I am obsessed with decorating our home right now and I’m super anxious to have everything I want done! I’ve been looking at our foyer or front entrance and want to dress it up a little. I believe this is a very important space in my home. This is the first impression people have when they enter our home. I’ve been asking myself this question, “What do I want to portray to people when they enter our home?” There are so many options that run through my head.
Last year my small group went through this amazing study that digs deep and uncovers your core values as individuals. It was eye opening for me to see what God has written on my heart and the heart of my husband. With decorating this house I want to portray part of core values to people when they come to our home. My top core values are: Hope, Spirituality, Accomplishment, Health & Family. My husband’s is: God’s Will, Integrity, Honesty, & Family.
When family and friends come over I want them to feel this is a home that encompasses this. I want them to feel loved, wanted, hopeful, humbled and important. Our home is a house where the Lord lives and my goal is for people to know this when they walk in.
I’ve been gathering inspiration over the past few months for grand foyer’s and entrances. My home isn’t set up with a statement foyer but I still want to make a statement. Here is where I’m pulling my inspiration from:

So far we have painted gold and white stripes down the foyer and up the stair wall. They have a beautiful shine to them and my husband executed my idea perfectly! It’s still a work in progress right now but I am learning how to enjoy it undone. We also have a beautiful piece my husband made hanging up with the word love on it! It has turned into one of my favorite pieces he has ever created! The Lord calls us to love our neighbor as He has loved our church and we want to show love to everyone who steps into our home.
I am in the process of waiting, I want to add a couple scriptures over the chest by the lamp. I have asked God to reveal to me what I should put there. When He does, I will be putting them up asap!
Ask yourself these questions when you decorate your foyer/entrance:
- What do you want to portray to the people who come to your home?
- What feelings do you want your guests to have when they walk into your home?
- What are your family core values and how can you incorporate them into your home?
I’d love to see what you’ve come up with! Share your pictures & ideas.
