One of my favorite spaces to decorate is foyers. They welcome your guests into your home, and it gives them a snapshot of whats to come. If done right, your guests will be intrigued and eager to explore!

This post focuses on fabulous foyers. Creating a welcoming entry, whether it be a foyer or entry hall, sets an inviting tone for your guests and a pleasant greeting to you whenever you come home. A few key pieces like a console table or dresser, a chair, a rug, a mirror, and of course, gorgeous lighting can make your foyer feel fabulous.

A crisp, clean foyer with chic furnishings and wallpaper greets friends and family in this traditional home. The blue table lamp adds a spot of color, while the white chandelier adds texture.
A pair of lamps on a console table is a classic arrangement for a foyer. Recessed lighting creates additional ambient lighting for the foyer.
A foyer can be a great place to add bold color and patterns in your decor as this is a space you don’t spend a lot of time in. Wall sconces are a good choice for both ambient and task lighting in addition to a pendant lights or chandeliers.
An elaborate wall mural sets this foyer apart from a typical entry hall. Clear glass shades on the wall sconce do not distract from the mural but provide light in the evening. The mirror helps accentuate the light from the table lamp.

A double height entry requires large scale furnishings and lighting to fill the space and create an impact. Love the oversized, elegant chandelier.

Built ins and custom storage can turn a small space into a great space. The recessed lighting adds drama to the nooks as well as providing ambient lighting for the foyer.
