In my teeny tiny London house, you open the front door and you are right in the middle of the living room. Apart from the general lack of floor space, I miss having an entry to take off my shoes, hang my coat and dump pocket paraphernalia. I miss it even more so after coming across this stunning entry hall, which is not only roomy and light but also has a welcoming fireplace! How fabulous is that? Picture the scene, it’s been a long day at work and the wind outside is biting, you open your front door and are welcomed by a roaring fireplace, you then pour yourself a brandy (because this hallway clearly calls for brandy) and unwind in the comfort and warmth of your entry hall! I suddenly feel very cheated by my lack of entry hall! Oh the possibilities!
