It’s really smart when we can be efficient with our energy and our resources when taking care of our home. Both in a practical and creative sense. Adding fresh greenery to your rooms can be done whatever the season. Garland is an excellent example. Creative spirts can put ‘sticks’ in a vase and create an artistic arrangement. Adding a fresh bouquet of cut flowers to your dining or cocktail table will always be welcome. Fresh fruit in a pretty bowl. Apples, lemons or limes. Filling a hurricane with colorful fruit is great idea. Play around for a few minutes. Let it be for a day and see how you like it.
Which foyer did you like best? It’s entirely possible to pick something
from each of the foyers and create your own style. Change the color but keep the
chandelier. Add a solid carpet but use pattern for the seating. Talk with a design
expert – they are happy to advise and delighted to help.
This is an excellent example of using more than one pattern. And it is very successful.
A geometric pattern and a floral are always a winning combination.
Lighting is probably the key factor for your foyer. Foyers often
come with a higher ceiling perfect for a chandelier. Chandeliers
add the sparkle required for the three light sources for most rooms:
ambient – task – sparkle.
Color is an easy way to update, add drama, revitalize any space.
It’s even easy and relatively inexpensive to change your mind.
Using strong color in your foyer is smart as the foyer is not usually
a room we spend a lot of time in. We pass through on our way somewhere else
but we don’t read a book there. If you love color, of course, use it everywhere.
A foyer is typically a smaller space. Add color and appropriate furnishings to make it pleasant and functional. This space is important but not used for long lengths of time so it’s perfect for using a stronger color or wow art. It usually follows the scheme of your entire home but you can turn it up a notch.
Pattern delights the eye. It give us something to explore. Something to compare.
Something to move-in close-to and touch. You may be afraid or tentative to combine
pattern but if your inspiration file is in order you already have a collection of
what you love. Review and see what design experts have put together. Granted some may
be too busy for you but others will be just right.
You might think the only pattern in this foyer is the carpet. Actually the basket is a pattern,
so is the door molding. The beautifully framed mirror creates a pattern. Altogether beautiful.
Our foyer is placed such that is makes a powerful statement.
Do you like what yours says about you? Are you formal or shabby chic?
Are you an everything in its place fiend? So you have a tidy closet and a place
for wet boots? Do you want to make a powerful statement so your wall is painted
a terrific blue, green or red? Let’s look at some foyers for the next week or so
and see if anything appeals to you. Comments are welcome, let me know what you love.
Doesn’t need to be anything major. Are you taking down
your Holiday décor? Why not add something new or re-arrange
something old? The plates above are arranged in a very whimsical
pattern that is sure to delight the eye every time.
Creating a new vignette is a great way to freshen up your rooms.
Love your existing pictures or don’t have anything new why
not move what you have from the living room to the hall way?
From the bedroom to the office?
