You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Our homes are reflections of ourselves.
How you design your entry, naturally says a great deal about you. Did you realize that within your décor style, you are also setting the tone for your guests’ experience, merely by opening your front door?
Whether it’s your desire to create an entry that is, playful, intriguing, dramatic, or even classical, it’s your color palette more than any other single element that sets the scene. The colors and color combinations you select, inform your guests on how to feel and how to act once they enter your home.
Playful & Welcoming
This foyer is both playful & welcoming. Notice that due to the bold color through out the rest of the home, (coral is peaking through on the far left), we treated the foyer with warm & cool toned neutrals. We painted these tones in alternating horizontal stripes. These wide strips make the entry seem considerable wider giving the illusion of the luxury of space. Saving the more vivid colors for the silk area rug and the leather ottoman further enhances our wall colors. The wide neutral stripes allow the pink silk rug to playfully interact with the bright orange starfish shaped ottoman, giving off the vibe of ‘Welcome come on in and play awhile’.
