Before: Bland and BoringHosts Matt Fox and Shari Hiller transform a cluttered and unwelcoming entryway into an inviting foyer. A fabric wall treatment, fun family photo project and a revamped buffet/hutch create a warm, welcoming and clutter-free entrance to this home.
The first impression of who we are comes from our entryway so its design is very important.
After: Warm and CozyClutter in an entry is a concern so fabric-covered walls, simple artwork and a new area rug that ties in with the living room is all that's needed.
Before: Imposing ClutterDirectly across from the front door is a large cabinet made up of two pieces, a buffet bottom and hutch top.
After: A Serene SpaceNeutral walls and the newly painted buffet set the stage for a frame that highlights special photos and some decorative yet functional items including a key plate and buffet lamp.
