Warm Minimal Entryway Inspiration

A couple years ago I noticed that I was gravitating towards more clean, streamlined interiors on Pinterest and convinced myself that I was becoming a minimalist.

But minimalist spaces definitely do not look like this:

It’s 2017 and we’ve lived in this apartment for over six years. Time for a makeover!

My husband, landlords, and IKEA are helping me overhaul this mess and I couldn’t be more pumped. And yes, it will involve a good coat of non-army-green paint. And some purging. And possibly some cocktails, purely for motivational purposes of course.

I’ve been scouring design blogs for warm minimal entryway inspiration, and while I don’t think we’ll be able to pare down quite to this level of simplicity, this is the direction I’ll be going in for the makeover: white, bright, organized, dreamy.

    I wish I was a minimalist! We have a tiny entry way forcing us to be minimalists in this area. I recently gave it a small makeover (here:

    Can’t wait to see how yours turns out!

    • Aaaahhh, Courtney, I LOVE your blog! So fun to see you here on mine! Your makeover looks awesome, it’s amazing how much difference just a few little changes can make! We thankfully do have a little more room (sorry to rub it in), and I think my plan will make a huge difference to our whole apartment as we only have ONE closet, and no kitchen cabinets, lol! Thanks for visiting! xoxo

  • I can’t believe you’ve lived in your apartment for seven years! I’ve never lived anywhere longer than two so far!!! Love these ideas!

    • We are SO lucky to have amazing landlords!!! I was the same way before we found this place, it’s exhausting to move so frequently! xoxo
