    How to Deal With a Front Door That Opens Into The Living Room I also love this idea of building a half wall for separation and a mini mudroom:

    A great use of space. Bench seating with storage. Be it by the front door or as a mini mud room set up by the back door.

I love the darker mantlepiece above the white bench. Pegs in the same stain unify the look. Bench would have to have storage cubbies underneath to be useable.

A fun storage bench in a hallway is not just pretty but functional. A hidden drop zone for hats, gloves and shoes!

With a Console. If there was one piece of furniture that is destined for the foyer it’s the console table. Defined by its long and narrow shape, a console table squeezes into narrower spaces and is perfect for an entry because of its design. Pair it with a statement mirror or work of art, then add a bouquet of seasonal blooms to make your foyer welcoming.

Clever Closet Take advantage of every bit of basement space by assigning a metal storage unit to house accessories. Restore order by stacking seldom-used items, such as glassware and extra china, into zippered bins on shelves and clearly labeling them with decorative tags. Two trays placed beneath the unit provide the perfect spot for a row of work boots and shoes

Keep Within Reach - Position a bench with an upholstered cushion one step from the shower to provide a convenient place to dry off. Look for (or build) a bench with a low drawer (or lift top is space is limited) for easy access to extra towels, shampoo, and shower gel so that these items can be easily reached, even from the shower stall.

Bench Seating - with my small kitchen that's L-shaped, this just might work to replace chairs that need more space.

Wall unit made with two tower bookcases, wall cabinet between them to serve as a bench, bead board and shelf with hooks above that

Entry with recessed niche that offers a place to kick off shoes or drop off a bag. A coat closet on each side ensures clutter stays hidden from sight, maintaining the clean look of the entry. Dark slate tile provides a nice contrast to the white woodwork, boasts ample traction, and conceals any dirt left behind from shoes.

La Dolce Vita: House Tour: Lauren Gelb Weisbarth - love the millwork and ceiling paint.

Gourds in all shapes and sizes add some fall fun to this entryway! More fall decorating:

Had one just like this in a house we once lived in - I sure miss it!..... "love idea of entryway....then door into main foyer."
