Today’s post involves my most recent project, a new and beautifully updated foyer for one of my clients. I feel the entrance hallway is the most vital element in one’s home, because it reflects the tone of the rest of your house; in short, it is the first impression.
All great foyers and hallways start as an idea. My client’s image was for something elegant and have it make a significant statement. The wallcovering with a matte silver background gives a contemporary and updated look, while the chinoiserie floral pattern is in keeping with the colonial style of the home. Brunschwig & Fils is the name of the wallpaper design house, the pattern is ‘Bird and Thistle’; it is taken from the Winterthur Museum collection. B&F have taken their iconic style and have redesigned their entire collection with a more contemporary feel.
As an interior designer, the concept of and overall “design flow” is critical in keeping with the style and theme of your home. The reason that wallpaper has always been my favorite element in any interior is the fact that it can fill a room with fantastic character. Whether that be traditional, contemporary or eclectic, your home should feel seamless from the foyer all the way around.
With Spring just around the corner, it is time to think about a “new feel” for your home. So stop by The Four Walls and view all of the new Spring Collections.
And, as I always say, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”
