Modern Foyer / June 1, 2018 / Desiree Cyr.
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.
Choose a Theme - Sticking with a single, unifying motif in a foyer is a highly original way to introduce guests to your style from the minute they walk in the door. Since most entries are on the smaller side, they’re ideal candidates for an impactful, patterned wallpaper moment. Rely on Symmetry and Size - Use symmetry to create order in your entry with matching pairs of lamps and accessories. The perfect entry is a mini moment unto itself, and an oversize mirror is one of the quickest ways to accomplish this. Don’t be afraid to go big—you won’t be sorry.
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.
For plenty of light and an elegant presence, chandeliers are always the timeless choice for your entryway. You can choose your foyer lighting according to the equipments you have in your home. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it. As foyer is the entryway for your entire home, foyer lighting should simply determine the overall appeal of your home decor. Moreover, foyer should be given due care for safety purposes also.
