After years and years of leafing through pages and pages of decorating strategies, one of the things that made an impression on me was the number of designers who stressed the importance of a home’s front entry.
This significant spot, also referred to as the foyer, corridor, entranceway, or simply the hall, among others, is a representation of the rest of your home with regards to style, colour, texture and mood. It is, shall we say, a little character clip of what’s around the corner, up the stairs, or behind the solid oak doors. It’s the first thing people see when they arrive and the last thing before they leave.
In addition, this designated area has been given the duty of helping the visitor instantly feel welcomed as soon as the front door opens and they find themselves standing in a space with which they are not familiar. Creating an inviting atmosphere is essential and this can be accomplished in many ways.

Hope you are not too dizzy spinning around the spiral staircase. What’s that? Need to sit down? Oops! Guess I’d better squeeze in some more seating somewhere, but where??!
Thanks for visiting.
Talk to you soon.
