Modern Foyer / July 9, 2018 / Jazmine Poindexter.
Usually foyer chandeliers are placed at the entrance. So, the interior décor should be in perfect harmony with that of the floor and ceiling. This lighting fixture not only enhances the appearance of the room but also expresses the owner's personality. These fixtures will also make an everlasting impression in the visitor's minds. They will be overwhelmed by the magnificence of these illumination fixtures. Chandeliers made of crystals will create an effect of cascading liquid light- that will bathe the spectators in a warm glow.
If you choose wallpaper with lots of pattern, you will have very little need for pictures or artwork. When choosing wallpaper, don’t assume that a small foyer should be papered with an equally small printed design. Some of the prettiest foyers I’ve been in, were small ones, where the paper chosen was large scale and very bold. The effect was wonderful! The entry is the perfect spot for tromp l’oeil. Possibly a mural of a Grecian urn or a large topiary.
When it comes to the amount of lighting, foyer always needs more amount of light as it is the front entrance. Also, see to that you do not provide too much of bright light. That may result in producing glare, right at the entrance, and this may annoy the guests when they step in. But if you have anything really attractive in your foyer or if you have a staircase there, then it is mandatory to use a bright foyer chandelier or spot lights. If you have beautiful pictures or paintings displayed on your walls, you can showcase them with gallery styled accent lights or track lights in your foyers. Accent lighting is always an added advantage for foyer decoration.
Pastel or softer colors look better in flat paint. Chocolate brown or very dark colors, I think look better with a little shine to them. The satin or semi finish will keep them from looking dreary by reflecting light around the room. Painting is the most cost effective way to give your room lots of impact. You may want to select a striking wallpaper pattern in keeping with the color scheme of the rest of the home. Stripes are great for adding volume and height.
