Welcome friends. I’m a little blogged out after all the great Roomspration happenings. What a perfect time for a guest post and after just doing the entryway a few weeks, I thought this was a fitting post. Enjoy!

Don’t forget to decorate your foyer. The foyer is the place where you greet guests and welcome family yet we so often don’t fully decorate our entry halls like we do with the rest of our homes. A few simple accessories, lighting and furniture can turn a bland foyer, entry hall or mudroom into a stylish space.
Black and white diagonal checkerboard is a classic choice for an entry or foyer. Traditionally done in white and black marble, this look can be achieved with ceramic tile, painted wood floors or an accent rug.
Greet your family and your guests in style as they come in the front door. A table, lighting and stylish accessories make this small space beautiful as well as functional.
Even a small entry can be a place for good design. Painting the interior of the front door a bright color and tying it in with a striped rug on the floor makes the room feel well designed.
An entry hall wall is a perfect place to display a framed collection of art or family photos, and here lovely antique wall sconces as well. A place to sit to remove or put on shoes is a nice touch if you have the space.
For some of us, our front door is our main door and sees a lot of traffic. Keeping this space organized with hooks for coats and baskets for storage creates a charming space to greet guests.
Both bold and subtle colors can work inside the front door. Chose a palette that represents the style of the rest of your home. A mirror is great for last minute fussing as you head out the door.
A larger foyer can feature a round table with a hanging lantern overhead and a bench or settee for seating. Storage for wet boots and umbrellas, odds and ends, is always a good idea.
When decorating for the holidays or seasons, don’t forget inside the front door. A few seasonal or holiday accessories can add a lot of festive spirit.
