Inspired by Robin’s foyer, I was delighted to stumble upon 21 tips from Real Simple on enhancing an entryway. A few ideas especially hit the nail on the head in my book…
Engage visitors immediately by creating an eye-catching wall display. Here, unused pieces of wallpaper are framed eclectically.
Position a mirror to catch the light and bring the sun into a darker hallway. Paint the mirror a clean, crisp white for added brightness. (I like the white mirror. It looks a bit familiar…)
If you have a little nook in the foyer, tuck in a table and a chair (or even just a chair) to give it a cozier feel.
A table lamp casts an inviting glow, too. Keep the base slim so the lamp doesn’t feel overwhelming, especially on a slender console table.
