Decorating the foyer is always so much of a hassle... These is space... some space... and so many ideas of things you'd like to do with this space. Does that happen to you??
A few simple ways to decorate the foyer :
Paint always works, find a bold colour that suits your personality. Red is warm and welcoming.
Create a focal point : a table, a mirror are simple ways of doing this
If you aren’t great at putting frames together, even a single piece of artwork can make the foyer look wow. If you have a large frame, try placing it on the floor.
A mirror also works to create an illusion of extra space.
If you have the space of overhead lights, suspend a chandelier or Moroccan lamp. Alternatively use a table lamp to bring in some light into the foyer.
No matter what you keep here, the key is to de-clutter and keep a constant check of things that can easily get accumulated. Have a key holder, place for bags, shoes or anything else you might bring in.
And if you are feeling slightly more adventurous :
Declutter the foyer area. Place a small rug or runner to welcome people into your home. This creates the feeling of openness.
Create an eye-catching display on the wall. Used frames, photos, unused wallpaper, letters, maps, poems, children’s artwork and place them on the wall.
If you have a dark walk or a red wall, a group of ornamental mirrors, or a group of candle holders on the wall creates a beautiful feel to the entrance way.
If you have extra space in the foyer, create a little nook, with a table and a chair or even just a chair (with a pile of suitcases or a pile of books) to give it a cozier feel.
Use colourful fabric on the chair, for the instant electric feel.
Using a ladder to display fabrics or a large artwork on the floor or even a large lamp, creates the oomph and makes your foyer area stand out from anywhere else.
