First impressions are the most lasting ones. Ensure that your home makes a memorable impact by designing an entryway that features dazzling decor, functional furnishings, bold lighting fixtures, and smart storage solutions.
Bringing the best idea forward Aditi Vora Nair, Principal Designer, AVN Interiors, says that,
“It is always advisable to have a lobby space as soon as you enter – an intermediate space that connects the outside with the living area. Having a waterfall or a tree at the entrance adds to the overall visual experience.”
Language you speak should be similar to the intent of your décor as Mark Bullivant, Director SAOTA, mentions,
“Frank Lloyd Wright often used the mechanism of compression and release; entering through a compressed threshold into a grand, expansive space which makes it very dramatic”
When asked about adding Decor Drama in the entryway, Ashwin Ananth from Ashwin Architects mentions,
“This is purely down to the character of the building and the “drama” of the place which the entryway leads to. Socially important structures such as public buildings may benefit from grand entryways. Residential entryways are generally better off if they are toned down. More significantly, it is the definition of the spaces around the entryway and what it signifies that is really important.”
