This is not a picture of my foyer but it is from a house around the corner that is the exact same layout. The foyer is in the center of the house and large. To left is the dining room, to the right is the "visiting room", the front stairs are there and then to the back it goes into the kitchen, family room, etc.
Right now I just have a round table in the center and some artwork on the walls that is in keeping with the Victorian era of the home. I keep fresh flowers there when I am having guests but otherwise it is empty. To give you a better feel for the space, it is large enough for 4 round top tables with seating for 8 at each table.
What can I do to make it feel warm and inviting as soon as people come through the door? I am happy with the curent paint color which is like coffee with 3 creams. LOL
