Please welcome the super sweet Sam (say that ten times fast) for some interior inspiration.

Hi designstILers…. it’s Sam here from The Peak of Très Chic.  I’m thrilled to be guest posting for Irene while she is off on vacay (super jealous!). 
I am currently in the midst of working on my entryway in my own home, so I thought I’d share a bit about the process and a few entryways pinned on my inspiration board.
To me, your entryway is one of the most important parts of your home.  It is the first thing guests see when they arrive, and it often sets the tone for the rest of your house.  In my dream home, I’ll have brick herringbone flooring in my entryway, just like in this picture above.  I also think it’s fun to have meaningful items in an entryway- family photos, antiques, and other tchotchkes that represent you well.

I also think a little greenery is nice to add.  Whether it be an orchid, a boxwood, fresh flowers or some other type of succulent, I love seeing blooms in an entryway.

I kind of have a weird obsession with vintage busts, like the one below.  I really want one for my entryway.  How cool would it be to see one when you entered a house?
What are your favorite elements to see in an entryway?
Thanks for letting me share a bit of what’s inspiring me lately, Irene!  I hope you all will stop by sometime and say “hi” at The Peak of Très Chic.
XOXO, Sam
