Foyers and Entries

The other night I was watching, "Beyond Spelling Manor," on HGTV, which is Candy Spelling designing her new home in California, and looking for and purchasing a condo in NYC. I have enjoyed both episodes so far. The condo I liked best was the one she purchased at One Beacon Court at 151 East 58th Street in NYC, it was 2,090 sq ft with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.

Within the condo there was a large gallery entrance. A foyer, a large foyer. What I really liked about it was that it only gave a glimpse of the other interior living space, but it was large enough to show the owners art, a place to sit, a place to drop the mail when coming home. So many new homes skip the foyer entry altogether and while it might not be the most used space in the home, I think it is a critical space. I gathered some inspirational photographs of some foyers I am loving.

The foyer is where we welcome guest, but it is also where we accept packages, and sometimes keep people at arms length - at least for a moment. How do you view your foyer, is it a reflection of the rest of your home?


  1. These are all wonderful. I don't have a foyer unfortunately, you just walk right into the living room. Hugs, marty

    1. Marty, I understand. So many homes are built without foyers, and sometimes we need that square footage for another bedroom or a second living space. What I found intriguing in this condo that Candy Spelling bought is that it is 2,090 sq ft with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and yet the builder thought it was important to figure in a very large foyer in that apartment, and it was one of the rooms that was also important to the buyer. That foyer was large enough to have been a 3rd bedroom. It is all about what we need or want individually. You have a beautiful home and you have decorated it so well, and I know you enjoy your home immensely and that is what is important. Enjoy!!
      Thanks, Patty
