Entryway Rug

The entryway of your home is one of the most important spaces; it sets the tone for the rest of your house. It's the first impression that people get when they visit your home. I am really pleased with the way our entry has turned out and the connecting sitting area and dining room (which you also see when you first walk in). One of the final touches on the entry is a rug. We've had a boring basic doormat, and I want something bolder that stands out and also fits the size of the entry better. This rug will have to walk a fine line because I want it to stand out, but at the same time I don't want it to compete with the cowhide zebra print that is in the sitting area.

My first thought was something with black and white (not too white this is a rug that shoes fresh from outside will be stepping on). I ordered this rug from Home Decorators Collection, but it turned out to be too dark and just didn't work in the space:


I am now rethinking the black and white-ish colored rugs, and I am considering adding a pop of color. The entry itself is mainly black (door and stair rail and entry table), greige (wall color), and metallic (entry table decor and mirror). I think a color that coordinates with the connecting sitting area and dining room could  work really well. So here are some options I'm considering:

Trina Turk Greek Key Pink Hook Rug

Rugs USA Surya Archive Rug

Here is a picture of an entry with a black and white rug that  I really like:

But... I think I like the pop of color this entry rug brings even more:

I always like neutral and black and white spaces, but I always find myself needing to add a little color. What do you think? Black and white-ish or pop of color?

Samara,
This is something that I always struggle with, the front entry! It is the last area of my home that we have owned (for 9 years) that I have yet to decorate! I think that if you get the rug right, then everything will flow. Good luck and be sure to post what you end up doing. Thanks for following my blog! hugs, cathy
