I’m a big fan of “making a moment” in the small spots in our homes that could sometimes be overlooked. This little wall in our entryway is a good example. The front door swings open here, it’s at the bottom of our stairs and is one of the busiest “pass-through” areas in our whole house. But, it was my only option for adding a lamp in our entryway; there’s no outlet on the opposite wall.
Determined to make it work, I pulled this tiny vanity (from a thrift store) out of the attic. It was originally just going to be a placeholder but the small size works. (For reference, the maximum depth of my console is 16 inches.) In a small entryway, I like using an open console table where there’s an option of tucking a woven basket or a small ottoman underneath. (We keep jackets stuffed in the basket here.) If you’re tight on space, keep accessories to a minimum and add height by going up with your art or a taller mirror. And of course, I always think pattern or a dramatic color is fun in a small entry.
