Inspiring entryways

We all know by now an entryway is important. For me, not so much when I leave the house but definitely when I come home after a tough day. It's instantly calming for me to be greeted with order, a place to put my mail, shoes, bag, and keys. Here are some spaces that - thought might not work for everyone - at the very least provide some great eyecandy. What are your necessities for an entryway?

Love the modern retro look of this entryway. The mirror opens it up.

Bright turquoise accents on the console help balance the weight on the wall.

I love lamp light. A nice way to treat yourself is to set your entryway lights on a timer, so they turn on right before you get home.

I think the use of a secretary desk here is a great idea.

I just love the picture wall.

Totally agree. I remember certain homes didn't have an entry, one just walked directly into the living area, not comfortable for visitors at all. xx's

my musts:
anything that totally makes you happy when you walk in the door (pictures, art, etc.) Some fab lighting, a great table, and a mirror to check yourself!

all of those are so light, airy, and inviting - what's a better way to describe an entryway than inviting?!??
