Every house should have an entryway that announces the personality of the homeowner... an entryway that is playful, engaging, welcoming, or dazzling. If you don't have an actual entry space or foyer, or if your door opens into your living space, you can still take a cue from some of these photos. Perhaps a colorful rug--I love the huge floral pattern in the eleventh image down--or even a small chest as in the eighth image down can function as an attractive landing area for keys, mail, sunglasses.

This is the traditional yet colorful entryway at the home of beer heir Joe Pabst.
