10 Entryways That Wow with Wallpaper

The best entryway decor makes a great first impression as soon as you walk through the door. This may seem like a tall order to fill, but it only takes one or two elements to create a “wow” factor in that area. Wallpaper is a great solution.

Wallpaper adds instant style and character to an entryway, whether it’s bold and colorful or simple and chic. It’s an easy way to create a captivating first impression that both you and your guests will love. It doesn’t matter how big or small your entryway is, wallpaper can make a huge difference.

For example, if you don’t necessarily have an easily defined entryway, wallpaper can help visually define it and give it some charm.

Here are 10 stylish examples of wallpapered entryways to give you some ideas and inspiration for your own home.

Home Tour: Bill and Giuliana Rancic’s Renovated 1880s Brownstone

Bill and Giuliana Rancic have a keen eye for interior design, which has been proven a few times over by their impressive portfolio of homes. I featured their beautiful LA home on the blog a couple of years ago, so I wasn’t surprised when I saw the photos from their Chicago home and felt just as inspired by the design.

The home is an 1800s brownstone in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood that the couple renovated. They kept the charm of the original home and put a fresh spin on it. The color palette is relaxing and subdued with some clever pops of color. The style is contemporary with some traditional elements that tie in with the long history of the home.

Enjoy this chic, elegant home tour courtesy of Traditional Home.

10 Chic & Dramatic Bedrooms with Black Walls

One of the most timeless ways to make a dramatic statement in a space is to use black. It’s chic, versatile, and never goes out of style. It’s especially dramatic when it’s used on walls and in a bedroom, it can be the perfect balance between drama and elegance.

In a bedroom, black walls invite you in and make the space feel intimate. You can make them recede into the background or turn them into a bold statement. Either way, the results can be captivating. They’re also wonderfully versatile, whether you want a bedroom that is minimalist and masculine, glamorous and feminine, or somewhere in between.

Here are 10 beautiful examples of bedrooms with black walls to give you some inspiration.
