What Houzz contributors are saying:
The portrait here is hung in the foyer, right by the French doors. The idea is lovely: Anyone leaving the house gets an opportunity to enjoy this portrait. It's a prominent placement, but out of the way of the main rooms. And it's also nice that it stands alone on that wall, as opposed to being mixed in a salon style grouping.
Bench. Having a bench to rest against while pulling on boots or strapping up shoelaces is much more comfortable than attempting a balancing act each day. Of course, if you don't have space for a bench, a chair or ottoman will work just as well.
This is a good example of placing your furniture first, then measuring for the rug. You do not want the rug bumping up against furniture or touching another rug in the same area, yet you don't want the rug to be too small.
