Modern Foyer / March 24, 2018 / Desiree Cyr.
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.
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.
In every home, the foyer or entryway gives the first right impression of your entire home. It is perfectly fine if you do not spend a fortune or so much time in decorating your foyers. However, spending less time in finding the right foyer lighting can save your foyer from being overlooked. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it.
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.
