i agree, your entry can set an impression for the rest of the home. Problem is, i have never had an entrance that i can add much more than a small piece of art or a mirror. No room for a bench, shelf, abosolutely nothing and im always racking my brain trying to come up with something that adds a wow factor. In the home we are in now the entrance pretty much opens into the living room, and im still striving to make a hugh impact on the wall where my chair and drum stool is as that is what you see when you first walk in, but i have yet to achieve that...lol these entries you posted are a dreamthanks for sharing yet another good posthugsjanet
* Simply super-dreamy foyers, Vicky! * XO, Linda
Oooh, I like the second one...with the staircase that looks like it's in an historic home! The entry/foyer is one of my most favorite rooms in a home...sooooo important...couldn't agree more! Susan
(So OK, nobody "ASKED", buuuut, I'll take the "breathing space" in the first n' last ones! THANKS!!!)~~~
~~~ (OOPS! I just missed you, Susan!!! Dang it all!!! Wish we could meet up for a cuppa!!!)~~~
I live in a very old house, the front door opens right into the living room, most everyone uses our back door, there is just a small alcove, but the mudroom/laundry room is right there with place to put your belongings and hang your jacket, plus send dogs with wet or muddy feet to be cleaned before decending on the rest of the house
I was just woring on my tonight! It's always changing!
I meant "working"...=)
Okay lady you must be psychic as just yesterday I took a photo of my foyer area, and thought - - - - - - - - - - - (Honest I did!)I particularly like the last one.
interesing, I enjoyed this post I certainly always want to see what's going on behind the front door! Sarah

I completely agree with you Vicky! Love this post and your insight. I'm working on an entryway for a client right now. I can't get her to get on my "bandwagon" so I'm going to sent her to your blog. Oops! Maybe not, now that I've commented. I'll just show her the pics and give her your advice! Love it. You always read my mind! How do you do that?I have a garden question for you. I have an Annabelle Hydrangea that needs to be moved and divided. When should I do that? It is still in the ugly winter stage right now.Thanks, Carol
O.K. my little hallway would fit in those 3 times..stunning as always my friend, never a shortage of inspiration at your place!!
carol, You can move the plant if you take enough dirt with it. BUT YOU CAN NOT DIVIDE A HYRANGEA!!! You can start a new plant from a peice of the old plant.
You crack me up hoping for some foyer pics! I'm still working on it, and then I'll post! Just for you!
Ooohhhh, I love the second picture! Great post Vicky! ♥ Diane
I am STILL working on mine....just need the right mirror..!
I so need to address my own entry.Michelle
Thanks Vicky! I guess a hydrangea isn't anything like a hosta, huh?
How true! I think I like the third the best. Altho, the second one tugged at me a bit. What an easy and fun space to transform, right?! Start there and continue....Nice post, -susan
Thanks for the tips. We currently don't have a table at the entryway but I did place some mirrors on the wall, artwork, shelves, etc. If we were going to live there for a longer period of time I would definitely add some other pieces.
I agree with what you posted. It's interesting for me to visit my friends and some people's houses. And the first thing that I notice is their entry - how it looks. If it has fine designs, I would love to go back for another visit. My wife and I are doing some renovations in the house, starting with the front and kitchen doors (St. Louis home). And we found this replacement windows (St. Louis area) which are all great! Anyway, thanks for the tip.
