Horizontal fabric shades control light brought into an entryway
Dec 14 2010
First impressions count, and decorating the entryway will give visitors an immediate idea of how savvy the homeowners are about their holiday decorating skills.
Greenery at an entryway and stair railings give a decorative greeting to visitors.
According to ScrippsNews.com, a seasonal arrangement can be put together for a bench, table or bookcase that may be located just inside the door year-round. Stair railings with a few sprigs or simple garland of greens can be decorated in a woodland-style with pinecones and cranberry picks.
Ornaments aren't just for the Christmas tree. They can grace a mantel or window sill, or an assortment can be displayed in a large glass bowl in the foyer, the website recommends.
Lighting in the entry area can be accomplished with a string of holiday lights, or a lamp that's used year-round but with a decorative grouping of small, similar items – a collection of Santas, angels or snowmen – at its base.
Light from a nearby window can be offset by an attractive window treatment. Horizontal fabric shades have the look of a window shade, but the individual slats are reminiscent of a venetian blind. The amount of light brought into the area can be managed by controlling the angle of the slats.
