Spring Foyer

A return to blog land which has been long over due! I have been enjoying everyone else's blog posts these past weeks while making some changes to our home and adding new inventory for spring at the booth. I have a lot of new ideas, projects and pretties to share in the upcoming weeks. For now a few thoughts about the hallway, entryway or foyer.

Wikipedia defines an entryway as "a hall that is generally located at the front entrance of a house. An entryway often has a coat closet, and usually has linoleum or tile flooring rather than carpet, making it an easy-to-clean transition space between the outdoor and indoor areas."

And foyer as "foyer in a house is usually a small entry area or room by the front door. Other public rooms such as the living room, dining room, and family room typically attach to it, along with any main stairway. It was initially intended as an "airlock", separating the fireplace-heated rooms from the (colder, in winter) front entrance, where cold air infiltration made for cold drafts and low temperatures. It is commonly used for outer garment and umbrella storage for both residents and guests."
Seems like the same thing to me. Most of the time we call it our front hallway.

Whether you call it an entry way, foyer, or hall, mine had been one bare naked lady since the Christmas decor was packed away. Since we are all desperate for spring, I decided to pull out a few pieces to perk up this spot for the next few weeks till I can display the Easter items.

This white hobnail cake stand was given to me as a Christmas gift many years ago by my younger sister and is one of my favorite pieces.

A closer shot of the blue vases. I like the blue and white with the forsythia yellow against the yellow walls of the foyer.

I'm participating in Susan's Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.
