From habitat highlights - issue 40, bright ideas

Crafty DIYs to declutter and enhance your entryway.

As we embrace the indoors through the cooler months, it’s the perfect time to look at how we can downsize, reorganise and declutter.

Entryways are a really good, practical place to start. They’re small areas, with high foot traffic, often taken for granted, so you can get great results for less effort. They’re also usually the first impression visitors have of your home’s interior.
