Modern Foyer / April 15, 2018 / Genesis Nobles.
Pick a Palette - Paint is a great way to set the entry hall apart from the adjoining rooms and can also act as the jumping-off point for the furniture and accessories in that space. Pulling in touches of the wall color as part of your entryway vignette makes for an especially pulled-together look. Carve Out an Entryway - If a home’s architecture doesn’t include an obvious area for an entry, establish one with a substantial piece of furniture, such as a chest, to anchor the space. Add a single side chair and you’ve got an instant entryway with a place to sit to take off your shoes.
Though you make your choice of style too well, you might go wrong with the dimensions. A very useful tip to choose the right sized chandelier is - add the length and width of your foyer and the number you get should be the diameter of your entryway chandelier! Also, remember that the fixture should be fixed at least seven feet above your floor. As they play a major role in your home decoration, it is good to select them after much analysis.
I would also suggest a pair of occasional chairs to flank the chest of drawers. I love to group, silver candlesticks on foyer a table. A large crystal compote placed on any foyer furniture piece looks fascinating. In the Spring, fill it with fresh flowers…Summertime it can be filled with loads of seashells…Fall, potpourri with your favorite scent…Christmas, fill it with beautiful sparkling ornaments and in between seasons it will look dazzling all by itself.
The foyer is the room that greets you as soon as you step through the front door. This is the first space and sometimes the only space guests see of your home, yet often foyers or entryways are neglected. This strikes me as odd. Somehow, I always think of the foyer as one of the most important rooms in the home. The foyer is usually where first impressions are made.
