Hey babies! Today we’re talking entryway design ideas. Have you thought about the first impression your home gives when you walk through the door? Paying particular attention to styling the entry is a great way to set the tone for the design scheme of your entire house.
While I was researching this post I had a hard time zeroing in on one design style. There’s a lot of good stuff out there! So we’re going to do a series of entryway posts, and for this first one we’re focusing on bohemian style, with a minimalist flair.
You might have noticed in the pics above a few unifying elements. There are several low benches, a few Turkish runners, round mirrors (because obviously), and greenery everywhere (praise the almighty snake plant!).
Personally I’m digging those chairs as well, I think they add an element of coziness to a design style that might otherwise feel a little sterile. I also like the hooks for keys, purses, and whatever else. You could do hooks in addition to or in place of a mirror.
We’ve done the dirty work for you and put together a shopping list for you to style your own bohemian entryway. No need to thank us, that’s the kind of friends we are.
- Entryway bench
Stow your purse, stack some books, faux-casually drape your most beautiful throw over it.

- Modern-profile planter
You’ve got to have somewhere to put your obligatory snake plant or ill-advised cacti.

- Entryway side chair
Let’s be honest, no one is *ever* going to sit on this thing. But it looks good, and that’s what’s important, right?

- The runner rug
This is where you can add in some color and a bit of a busier design if you like.

- The round mirror
The pièce de résistance of your (and by your, I mean my) entryway. You can’t legally call it boho without this, just trust me on this one.
