Making an entrance...

At the rear of our living room is an odd entrance area used by the previous owners as a second dining space. We are planning to reinstate it as a formal entrance, but it is stretching my imagination to figure out exactly what it needs. So I'm wondering, what makes a great entrance?

Above shows the space on the day we moved in, below is after the initial building and painting was finished.

We already have an antique farmers workbench to serve as an entrance table, but other than that it's a blank slate.

I'd like simplicity and clean lines...

...and a sense of scale and a touch of formality...

..and maybe a pop of colour?
