The entryway is the first thing your guests (and you!) see when they walk in the door, so why not greet them with a space that's truly a reflection of you? We often focus on organizing this area (and for good reason), but it's high time we give this spot a little extra oomph. Let these personality-filled foyers inspire you to use color, art, pattern, even your favorite collection, to design an entryway that's 100% you.

The entryway may seem an unlikely place to stash a collection—but the arrangement of perfume bottles in the one above from House Beautiful is convincing us to greet guests with our most treasured objets. Orange items unify the space and add to the dramatic tone.

Showcasing vintage finds in a landing spot grounds this transitional space by adding a bit of history. The row of charming theater seats above was a splurge uncovered in a thrift store by Karen of Perfecting the Homefront.

Homeowners Joe and Kelly McGuier love arranging and re-arranging the art in their home's landing space, spotted on Design Sponge. The colorful runner is composed of FLOR tiles that can also be switched up on a whim. Take a cue from their ever-evolving entryway and let this area change over time.

A giant circular mirror, like the one above from The Design Chaser, is an eye-catching statement piece that's also helpful for last looks before you head out the door.

Geometric patterned wallpaper, paired with expressive art, gives this narrow foyer from Stadshem a big personality. The entryway is a great space for loud design choices because you're typically just passing through rather than spending time there, so it won't become overwhelming.
