So many houses these days have them. So, I chose a two-story foyer for the latest installment of my “give & take” series. A tall entryway can seem grand at first—but can become a real challenge to decorate. Here’s how Jeri’s foyer looks now:
> Entryway feels “boring.” (Her words.)
> Doesn’t love stair railing, but it’s not in the budget to replace for now.
> Would like a “layered, comfortable” vibe to welcome guests.
I have to agree with Jeri. This space could use a little life, and I would do that by adding some fun color and pattern. The furniture and wall accessories seem to feel too small-scale for this space. I would use a taller, bulkier storage piece in a rich color and pull the eye up by adding colorful artwork going up the stairs. I would also suggest painting the wood banister black for an inexpensive update.
