Modern Foyer / June 5, 2018 / Mathilde Fine.
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.
Follow your heart! You can be as adventurous with pattern and color as you desire in this room. You can get away with it in the foyer, because remember you are only in this room for brief periods of time. You’ll want the room to have impact and make a statement. Of course, keeping in mind the spaces your entry foyer may be linked to. This after all, is the space where your guest will get a preview of the rooms to come. The goal is to create a continuous flow, room to room, each space complimenting the other.
Where do I start? What about the walls? What kind of furniture should I use in the entry foyer? How should I accessorize my foyer? Wall color should never be chosen strictly according to the latest trends or home fashions. Instead, choose colors that suit the character of your home. You should select a color that makes you feel comfortable and happy.
For plenty of light and an elegant presence, chandeliers are always the timeless choice for your entryway. You can choose your foyer lighting according to the equipments you have in your home. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it. As foyer is the entryway for your entire home, foyer lighting should simply determine the overall appeal of your home decor. Moreover, foyer should be given due care for safety purposes also.
