GET THE LOOK: 4 FUNCTIONAL, PRETTY ENTRYWAYS FOR SMALL SPACES

The entryway is the workhorse of the house. It’s the place where we set down our essentials, take off our shoes and coats, grab the leash for the dog, and park the stroller. But it’s also, awkwardly, the space in our home where we welcome guests and the first thing people see when they enter our homes. It’s a place where we're all a little afraid to leave stuff for fear of appearing messy, but then stuff naturally seems to pile up there. At S&Co, we’ve realized when the entryway is not properly designed, stuff ends up all over the house. Sanabria & Co.
