Tips For Styling A Foyer
While I would say the main style of my home is Modern Farmhouse, all my eggs are definitely not in that basket. I have a touch of french country, some rustic elegance [I may have made that one up but I think it sounds catchy] and a little modern/contemporary. Don't feel you have to commit to one style to keep it cohesive. Below, I'm offering up some design tips for you, from an artist's perspective. Most of my best sellers, home edition, come from Target so I figured I would give them a permanent spot on the blog! Up first, my foyer! Links to specific pieces are linked in pink throughout my blurbs.
I took one look at this console table and knew it needed a place in my home, especially after I just finished painting my kitchen island black! It's ties it all together with the color and brass accents. The wicker baskets soften it up with their warmth and texture and their round shape adds contrast to the angular space, between the table, steps and trim. The warm tones of the wicker [or any other wood accents] plays nicely off of brass or gold metals. The faux greenery helps to add depth and dimension and more texture. The round mirror does the same thing as the baskets. It's a nice contrast to the rectangular table. It also sets it up nicely to stack some frames and play with different levels or heights of decor, vs having a large frame the same size and shape to fill the space. It's all about balance! I love this small cement sphere and this candle is my all time favorite scent! It's warm and rich and makes you feel right at home when you walk in!
This was the original way I had the foyer up until a few weeks ago. This table was also from Target, but has been sold out for quite a while. The round rug remains and is always such a show stopped when people walk in. it's one of my favorite pieces to tie together the blacks and warm wood tones throughout the space. It's also held up great to the weather that people bring in on their shoes, the dogs charging the mailman and the kids spilling pouches.
This was how we had the space when we had the space set up with the table by the door. I decided to switch it because, why not...and I love it now! I have semi big plans for another diy project coming up for the wall when you first walk in, where this beautiful bench now resides. Stay tuned for that and keep checking back! The bench is currently sold out but has the "notify me" option, so I linked it hopeful it will return. If not, I'm sure there is something there that will work for your space. This bench matches the style of our dining chairs, so that's a nice level of consistency carried through the rooms. I had to link these faux fur mules too since they made the pic! Still a good amount of sizes left and they're on clearance, so snag them while you can! They run tts or you can size down a half!
These tips can be applied anywhere in your home, to create a balanced and cohesive space, regardless of style mixing. Don't be afraid to take risks and add in pops of color or abstract art either! I hope you found them helpful and if you're new to shopping all things home at Target, well...you're welcome! :)
As always, thanks for being here!
