Entrance, Foyer, Lobby... call it however you want, but this is the space that should never be left ignored. This is the place where your house greet the world... or you for this matter, and anyone who gained the invite to your sanctuary. This is the place to set ever lasting first impression, the space that set the tone for the rest of the house, giving a hint of what to expect, and this is the place that largely left neglected or totally forgotten. Viewed as very unimportant place, many builders shrinking square footage of this space to a minimum, some completely abolishing them, though nothing can be less unwelcoming then stepping straight into a seating room.

So if your entrance isn't so GRAND - make it feels like one. Here's some ideas and inspiration.

It’s a perfect space to go with bold paint, prints or to cover wall with wallpaper.

 As I pointed out on my previous post "Mirror mirror on the wall..." small places need large mirrors, it visually enlarge area, making it feel lighter and brighter. Go for full length mirrors, they will fulfill your craving for the glance of approval heading out off the door. Framed artwork will add more personality. 

Find a place to fit consul table, even a small one, a shelf would do the job too. Arrange on it a decorative plate or a small basket to have a designated place for your keys (it will save you tons of time wasted searching for them). Small vase with flowers or a plant and other decorative elements would spice up the room.

Designing entrance room make sure it's not only beautiful but a functional as well. If your space allows put a bench or chair. Don't forget few hooks to hang outside clothe or standing coat hanger. I personally like to have a dressed in my foyer, great place to keep there my scarves, gloves and all other small accessory to add last minute touch ups before leave house.

Be bold, be fearless, be Glamorous and make your places be the same!
