In case you missed it, the Victoria Beckham birthday party photos are making the rounds on Instagram. These snaps not only capture a star-studded celebration but the gorgeous entryway of VB's Hyde Park, London, home. 

Before ringing in her 50th, the designer and Spice Girl gathered her family for snaps in her sophisticated hallway, showcasing a gorgeous black mirror and stunning chandelier. We asked our design experts how to recreate the swoon-worthy style, including mirror options, plant tips and functional pieces to make this work for you.

Take inspiration from VB's home when working in your small entryway mirror ideas, and let our interior pros help you nail Victoria's chic interior style.

Regardless of whether you have a big space to work with, or are in need of small entryway ideas, the intimate pre-party photos from Victoria's birthday bash are a masterclass in channeling bold but minimalist luxe vibes. 

"For a striking look in your front entryway, go for a less is more approach like Victoria," says Emily Lambe, deputy editor at Real Homes. "She embraces clean lines with a black mirror frame, contrasting the white molding on the wall."

Emily is the deputy digital editor at Real Homes, and a pro at finding the latest decor trends, inspirational ideas, and the budget-friendly small space buys. She lives in a small Victorian apartment and makes the most of her compact space with accent pieces. When she's not writing, she's usually doing yoga, eating chocolate, or working on her skincare routine.

1. Take a minimalist approach

There's a bold statement piece at the heart of Victoria's space, brought to life by embracing minimalist entryway ideas and letting the accents like her mirror and chandelier speak for themselves. 

In small spaces in particular, we know less really is more and a pared back look with a few key statement pieces will help welcome guests into a beautiful, impactful yet uncluttered entryway.

RH's deputy editor Emily has some more small-space friendly ideas to bring Victoria's style into your home. 

She says, "Add balance with two wall sconces on either side, then add some greenery to break up the monochrome look. The result will look bold while still somewhat understated and minimal."

2. Get creative with lighting

Small entryway lighting mistakes can throw off the whole feng shui of the space, and you don't want to ruin the ambiance. Carefully choose where you're putting your light source to make a great first impression when guests arrive. 

"I like to hang entryway mirrors opposite the door, as this reflects plenty of light into the space — a great way to make a small entryway look bigger," says Eve Smallman, staff trends writer at Real Homes. "You can place a console table underneath it with indoor plants like Victoria has to make it even more of a focal point."

Should you not be working with much in the way of space, you can also get small shelving units for your favorite plant babies.

"If you have a smaller area without much floor space, you can hang open wall shelves on either side with plants on for a similar effect," Eve adds. 

The niffgaff Mail and Key Holder Shelf on Amazon is a good starting point and we particularly love how it's not only stylish, but multifunctional with space for decor as well as keys, coats and more. The sleek matte black color will keep the VB minimalist look going without overwhelming the space.

Interior designer Nina Lichtenstein says, "Position the mirror strategically to maximize natural light and create the illusion of space. Placing it opposite a window or a light source can brighten up your entryway and make it feel more open. Notice how Victoria’s mirror reflects a gorgeous chandelier."

When Nina Lichtenstein designs a home, it is more than just a house. It is a haven tailored to a family's distinctive tastes, rituals, gatherings, and long-term dreams. It is a nest from which to launch lives and make memories for generations to come. Her use of diverse textures and elegant blends of stone, wood, and other natural materials are part of her signature style.

3. Go the DIY route

From mirror tricks to plant additions, there are plenty of DIY small entryway ideas to zhush up your space à la Victoria. 

"Victoria’s mirror has beautiful intricate detailing around the frame, which gives it a striking look," Eve notes. "You could DIY this yourself by painting a vintage mirror in a glossy black."

Try a quart of Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover Gloss Black General Purpose Paint from Home Depot, which is a fast-drying, super smooth latex paint. The bump free result will your space look like a celebrity home without the Hollywood price tag.

4. Pay attention to color

What works particularly well in Victoria's home is the contrast of the mirror with the rest of the space, proving why color choices are so important. 

"Whatever mirror you choose, opting for a neutral wall base like Victoria has is a smart move, as this will allow your bold mirror to really pop," Eve adds. 

It'll also make sure a guest's attention will instinctively move to the focal point you've set up in your entryway. The pictures taken ahead of the Victoria Beckham birthday party prove this point. Even with her lovely family lined up and smiling for the camera, your attention is drawn to the beautiful surroundings of her home. Bingo!

5. Keep function in mind

Ensure that your entryway mirror serves a purpose beyond aesthetics," Nina says. "Use it for last-minute outfit checks before heading out, or consider placing a small basket or hooks nearby for storing everyday essentials like umbrellas or hats."

What to shop

According to Eve, the Gleaming Primrose Mirror in Antique Black from Anthropologie is highly rated by shoppers and is always all over Instagram feeds, if you don't want to go the DIY painting route. 

And it's no wonder the piece is one of Anthropologie's all-time bestselling styles. It has ornate yet dainty detailing, is wide enough to make a big impact in your small space and we love the fact each piece is handcrafted, making each one unique.

If that one isn't quite right for you, we love these minimalis mirror options, too. 

Of course, Posh Spice is the epitome of style. Channel more styles from her London home by taking a peek at Victoria Beckham's moody bathroom style and Victoria Beckham's kitchen, a rustic yet modern look you'll love.
