Modern Foyer / May 19, 2018 / Kenya Kumar.
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.
Hang a tapestry on an iron rod and place a garden bench beneath. The tapestry will add softness and texture. The bench will not only be esthetically pleasing but functional as well, serving as a place for removing shoes or simply a resting place. If you have the ample room in your foyer, using a chest or commode is an excellent choice. The top of the chest gives you plenty of area to display your favorite lamp or a pair of candlestick lamps. You may also want to accessorize with a small collection of boxes or any other collection. I love the idea of all the extra storage space you gain when using a chest.
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.
Use Pops of Personality - Bright accents in your entry not only add energy to the space, but they also send the message that you have a playful side. The same goes with offbeat additions. That funky flea-market find could be just the thing to add personality to your passageway. Go for Multiples - A carefully composed grouping of mirrors is sure to catch the eye in an entry, not to mention reflecting extra bits of light into the space. There are an endless number of ways to hang groupings, so it’s best to play around with paper cutouts of the mirrors until you find the arrangement most pleasing to you.
