Are You Decorating A Rustic Entryway?

Have you decided that you want to create a unique and rustic entryway in your house? Perhaps you are enamored by things like western art, decorations that depict farm life, and maybe even the charm that you find in places like old European or Mexican villages. If so, from selecting a rustic barn door to choosing shabby chic or rustic furniture, here are some ideas that might help you to design an entryway that will please you and others who enter your house.

The Front Door: Consider selecting a custom barn door for the entryway to your home. By doing so, you will already be setting the rustic tone you have selected. Choose a dark wood door, perhaps with wrought iron or brass as part of the design just to add a bit of interest to the door. For example, choose a hammered brass doorknob for the rustic barn door, or even a hammered brass knocker. Black wrought iron would add interest to your rustic barn front door, too. Think of adding a doorbell that plays special tunes, too. By doing so, you can have Christmas music during the upcoming holidays, patriotic music for holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, or simply pretty sounds during the rest of the year.

The Furniture: How large is your entry hallway? If it is large, consider buying a rustic hutch and ladder back chairs to accompany it. If you have only a small entryway, think of buying an antique wooden bench or even the pew from an old church. If you want to add some shabby chic touches to the entryway, think of doing that with the hutch or the bench. Consider the other decoratives that will give your entryway a rustic look. For example, if you are wanting a bit of a farm look to the entryway, consider buying prints that depict farm scenes or even things like roosters and hens. For a European rustic look, consider selecting pictures of old villas, maybe the kind you would see in Tuscany. If you want a bit of a Mexican feeling, think of buying corn husk dolls that are dressed in colorful Mexican dresses. 

As you select other decorative pieces, maybe things you will display in a hutch, think of shopping at places like antique stores, thrift stores, and yard sales. By doing so, you might be lucky enough to find one-of-a-kind pieces that will add to the rustic entryway of your home.
