Foyer Warmth

What does your foyer say about you and your home? Does it welcome guests with warm, soft light a place to sit and maybe some personal touches? Does it come to life with a great wallpaper (like in the photo above, my favorite foyer ever, by Tom Scheerer) or a snappy paint color? Is there a mirror which provides more light and makes the room feel bigger and maybe a nice size tray to gather in and outgoing mail? In our home we mostly go in and out of the kitchen (thank goodness I finally changed out the counter tops) but in a more formal house, it's good to think about the finishing touches. It really does introduce your guests to the rest of the house.
