Entries to peek at…

Do you love to peek inside peoples doors when they are open? I do. Especially at Christmas time or if it is a home I always wish I could have a look into. I don’t do it to every house with a door open, there has to be something lovely about it first. An entry way, whatever the size, sets the tone for the home and is quite important to the overall theme of things to come. This one above is beautiful.

I love houses that have staircases in the entry, especially if the staircase is pretty too. I am loving that big art work on the wall.

Country halls are always inviting, and this one with it’s stone wall and old world features is just begging you inside….I bet to a roaring open fire.

All white and serene. Even in this thin space there I am glad there is somewhere to put your keys and mail down, check your hair and lipstick on the way out and to place a mirror to bounce some light around. One day I will have chandeliers down our hall when there are no threats from rogue toy cars flying around.

Beautiful displays make you want to view the rest of the house and so many people neglect these spaces…why? If you love to travel, show your exotic pottery on the wall or your collection of black and white photography, old sheet music, whatever your into and give a hint of who lives here.

Fresh flowers from the garden always look beautiful. I love the sort of displays that aren’t artfully arranged and have that ‘plonked in’ look to them, especially if it is in an old crystal glass, even an old tin can be beautiful.

This home screams “beach side living”. I imagine it is stunning at night with the lanterns glowing down the hall.

My favourite one is this. I can’t put my finger on the exact reason, but I do think it is because it looks lived in, not staged, the vintage pieces, the palette and the fact that is a beautiful colour. Do you love to peek into peoples homes, or am I a bit different??
I would love to see a ‘peek’ of your entry way and tell me why you like it and what it says about you. I would love to pick a few and show them here. maybe we will have a competition!!!

  • I’m with you. I used to love walking the dog at night when I lived in Mosman in Sydney – there were so many beautiful houses to peek in! Leigh

  • Yes I’m loving that last image too – in fact I’ve posted it on my blog before too.
    And yes, I can’t resist a peek into people’s homes if I’m walking by, it’s one of the best pleasures of taking a walk!

  • When I was little and my mom took us trick or treating, we’d go to all the biggest houses in town and when they’d open the doors the three of us (my sister included) would peek in and look around as fast as we could. I’m glad other people are like that! At night my husband and I love to drive around because we can see into the houses that have their lights on and windows open.

  • What is it about an entry? I think it is the fantasy of what might be inside~~ I love this post and the images are like beautiful invitations to come it.
