Modern Foyer / April 21, 2018 / Kamryn Coy.
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!
The foyer is the room that greets you as soon as you step through the front door. This is the first space and sometimes the only space guests see of your home, yet often foyers or entryways are neglected. This strikes me as odd. Somehow, I always think of the foyer as one of the most important rooms in the home. The foyer is usually where first impressions are made.
Use an oversized urn with a sprawling palm tree. A 19th century Victorian Hall Tree in the right home would be beautiful and functional. An antique store would be the best place to look for a piece like this or better yet an auction or estate sale. Use a pair of corbels topped with marble or a pair of iron supports topped with glass for a shelf to hold a vase of flowers, keys and mail.
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.
