The Style of an Entrance

An entrance is one of the most important areas of a home. It sets the tone for what you will encounter on your visit. Will it be a home which is sparse and organized or one which is filled to the brim with furniture and "things"? It can say we are casual or we are formal. Below are a few examples with some observations of my own. Which style describes your entryway?

<span class=
Solid door, rustic floors, 2 colors, minimal furniture and wall decor

<span class=
White wood floors accented with dark woods. Art and books displayed with whimsical accents.

<span class=
Tiled floor. Symmetrical furniture, very organized with understated warm coloring

<span class=
Gleaming Parquet Floors, wool area rug, lots of texture, wallpaper and opulent chandelier

Which is your favorite?

Oh, the second one, by far! I'd probably replace the chair with something with a bit of Mid-Century flair (or lack thereof), or reupholster the chair with something bolder -- maybe the pillow material.

Thanks for the comments! Its funny I like something about each if only I had multiple houses (actually one house!!) to enjoy each! Gradon I agree if I had to pick one it would be the second with the lighting and dark framed door it is very inviting.
