Modern Foyer / April 8, 2018 / Gracie Satterfield.
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.
Give attention to hardware in the room. The switch plate cover for instance should be attractive. This gives a sense of quality. Especially in the foyer. If you can’t afford to replace your switch plate cover that’s okay, just make sure that it blends in. If the walls are painted, paint it to match. If they are papered, well you get the idea.
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.
Sometimes foyers can be devoid of natural light. You guessed it! Add a mirror! It’s like having a window where there isn’t one. Thus, catching every trace of light, bringing the space to life! In any foyer there is nothing more beautiful than using a fine gilt framed mirror. Change out your old lighting fixture and replace it with a new chandelier. This will improve the rooms’ light and add charm.
