Great Rugs in the Entryway
(Via A Cup Of Jo)
Entryways can be such boring spaces that hold practical things like shoes, coats and other random items. They become a catch all for that which cannot make it to their actual home. For me, my sunglasses always gather right on the entryway table like a herd of sheep. I also have a large tray that on some days holds bouquets of flowers and other days mail and trash. Basically entryways often become ignored.
One detail that you can add to create an instantly beautiful entryway without even trying is a fabulous rug. A colored or patterned rug can set a sophisticated tone for your home. When guests first arrive, they will be pleasantly greeted at the door. For a vibrant look, choose a rug with lots of color and pattern.

A neutral rug with simple patterns still can create a pretty tone in your entryway. The rug seen above fits perfectly with a more modern, simplistic aesthetic.
Of course you want something durable and practical for heavy traffic. Synthetic rugs are a great option for entryways. Also dark tones, patterns and a thick weave are all important details for an entryway rug.
You can go simplistic with entryway furniture and accessories. But if it’s too minimalist for you, remembering that adding a patterned rug will do the job of creating a strikingly beautiful entryway!
