Planning an entrance space makeover

Planning an entrance space makeover

My sister always makes fun of me when she enters my home – every time she walks through the front door she acts like she’s putting her coat on a non-existent hanger and the coat ends up on the floor. She’s obviously trying to tell me that I need to do something with my hallway/entrance space.

Isn’t it funny how the entrance space is probably always the last on our to-do list when we’re renovating? We don’t know why is that since this is the first room everybody sees when they come into our home. We always thought it is one of the most important room to design and decorate and still my hallway is still unfinished.

In our families, moms are in charge. They are housekeepers. They are chefs. They are party planners. They do pretty much everything around the house.

They are home designers, of course. And over the years, we realized there is so much to learn about a functional home from, not just our moms, but mothers in general. Because most of them manage to create a functional home for their families, often regardless of the size, or layout, or style of the apartment.

The statements we chose to share with you, are the ones that differ from the things we’d usually advise. Because, as we always try to point out, different things work for different people, and we believe it might be helpful to hear a thing or two from someone who’s not that much into the home ambience, as they are into the practical part of home design. So let’s hear them out! Continue reading “5 things moms can teach us about home interior”
