A Dramatic Entrance

Posted

There may not be a lot to this space, but what there is, we LOVE! This is a great example of how a few grand gestures can really make a room. What makes this entry foyer by so dramatic?

  • The orange ceiling of course! This brave designer has put bright orange grasscloth wallcovering on the ceiling instead of doing the predictable feature wall.
  • The contrast – you will never go wrong with a strong black and white theme mixed in with splash of intense colour, and don't be afraid to mix very dark brown woods with the black, it keeps it rich.
  • Bold pattern – The fabric on these traditional chairs by Marimekko is both modern and large in scale, but the chairs are relatively small...the combination is unexpected and fun.
  • Right size right place – The large mirror and slender furniture is the perfect way to open up the narrow space and make it seem larger.
  • Lighting. – Entryways are great place for a statement chandelier. This one does the added job of bridging the gap between the modern and traditional themes of the house.

To get the look with Eco Chic, we have a range of great grasscloth wallpaper. If you want a bright colour not on our site, just let us know and we will send you some samples. Our Santa Barbara Console Table has a similar look, but for a really slim console, perfect in a tight space, check out the Shari. We have some nice big mirrors as well as balck and white artwork. Our Chloe chairs have a striking black and white fabric and are nice and petite, but we can use that fabric on any of our chairs...just ask!
