Apartment entryways can be tricky because they tend to be VERY small - if they "technically" exist at all. A couple small details can make all the difference, though, and may even provide a sense of larger space.
I like this idea for the accessories hanging from something other than your typical coat hook, but I’m not sure I could make this work horizontally (and it looks dumb vertically). Click the image to shop the look of Ashley's industrial-farmhouse entryway.
Above, a Paris apartment designed by Kalb Lempereur takes a simple dowel-style coat hook and multiplies it, creating not only a visual feast but also a sort of peg-board rig that can be used to hold up a small shelf, too.
