It’s the first thing you see when you walk in the door — so it might as well be pretty, right? There are a few things to keep in mind while decorating this compact but heavily trafficked part of your apartment or home. Here’s a pretty little foyer I’ve envisioned…
Design Darling framed vintage scarf ($225) West Elm lamp ($149) Design Darling gold lacquer tray ($20) Design Darling boxwood topiary ($58) CB2 acrylic console table ($379) Ballard Designs chair ($429) West Elm console basket ($24) West Elm rug ($19+)
1. Create a focal point. This graphic silk scarf dictates the color palette for the space and directs the eye toward a pretty tabletop vignette and not that unsightly ceiling fixture your landlord refuses to replace.
2. Be practical. Fresh flowers get expensive! This topiary is a great cost-effective and long-term alternative for those with a black thumb (you only have to spritz it once a month!). If you have the space, an extra dining chair is perfect for pulling on rain boots and can be dragged elsewhere when you’re entertaining.
3. Use stylish storage. A small lacquer tray is a great place to toss keys and mail when you walk in the door while a braided basket keeps backpacks, shoes, etc. tucked out of sight!
