Entree Vous S'il Vous Plait

They say you never have a second chance to make a first impression. Maybe. But, you can always REDECORATE your first impression. Your foyer. The space that greets your guests with a warm hello and gives a sneak peek at the rest of your home. 

Here are some foyers that make great first impressions...

I know, the tree is not in a pot, but I found it an interesting,
if inconvenient, idea.  

I just love all the black and white photos that give
this wall a focal point. 

Small, simple foyer, small, simple idea. Animal print
pillows give it some spice.  

Aren't the lemons mixed with yellow flowers fun?

Nice idea for a more formal foyer. Soft and classy.

It's pink, I know. But it's neat, isn't it? I love an
unexpected look. 

Country gets an update.  Roosters, chandelier and a
rocking chair right smack in the center of the foyer.

Very simple, very brown, but it works.

You can't just leave your woven tote bags on the floor
forever I suppose, but it sure is a neat look. Elegant glass table,
silver flower vase, sparkly chandy, wood chair. Good stuff.

The pictures on the wall at the far end are wonderful.
Love the pop of pink flowers on the foyer table. 

What a neat place to put a desk and chair.  Airy, light.
Dark floors paired with white or cream always win my vote.

If you have a "skinny" entry way, this could be a fun look. 
Neat mix of "stuff."

Elegant stairway and furnishings anchored by earthy,
slightly distressed hardwood floors. Elegance meets farmhouse.

LOVE the dark door and the rectangle light fixture.
A big vase of flowers makes all the difference.

Simple farmhouse minimalist look that is sparse but inviting.

Minimalist, sort-of-farmhouse look that incorporates modern art
and a bench with clean lines and metal legs.
Match made in heaven. 

Aren't these floors kinda great?

Love the rustic little table and baskets. Sweet, homey look. 

A round table and branches are just  or flowers can cure any drab foyer.

Spectacular staircase, great pictures that toss a bit of color into the scene.
Love the wood work and architectural detail. 

Double doors are divine.  The rectangle table is perfect,
and the detail on the legs and edges, make it less boring.
As always, the flowers finish the room. 

And, I saved the best for last...

Yes. Those ARE angel wings hanging on the wall. I think this
homeowner's whimsy is fabulous.
