Modern Foyer / March 29, 2018 / Amiya Cornett.
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.
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.
A plant stand made of wood; wicker or iron with a luscious green fern is a gracious look. Why not use the foyer as a tiny art gallery? Designate an entry hall area or wall where you can hang paintings or pictures that are special to you. Hang a group of fine prints all framed the same. The prints will stand out more, if the color of the frames contrast with the wall color.
Increase Your Closet Space - A chest is a great entry option for those with limited closet space. It’s the perfect place to stash off-season clothes or bulky linens. Keep them guessing by pairing a traditional-style chest with a modern mirror or piece of art, or vice versa. Establish a Mini-Room - There’s no reason a foyer can’t be a petite sitting room if you have the space. Using a bench rather than a storage piece and providing a few other places to perch can turn the entry from a pass-through into an extra, intimate seating area.
