First impressions count, whether you are meeting new people or welcoming old friends to your home. A front door covered by a rusty screen door, or a dark and cluttered foyer, can give a negative vibe to your home's introduction that may not be offset by your remodeled kitchen or magazine-perfect living room.
Once guests are inside, Ms. Stewart said, the foyer needs to have something notable to add a little drama to the space.
"You need to find a way to organize your foyer to accommodate whatever you need to keep there," Ms. Stewart said. "I found this great bamboo hall tree for the foyer with the painted faux rug that holds the homeowner's hats and coats. I'm not a fan of built-in organizers. I think it's more fun to do something funky, to find something eccentric and yet pleasing to the eye."
