First Impressions

Don't you just love to be entertained in someone's home?  I'd rather dine at someone's table than at the finest restaurant in town.  There is something so warm and welcoming to be escorted into their private spaces.  Here are a few foyers or entry halls.

Do you feel a sense of anticipation--what's the rest of the house going to look or feel like? 

Have you been transported to the South of France or Tuscany?  Some homes tell of the owners travels or heritage.  What does this foyer tell you?

Simple, clean and straight forward.  Honest.

Cozy.  The brick floor matches that of the front porch and the driveway.  

Everyone seems to be talking about this style of hanging prints--the gallery wall.  Also, notice that the wooden floor has been painted.    

(thanks to Southern Accents, Southern Living, and Mary Evelyn McKee.  You never disappoint.)

Does your foyer welcome your guest?  What does it say about you?  Tell me about it.
