It sets the tone for the space, and gives people a taste of what’s to come as they delve further into your home. Here are 10 entryways we found and fell in love with.

In terms of creating a work life balance, we all set out with the best intentions. You plan to separate the two, leaving your work at the office and saving the home for family life.
