Modern Foyer / March 29, 2018 / Simone Mcmahan.
The Lapiaz Console features a mahogany structure, with its inside finished in polished brass, and an exterior finished in polished stainless steel. Consisting of two individual modules, the Lapiaz is finished in polished stainless steel that portarys a perfect mirror, with a poplar root wood veneer interior. A beautiful desk can be a great and original idea to decor your entryway. The coral lacquered color and checkered floor, black and white, are a striking combination.
If your foyer lacks architectural interest, secure an oversized decorative wall shelf or bracket on the wall directly facing you as you walk through the door. I like to place them on the wall at least five feet high or higher depending on ceiling height. This is a great place to display an elegant antique vase or urn. In a less formal setting you may want to display a simple pot of trailing ivy to add softness. This is also a great idea because it keeps your floor space free of clutter.
Just consider yourself a guest and look at your unlit and dull foyer; it’s not going to feel good at all! To greet your guests with a warm feel and to create that dramatic first impression, you’ll need perfect foyer lighting fixtures. From Foyer chandeliers, pendant chandeliers, flush mounts, wall scones and many more, you have plenty of foyer lighting options. Among all these, foyer chandeliers are always the timeless choice, for plenty of light and elegant presence. They come in many styles from modern to transitional, and they are not always traditional. Your individuality lies in your choice!
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.
