Make an Entrance

Posted on 20 November 2014

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 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.

Colors energize and instantly create an engaging and inviting space.

High contrast creates strong, dynamic visual impact. Dark walls with pops of white or white walls with pops of colors create a refreshing space.

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.
