I love the idea of hanging a large mirror in the entry way to reflect light. Update: There is no formal entry way in this house, but I will be placing our mirror on the left wall of the cozy room which will bounce a lot of light into the entryway.
Entryway Decorating Ideas --like the idea of putting windows on either side of the front door, especially when the door just opens into the room and there's no entryway or foyer. It dresses up the door and creates a focal point.
[Dining room by chairs? With wall shelf under mirror?] Love the extra seating for the living or family room tucked neatly away in this entryway vignette. And the oversized mirror makes this small space look so much larger.
Looks like my house - idea for trimming shiplap around my windows and transoms White horizontal paneling, in that cave of a mudroom. This would be inviting and look very pretty with your door knob hanger.
