Décor Board: Foyer

Décor Board: Foyer

The entry has the all-important task of setting the tone of your home, while serving to welcome incoming guests, offer a place to set things down, hang the coats and generally act as the butler none of us has. It is a transitional space that should be decorated minimally so as not to visually overwhelm the arriving guest, but warm enough to give a lovely first impression. As much as possible, I always prefer that our guests enter through the front door for a proper welcome. This collage serves as my guide as I continue to decorate this space. A few key elements stand out to me as the essentials for a gracious foyer:

  • A round center table with a lantern above

  • Fresh flowers

  • White floral candle

  • Chinoiserie blue floor vase to hold umbrellas

  • A console with a lamp for mood lighting

  • A gorgeous gilded mirror

  • A spot to sit (for putting on shoes)

What are your foyer essentials?
