Small Entryway Needs Decorating Help

Dear Style Studio Team,

I love that Ballard Designs has this support for their customers. I love your products and point of view. I would LOVE your help.

The entryway space inside my front door is tight and the wall is small (with a light switch right where I want to hang something).

The wall to the right of the door is 26 3/4″ wide. I would love a place to place keys and even store shoes or just look nice.

My style is rustic/vintage/eclectic. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.



Front Entryway

Dear Nora,

When walking in the front door, it is always good to have landing spot for your keys and phone.

Since your space is smaller, we suggest using the Benton Etagere in a rubbed chalk white finish. This piece is open and light which will keep your entrance from feeling heavy.

Use the shorter version of the Benton and then stack three mirrors above it for last minute lipstick touch-ups.

This little storage gem will certainly meet your needs and styling choice.

Happy Decorating!
