Fabulous Foyers and Entrance Ways!
Fabulous Foyers and Entrance Ways!
Even if you don’t have an actual entrance way…you can create a special welcoming space maybe to the left or right of the front door.
With a little bit of imagination…a table…some of this…some of that…you will be surprised what you can do and of course you can go more grand or in between…let’s take a look.
This beautiful entrance way is featured in the new book called
The design here is very traditional with a half table…vignette…matching lamps and sconces and then the centerpiece that ties it all together…a mirror so you can take one last look before your leave the house : ) A lot of inspiration.
Loving this idea from
An open space …a natural fiber rug and a fabulous bench which just might give you many ideas…grab those power tools…hit the molding aisle and have at it! There are just so many possibilities within your own reach.
Here’s an entrance way that creates a bit of drama. The secret for the look here is 2! 2 chairs…2 lamps…2 mirrors and a beautiful vignette. It may not be your look but the base formula might be just what you are looking for.
Providence Design suggests a striking wallpaper…a vintage mirror and a simple settee or small couch…or your can modernize it or cottagize it…or…you get the picture…the base is great and then you can make it your own no matter what your style is!
Once again the settee makes an appearance…why…because it really works perfectly in this type of layout…this time a simple table with a lamp and plant and some accent pillows just says WELCOME! Also a great place to tie your sneakers ; )
How perfect is this from House & Home…a place to hang your coat…a spot for your umbrella…a bench to place your purse and a hook to hang your keys…all done with simple style…you can so do this and put your own fabulous stamp on it!
Here is a beach version of the foyer about from House & Home
only this time family pictures steal the show!
This beautiful foyer from The Enchanted Home just might get your creative juices flowing…as I have said before…it might not be your style…but close your eyes for a minute and picture that beaten old dresser that you snatched up at Good Will last week has been transformed into a painted beauty and placed in your foyer. Then you wave your magic decorating wand and conjure up a whimsical vignette that fits your home’s personality perfectly…that’s what I see when I look at this…what do you see?
It’s amazing what you can do in small spot…just look at this little work of art…it actually feels as though you have been transported into the 1940’s…I just love what creative minds do. This space was really made their own! Inspired?
Over at The Yellow Cape Cod
there has been some fabulous make-overs and this foyer space is one. You should really take a visit over there to see all of the before and afters…I think you will enjoy!
A neutral color palette with sweet touches creates a welcoming feeling when entering this home…an eclectic blend that comes together perfectly!
How about some Cottage Fresh! Light blue walls…a place to place your bag…coat…scarf…a spot light on the family…a perfectly painted table…a place for some pretties a tie in rug and there you have it! It’s says HI…how are you!
Nothing like a little touch of greenery to greet you as you come home!
Remember when you see old chippy vintage windows…they can easily be made into mirrors!
Oh the beauty you can assemble in a little nook…don’t forget the little secret of shopping your house…you might find exactly what you need in your home to create a new space. It’s all about your favorite things.
If you don’t have a foyer…well maybe you can just make yourself one with a room divider…this is so brilliant! The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!
Here’s an eclectic blend that is tied in by a warm and natural color palette…it says…ahhhhhhhh I’m home!
Eclectic is such an amazing style. What I really love is if you want the different styles to tie in together more seamlessly…the power of paint will do that for you. Here are two totally different styles and they look like a match made in heaven!
A perfect space to hang your hat…tie your shoes…place your umbrella and more! Simple…functional and fashionable!
You know that piece you found at a garage sale…the one that you were not too sure of but simply could not leave behind…the one that you don’t think goes well in any room???? Well the foyer might just be the home for it…standing alone with perfect accents…that could be the ticket to a new foyer look!
A couch or love seat may be all that you need!
We will close with a perfect entrance…doesn’t get better than this!
Well I hope some of these ideas have opened an inspirational door for you!
