Your foyer is the first impression you give to everyone who comes into your home, so you want to make sure it reflects your personal aesthetic. It should be stylish, inviting and organized. It is a great place to make a big impact in a relatively small space. The formula for a perfectly decorated foyer is fairly simple — a pretty light fixture, a great table or console, a couple of lamps, a statement piece like a mirror or artwork, some accessories and, of course, fresh flowers. Blamo. Honey, you’re home.

6. Something Out of Nothing: This condo only had a wall to work with when it came to creating the illusion of a foyer, and the owners completely pulled it off with wall art, a convenient shelf for keeping keys and an umbrella holder that doubles as a conversation piece. (We totally want one.) (via Houzz)

(via One Kings Lane)
20. English Country: Make them feel at home with a coat rack or umbrella basket to let them know they can take their shoes off and stay a while. This is also a polite way to let them know where to keep the mess when the weather is wet and muddy ;) (via House and Home)
