How to Style Cheerful Contemporary Entryway Decor
1. Make a Statement with Wallpaper
We love the cheery backdrop the geometric wallpaper provides in this entryway. With the popularization of removable wallpaper, it’s easier than ever to make a statement. An entryway is the perfect place to test drive a wallpaper pattern. If you need to remove old, traditional wallpaper first, check out our tutorial: How to Remove Wallpaper Without Chemicals.
When you choose a bright color like yellow for a room, it helps to feature understated contemporary accents like the sconces and mirror in this entryway decor. The simple styling of the pieces lend a sense of sophistication to the room, and a mirror helps enlarge any space by bouncing the light around.
Adding plants to a room always works no matter your preferred style. Eucalyptus branches in a ceramic vase combined with a small, potted fern create lovely accents on this entryway console table. If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t hesitate to opt for fake greenery.
The anchor of this contemporary entryway is the console table. Clean lines and solid architecture make it both functional and visually appealing. Add a stool that fits underneath the table so it’s easy to pop your shoes on and off as you come and go.

You can never have enough storage baskets, right? We certainly don’t think so! In our opinion, the versatility of woven baskets knows no bounds. They’re the perfect choice for an entryway like this one. And when you’re storing shoes in the basket, having a stool there as well gives you a seat for removing or tying shoes.

A small rug in an entryway catches dirt and protects the floor from everyday wear and tear. Stain resistant and easy to clean, natural fiber rugs, such as seagrass and jute, are great in high traffic areas like an entryway. In this entryway, a natural fiber rug also coordinates well with the woven storage baskets.
Last but not least, don’t overlook the color impact you can achieve with the front door. The door’s yellow paint corresponds perfectly with the wallpapered entryway creating a great cohesive flow. Plus, who wouldn’t love coming home to a bright, cheerful front door every day? You could also use these paint colors to paint a wallpaper-esque pattern on the wall for perfect match!
