Entrances should set the tone right for anybody walking in. There is nothing better than a personally crafted entrance. The entry should be well-lit and clutter-free. One can add fresh flowers with some table lamps and artifacts, or add a huge mirror, which also works Vastu wise, since it reflects all the negativity and only brings around positive vibes.
It Feels fresh and floral.
Accessories the space with flowers and candles to set it apart and always make it look fresh. Freshness is attributed to being inviting and warm.
