There is something so elegant about a classic black and white checked flooring for an entry foyer. The pattern really has to be set at a diagonal to look right. I think it's because a foyer is not a place of stasis. Rather it is a space to pass through. I think if you were to lay the tiles in a square configuration, the floor would seem too static for this type of space.
I also love an entry with plants...maybe because it's a transitional space, it feels like it should have a bit of the outside in. I don't do a lot of these kind of entrances... they are a bit more formal than most of my clients seem to want, but I really do like the look. And when you add a plant or two, it's timeless.
