Modern Foyer / April 21, 2018 / Justice Burleson.
Hang a tapestry on an iron rod and place a garden bench beneath. The tapestry will add softness and texture. The bench will not only be esthetically pleasing but functional as well, serving as a place for removing shoes or simply a resting place. If you have the ample room in your foyer, using a chest or commode is an excellent choice. The top of the chest gives you plenty of area to display your favorite lamp or a pair of candlestick lamps. You may also want to accessorize with a small collection of boxes or any other collection. I love the idea of all the extra storage space you gain when using a chest.
Choose a Theme - Sticking with a single, unifying motif in a foyer is a highly original way to introduce guests to your style from the minute they walk in the door. Since most entries are on the smaller side, they’re ideal candidates for an impactful, patterned wallpaper moment. Rely on Symmetry and Size - Use symmetry to create order in your entry with matching pairs of lamps and accessories. The perfect entry is a mini moment unto itself, and an oversize mirror is one of the quickest ways to accomplish this. Don’t be afraid to go big—you won’t be sorry.
Some say their foyer is so small, why bother with it at all? I have had others explain that their foyer is so grand that it feels cold and uninviting, no matter what they do to it. Whatever the size of your foyer, you should make the most of it! There is no reason in the world, why your foyer shouldn’t be stylish. The tiniest of foyers can be made to feel grand. Likewise, the grandest of foyers can have a sophisticated coziness.
A plant stand made of wood; wicker or iron with a luscious green fern is a gracious look. Why not use the foyer as a tiny art gallery? Designate an entry hall area or wall where you can hang paintings or pictures that are special to you. Hang a group of fine prints all framed the same. The prints will stand out more, if the color of the frames contrast with the wall color.
