Double Up Small Accents
If you're looking for a fast fall refresh, remember there's power in pairs. Pull in two of everything when accessorizing your walls and console table or cabinet. Think mirroring silver sconces and diptychs, foo dogs and marble obelisks, or any number of glam metallic objects that add a bit of shine. Fall is all about layering colors, textures, and materials, so grouping small accents and objects like these will give you that welcoming, curated look in your entry.

Lead With A Striking Rug
When it comes to chic fall decor for the entry, a stylish cowhide can do no wrong. It's surprisingly durable with style to spare. Not to mention, a cowhide also offers an excellent foundation for furnishings and accents in varying styles. If you're not a cowhide fan, consider an indoor-outdoor rug, an overdyed carpet, or a captivating runner, which are equally as practical and pretty. One that pulls in autumn's harvest colors, such as burnt orange, red, and brown, will usher in major cozy vibes.

Add One-Of-A-Kind Showpieces
For a high-impact look, show off statement art and unique vintage pieces. Hang a large painting or even pull in a lavish folding screen that adds drama and visual height. With all the fall entertaining that's coming up, you want to deck out your entry with pieces that will be conversation starters!
If a folding screen feels too traditional, consider a large sculpture or a cabinet filled with interesting objects and found treasures. It's all about layering in lots of captivating moments that will catch the eye of everyone that walks through your front door.

Go For A Big Reflective Moment
If it's glamour you want, go for a giant sculptural mirror or a mirrored console cabinet. These pieces will help bounce light and give the illusion of more space, so they're always great in small entryways. They're also naturally versatile pieces, so layer you can mix in furnishings and accents in any style. If you've been thinking about getting a mirror for your entryway, fall is the perfect time to do the switch. Next to candlelight, they'll set the perfect fall tone with just the right mood lighting.

Play Up Bold Modern Forms
For staunch modernists, you'll want to lean into warm woods and striking shapes and patterns for fall. Take a cue from this open plan entry, which features a handpainted geometric wallpaper backdrop, accents in abstract forms, and a console table with clean lines. Together, these designs also help to establish the entry here as its own space within the larger open floor plan.
