Modern Foyer / March 29, 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.
If you have a large house with windows or doorways facing the entrance, place huge chandeliers in such a way that they can be viewed well from outside. Your attractive spiral foyer lighting is sure to grab the attention of many passersby! You can also add depth and character to your foyer just by opting spiral foyer chandeliers. The sparkling transparent crystals and the reflecting light throughout the entryway, look extremely flattering. Yet, colorful and trendy foyer lighting will be even more welcoming.
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.
