Modern Foyer / June 4, 2018 / Morgan Braden.
Build a Working Way Station - Your entry is the first line of defense when it comes to keeping muddy shoes out of the living room. Supplying ample storage for shoes, gloves, and other essentials will keep the rest of your home looking pristine, no matter the season. Put Passions on Display - Consider your entry a chance to message to guests from the minute they walk in what matters most to you. Books, artwork, and favorite objects are always great additions to the space, regardless of whether it’s a grand entry or an apartment nook.
For plenty of light and an elegant presence, chandeliers are always the timeless choice for your entryway. You can choose your foyer lighting according to the equipments you have in your home. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it. As foyer is the entryway for your entire home, foyer lighting should simply determine the overall appeal of your home decor. Moreover, foyer should be given due care for safety purposes also.
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.
Use an oversized urn with a sprawling palm tree. A 19th century Victorian Hall Tree in the right home would be beautiful and functional. An antique store would be the best place to look for a piece like this or better yet an auction or estate sale. Use a pair of corbels topped with marble or a pair of iron supports topped with glass for a shelf to hold a vase of flowers, keys and mail.
