Modern Foyer / May 30, 2018 / Reyna Stockton.
If you choose wallpaper with lots of pattern, you will have very little need for pictures or artwork. When choosing wallpaper, don’t assume that a small foyer should be papered with an equally small printed design. Some of the prettiest foyers I’ve been in, were small ones, where the paper chosen was large scale and very bold. The effect was wonderful! The entry is the perfect spot for tromp l’oeil. Possibly a mural of a Grecian urn or a large topiary.
If you are using a pricey rug in your entry. Do what I do. Protect it with a small washable throw rug. Covering the spot most traveled on a daily basis. Then for special occasions stow the throw rug in the closet. Meanwhile, the better rug will stay clean. No space for a rug? Paint an interesting design on the floor. There are a wide variety of stencils that you can use if you do not consider yourself an artist. Be sure to use a sealer topcoat to ensure your painted design holds up to heavy traffic and will clean up easily.
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.
A small chair may be all you need in your foyer, providing a place for a visitor to rest. It also serves as a temporary place for packages or anything you need to put down as you come through the door. A narrow console table may be just the ticket. A towering case clock is always great in a foyer. Garden Statuary isn’t just for the garden. Bring it indoors! Be greeted by a life size statue. Depending on your budget you could select from concrete, resin, marble or bronze.
