An organised and tidy layout, along with lovely lighting will get your entrance the epitome of exceptional. You don't need to go for vibrant tones to decorate the space in sleek style, opt for darker neutral hues and you'll still ensure that luxurious effect.

3. Pretty artwork

Go with a pretty work of art at your entrance and you'll incorporate that fantasy aspect in your home. Choose a piece that works with the rest of your decor, furniture and accessories.

4. Fresh look

Add a refreshing touch with a fascinating floral arrangement at the entrance to your home. If you don't want to change flowers often then go with a pretty pot plant that adds a colourful touch to the space too.

5. Contemporary colours

Grey striped wallpaper and perfectly placed pink lamps work really well together for a contemporary colour scheme that is chic and charming too. Include a mirror and you'll ensure that your make-up is ready to face the world.

6. For your coat

Hanging storage is great for your coat and umbrella during the winter season, it doesn't hurt to have a place for your keys and wallet too. Don't lose track of your belongings again, decorate with enough storage in mind and your home will be organised and comfortable again. How about these 11 container homes you could actually live in?
