If you're a fan of homify, you'll know that an entrance is the business card of the home. It's the first impression that people will get of your style as well as what the rest of your home looks like.

This is why you want it to delight and pack a punch!

Today we've put together a collection of fabulous entrances for your inspiration, but not just any entrances! We've arranged an array of beautiful South African entrances so you can see just how gorgeous local design is!

Shall we take a look?

1. The classic greeting

This design by interior designers Taryn Flanagan Interiors, shows us how a classic look and feel makes for a beautiful, warm and welcoming entrance. Simple wooden doors work in harmony with wooden furniture including a small table and a set of hooks to hang coats and hats.

Pot plants give this space a tropical, refreshing and natural touch.

2. The large wooden door

This large and voluminous wooden envelopes guests in warmth and charm.

You can also see how the wood contrasts beautifully with the grey facade.

The entrance of the home also features a functional double garage where cars, bicycles and other items can be stored neatly out of sight.

4. Edgy and modern

This entrance is very edgy and stylish with a contemporary look and feel.

The facade features two shades of grey and opens up to reveal a double-height entrance. 

The red pillars that line the entrance contrast beautifully with the grey facade, adding a very sophisticated addition to the exterior design.

Don't you love how the outdoor lighting illuminates the facade?

5. Impressive driveway

This home dazzles right from the street!

The designers have worked with the incline of the property, creating a layered garden of plants rocks and flowers. This lines the driveway, creating a beautiful first impression as visitors and guests approach the home for the first time.
