Make a Grand Entrance!

Posted on 01 February 2012

First impressions are extremely powerful. We all strive to put our best face forward, whether it is through a solid handshake, our wardrobe, or a friendly smile. But other's initial perceptions go beyond that of  the individual. Our home & office should make a grand first impression too, which is why after years of working in the art business I continue to stress the importance of choosing the right piece of artwork for the entrance of your space.

The first piece of artwork someone sees when they walk into your space is what sets the tone for the rest of their experience. Through this initial design, your style—the mood & energy of the space—are immediately understood. You want the entrance to be welcoming, memorable, and enticing.  A common saying is to make your “house a home.” Why not have your guests or clients feeling ‘at home’ right away?  Through an inviting first impression, your guests or clients will want to stick around, come back again, and tell their friends. What an amazing accomplishment when your space inspires those who experience it.

Just as there is no one right way to make a good first impression when meeting a new acquaintance, there is no one right way to design your entryway. Different aesthetic elements lead to different results. Begin by deciding what you are going for, and then set the tone…   Colors energize.

  Earth tones bring warmth and comfort. Unique pieces spark conversation and interest.

  Large artwork visually simplifies a space, which creates a relaxing atmosphere—making the most out of minimal design.

  Bold colors and detailing create drama that won’t be forgotten.

  High contrast creates strong, dynamic visual impact. White walls with pops of colors create a light & refreshing space.
