Modern Foyer / June 18, 2018 / Ellie Robin.
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.
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.
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.
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.
