Entryways That Wow

Entryways or foyers, I feel, are the forgotten space in a home. As most homeowners don't enter through the front door, it tends to be a space that is mostly forgotten about. Although it is the first room guests see when they enter a home, foyers generally don't get much thought to put into them as far as decorating goes. 

You know the famous phrase "you never get a second chance to make a first impression"? Well these homes' entryways hit it out of the park when it comes to making a dynamic first impression.

A detailed ceiling and, arched beautifully trimmed doorways, a statement light fixture and matching sconces as well as a painted door and coordinating rug add up to one beautiful space. The wood console table and detailed mirror add that extra touch.

Neutral done right. I love the mix of textures and patterns in this neutral entry. The twig-like light fixture, metal mirror and grasscloth wallpaper add interest to these otherwise beige space. The modern console table with its simple lines doesn't compete with the other elements in the space. A simple orchid and cheetah print box are just the right accessories for the space.

The all gray walls ceiling and doors allow the other features, such as the lantern light, brass framed artwork, beautifully patterned wood floors and metal console table to be the stars of the show. I also like the vaulted ceiling as an alternative to the more traditional two story entry.

Entry. Foyer. This monochromatic entry invites guests into this casual coastal home that combines a casual feel with just a touch of formality. #Entry #Foyer

Grand does not have to equal big. This small entry turns and unused space into a cozy nook. The coordinating cushions, artwork and wall sconce are a perfect pairing. The small table adds the final touch.

How do you make a two story entry appear less cavernous? With doors painted black and coordinating accents to pull the eye downward. The sisal rug adds texture and the tall sheer curtains add softness.

Sometimes simple is better. Clean lines, a neutral palette and accents of black create a stylish and sophisticated entry. The stone tile walls add texture and the peaked skylight add dimension and interest. The glass paneled door keeps the look from being too heavy.

Be inspired. Don't miss your chance to make a great first impression.
