To decorate or add a designer touch to your foyer, it’s an area where you may be able to bring in things from another room, perhaps a bench, a floor lamp, a fun mirror, a table lamp set on a timer, a narrow table with a bowl for your keys.
This client thought they needed to invest thousands in iron balusters & tile. We updated their entrance with paint & accessories & kept them in budget so they could do other rooms too!

There’s nothing that will update a foyer more in a traditional home. If you have low ceilings, be sure to use vertical art, which will make the ceilings feel taller. Notice above the combination of concrete, twigs, fabric, rocks and wood. This creates an organic natural feel to this foyer.
The front door is craftsmen style, and the walls have a cottage feel, so the colorful abstract art with traditional furniture brings an unexpected twist!

A foyer or entrance area is the first impression someone has of your home, it’s a great place to make people feel welcome. To decorate your foyer, look around the house, perhaps you can borrow a chair from another room? Or move art from another wall? Or perhaps all you need is fresh paint on the front door? Have fun with it!
