Modern Foyer / May 29, 2018 / Reyna Stockton.
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.
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.
A small chair may be all you need in your foyer, providing a place for a visitor to rest. It also serves as a temporary place for packages or anything you need to put down as you come through the door. A narrow console table may be just the ticket. A towering case clock is always great in a foyer. Garden Statuary isn’t just for the garden. Bring it indoors! Be greeted by a life size statue. Depending on your budget you could select from concrete, resin, marble or bronze.
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.
