Like most Southerners, we take our entryway (or foyer, if you're feeling fancy) very seriously. Regardless of grandeur, this is the first space in your home guests will notice... and our mother's have instilled upon us the importance of a first impression.
No matter your aesthetic preferences, a beautifully framed piece of large-scale art and functional seating seem to be the safest of bets.
If you're afraid of commitment (your space is wallpapered and you simply can't bear to hang something on the wall) or if home sweet home is a rental (homeownership is expensive!) then might we recommend leaning your beloved art against the wall?!
