Decor Dreams: Welcoming Entryways

If you are an apartment dweller like me, you would probably have noticed that once you’re inside the main door – you are inside the living room and that’s that. Very often, apartment dwellers are forced to skimp on the entryway due to the following problems:

  • No available foyer or entry space in the floor plan
  • Small living room and small apartment size – no sq ft of space can be wasted in decorative objects that have no real use.
  • No need for a designated entryway – just get inside the door and dump bags onto sofa 🙂

Whenever I’ve been thinking about my future dream house – I end up confused right away.

  • Should I have a separate passage or corner to use as an entryway (or mudroom as it is referred to outside India)?


  • Should I just skip the whole idea and dump a closed shoe rack outside my door?

I have been collecting inspiration images of entryways that I liked – from Indian homes as well as International homes. Here are my favorites along with some ideas that I think can be easily adapted by anyone else 🙂
