Joanna Gaines’s Magnolia Home style won the hearts of homeowners across the country with many of us clamoring to create our own Fixer Upper style. We love the show and noticed that Joanna often uses four things in the entryway to make it welcoming as well as practical.
Many of the homes have beautiful front porches, and the perfect way to enjoy them is on a rocking chair with a tall glass of iced tea and one of Joanna’s famous cupcakes. If your entry has room, add a rocking chair or two of your own. A hot cup of apple cider will turn afternoon relaxing into a sweet retreat.
Joanna is always thinking of the kiddos, as well as their shoes, sports equipment, backpacks and toys. You’ll often find cute cubbies, bins and baskets in the entryway where kids’ (and adults’) things can be neatly and conveniently stored.
In addition to storage, Joanna loves to include an entryway bench where guests can sit or kids can stop to put on their boots. She usually finds something with a sense of history, to add character to the space. And a mix of materials adds that industrial touch.
Whether it’s beloved saying or simply words that have meaning, Joanna often has Texas artist Jimmy Don turn inspirational sayings into metal art hung in the entry or foyer. Words can welcome you home, or remind you of what’s important as you leave. Find the phrase that means the most to you, and display it with love.
How many of these items do you have in your entryway?
