not only should it be tidy, clean, and organized but it should greet guest with something unexpected, something they didn’t see coming, inviting, fun, bud edgy maybe even over the top!

I put some ideas for you together below…

If you don’t know already, my style is Black and White. I love to make the back drop of your house black and white and then add color in or sometimes no color! Love the use of pale pink here. Great ideas for the handbags and the Drawer Unit to store all the “stuff.” Source
