Modern Foyer / April 3, 2018 / Reyna Stockton.
Your entryway is the first thing you (and your guests!) see upon arrival, so ensure it makes a lasting impression. Whether you have a grand entry hall or a makeshift foyer nook, there’s plenty you can do to make the space your own. Read on for a few of our favorite ways to decorate this all-important spot—and get inspired to give your own entryway a stylish refresh.
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.
Foyer chandeliers can be used in both spacious and smaller rooms. These types of lighting fixtures are designed in such a way that a particular style may appear to enhance the space while another can create an opposite impact. Houses lacking a spacious entrance can greatly improve the look of it by hanging a foyer chandelier.
In a small foyer maximize the light and make a tight area feel less cramped with a floor to ceiling mirror. Your foyer may be a tiny space with only a coat closet and no place to hang a mirror. So why not mirror the closet door! This will make your space appear larger. Depending on how your closet door is positioned, it may double a gorgeous view of the outdoors.
