If you’re feeling the urge to make your home ready for the harvest, start with where your guests get a first impression: the entryway. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to transform your space with fall-tastic accessories like faux fur accents, autumn-scented candles and the ever-important mirror. You might not have room for all these essentials, but even a few will turn your foyer into a warm and hospitable space (even if it’s really more like a made-over hallway). Scroll on to see how we’d style the front hall for a boho-chic home, minimalist abode and preppy space.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC FOYER
Your entryway is the first chance for people to see your personality, so if you’re boho to the core, own it with a nature-inspired color palette. Create a friendly and inviting atmosphere with a few quirky accessories, like a faux fur stool, a kilim rug and a few hanging plants. Brighten up the space with a lovely diffuser, and spell out a cheeky message on a trendy letter board.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMALIST FOYER
Even if you’re a minimalist, a narrow table is a foyer essential. You’ll use yours as a place to drop mail, bags and packages, so keep a tray on hand to help corral the clutter. Accessorize the table with a chic lamp, clock or candle to set the mood for your guests. If you have enough room, set up a leather chair (complete with cushions, of course) where guests can sit and take off their shoes.

HOW TO DECORATE A PREPPY FOYER
You know what? Forget guests — your foyer is the first thing YOU see when you come home, so make sure it’s a space that makes you happy. If pink and preppy brings a smile to your face, add flair to your entryway with a quirky mirror, a colorful upholstered bench and a small side table to catch your keys and sunglasses. No matter how small your space is, you’ll always have room for a fun piece of artwork and a good-smelling candle.
