The entry in your home is a lot of things: it's the first taste of sweet freedom when returning from a hard day's work; it's your landing zone for odds and ends like keys, mail and dog leashes; it's where you do your "Did I remember everything?" check before heading out the door. Oh yeah, and the foyer is the only space that absolutely every guest sees of your abode, no matter how far you let them venture in. Your entryway, regardless of how large or basically non-existent it is, should be functional and beautiful. It should provide a glimpse into what's shakin' decor-wise in the rest of your living quarters.
