ENTRY DUTY TIPS
• Your entrance foyer needs to earn its keep. A hall or console table is the perfect spot to capture mobile phones, keys, mail and the like. But conceal these in attractive containers so neatness reigns.
• Unless you have an overly large entrance, opt for a slender hall table rather than a bulky cabinet. With sightlines to the wall, a feeling of airiness is maintained. Tuck a couple of pretty baskets under the table for shoes or clothing.
• A row of smart hooks also comes in handy just inside the front door – great for coats, jackets, hats and bags.
