When it comes to choosing a foyer or entry wall colors it all depends of
the size of your space and how open or closed it is. I am quite
conservative when it comes to a large and open two-story foyer. Your
entry is a transitional space with many cuts, such as doors, doorways,
and stairs. So, if you make it too dramatic all these broken lines will
show making your eyes tired. So I stick with neutrals or light colors.
But for a small, cozy entry you can be braver.
If your entry is large you do not want to overpower it with color.
Highlight architectural details of the house, display your art, personal
pictures, and collections. �Do not overwhelm your foyer with color but
rather keep it quite simple.
Here are some samples for two storied entries and
Benjamin Moore color choices for each of them.
Fresh, airy and clean, this wall color is so
universal that any eclectic details will work
here. Now you can introduce
contemporary classics with traditional and
historical elements. Even ethnic and
nomad accessories and found objects will
look good because of the all inclusive
quality of this pretty wall paint color.
Earthy, simple, warm and universal, this
wall color works with green, blue,
burgundy, red, chocolate and cream. It is
mostly used within interiors where
tradition is strong and you want to mix
different wood finishes and collectibles.
When white color is what you need for
simplicity and clarity, this color is a perfect
neutral without being too gray or too stark.
It looks the best in Regal Select and
provides for smooth and pretty coverage.
If you still want a more crispy effect, use it
with atrium white wall paint color.
Warm. down to earth and casual, this wall
color works great with both, earth tones
and bright yellows and oranges.
Texas Leather AC-3
The name of this color speaks for itself. It is
pure classic and works beautifully with
delicate antique gold of the collected items
and art. If you wish to display a collection,
this is a perfect choice of wall paint color.
More emphasis will be achieved if you keep
all the elements in your foyer within the same
monochromatic tones. Then your collection
will show its authentic quality.
Classic Gray 1548
Pretty and simple, this color is used with any
decor. It can be very pretty with blues and
teals. For more impact and whimsical look
combine milk chocolate shades with hot pink
furniture or accessories.
Carrington Beige HC-93
For a sunny, warm look use pretty cream
paint color that does not look yellow. It will
look different under different light but still
keep its cheerful quality.
Montgomery White HC-33
Design: Klima Design Group.net�
For regal, high contrast, renaissance look
that is quite formal, this wall paint color will
do a splendid job when used with power
colors, such as white and black. Confident
geometric lines, solid fabrics add to graphic
qualities as they multiply strong visual effect.
Shaker Beige HC-45
Black and white stripes are juxtaposed with quirky floral of the chairs and wall sconces!
Bravo! This one does not need any explanation. Just super creative and awesome.
�If your foyer is small you can be a little bolder and use unexpected finishes. Below
are some examples of striped walls for the foyer.
