Idea #1: Create a hardworking entry

The dresser in the entrance is a hub of activity; it's where the family drops their keys when they return home and where they stow their favorite board games. It's also the first stop for friends, who love to leave their mark in the guest-book, which is casually tucked away here, or to reference the little blue book that features recommendations for the area's best restaurants, parks, and landmarks.

The painted chest is from Area. The lamp is by Arteriors Home.
