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.
In every home, the foyer or entryway gives the first right impression of your entire home. It is perfectly fine if you do not spend a fortune or so much time in decorating your foyers. However, spending less time in finding the right foyer lighting can save your foyer from being overlooked. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it.
