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.
And finally tell me, what you think of my foyer area ...
Hello my lovelies, its been a while... and I have so much to say, but simply no time to pen my thoughts. There's a wedding I have to tell you about, a few DIYs and so much more...
Anyway, for now its the weekend.. and here is how the home looked last night.. I love creating an ambiance with light. Colours, Lights & Ambiance are interchangeable words *wink*
Honestly!! Don’t take the choice of lighting too lightly. Colours create the ambience required, but lighting plays a very important role. Lights have its own effects on the colours used and vice-versa. Bringing in more light saves your home from looking gloomy and dark. But positioning of lights make a huge impact on how a space appears.
Here are some quick tips to help you :
Light colours reflect light and dark colours absorb light. Therefore, if your wall colours are dark then you require more light in that room.
A space always looks bigger & brighter when lamps shine upwards or along the walls.
Light bulbs and candles create a warm glow, halogen lamps and fluorescent lights create a soft ambience.
White light is beneficial for your study area where you don’t need any ambient lighting.
Using types of lamps, different shapes of lamps can also create the warmth and desired tone in a room.
We do have lights on the ceiling but only ever use them at dinner time.
I love fairy lights, twinkling lights and random lights hanging around the house. Do you?
