Entryway Decorating Ideas --like the idea of putting windows on either side of the front door, especially when the door just opens into the room and there's no entryway or foyer. It dresses up the door and creates a focal point.
Speaking of entryways, (or back entries, in the case above) maximize style in small spaces with stenciled or papered walls in a large pattern. This overscale wall covering (Michael Devine's Fretwork) is reminiscent of latticework.
