But this one still needed to serve a function, all the while not becoming a site of discomfort once you enter our apartment. It needed to speak to us as people.

- Purchase, thrift, or receive (for free), furniture with character. Even an aged wood bench, or a vintage dresser will do.
- A market tote or reusable bag of some sort. There is something about the site of a market tote that makes someone feel at home. It's equivalent to a wooden broom, in my opinion. Whether we are city dwellers or not, these classic (and sustainable) items do not go unnoticed and unused. While having the tote there looks good, and brings the entryway together in some grand way, it's place reminds me to bring it or a reusable bag of some sort outside every single day.

Alright, have any entryway styling tips of your own to share?
