A few months ago during one of the HomeGoods photoshoots that I worked on, I created this adorable modern farmhouse entryway and wanted to share how easy it is to create this look. With a few key elements, you can achieve a warm and welcoming spot near any door way.
The Modern Farmhouse look is super popular right now and if you are like me, you love the show Fixer Upper on HGTV. Joanna Gaines is simply amazing! So here is what I did to create a cute entryway using items from HomeGoods.
#1. You need a blank wall. Depending on the length of the wall and the size of the entryway, you can use a sofa table, small console or even a bureau if you have the room. It’s all about creating a focal point as you walk through the door.
#2 Use metal or galvanized accents. I staggered two iron pendants over the table and used a galvanized bucket as a vase for the flowers.
#3 Mix in a variation of wooden tones. The wooden desk serves as my entry table along with the wooden stool and wooden frames. You can also add any little decor items that are a wooden tone. Just play around with items in your home and see what you like.
#4 Add personal items. I added an antique typewriter (from a friend) along with a family photo of my family. Family heirlooms or personal photo’s are a great way to personalize a space.
#5 Layer art work. I happened to find these fabulous farm prints on one of my shopping trips to a Massachusetts HomeGoods store and immediately grabbed them. Nothing says farmhouse like a couple cows and a barn!
#6 Add an area rug. Entryways are usually fairly small so a 4×6 sisal is what I used in this space. Whether you have hardwoods, tile, lino or carpet, don’t forget to add an accent rug. It helps set the stage for your entry and vignette area you are creating.
#7 Finish off your space with fresh flowers or plants.
Achieving the modern farmhouse look is actually pretty easy if you break it down into sections. I came home after this photoshoot and shopped my house to see what I had so I could create this look in my own entryway for the Fall. Yep, fall is right around the corner! Can you believe it? Where did the summer go? Special thanks to HomeGoods for letting me use this photo taken by Adam Krauth. You can see more of my HomeGoods projects by click here. Happy decorating friends! ;).
