What color are the walls in the foyer? Thank You. I have a similiar foyer in a 1912 English Tudor. - I am restoring a 1912 English Tudor and need help with wall colors. The home has original and beautiful oak flooring similar to what is shown in the picture, I will be using black and white granite and marble 12x12 set on a diagonal.

I will also be using black and white marble and granite adjacent to oak floors, what colors should the walls be? What color did you use here? Thank You.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Making a Dramatic Entrance
Traditional design elements, including interesting moldings, gold frames and (of course) a fantastic black and white checked floor transform this foyer from a boring room into an elegant waiting area. I love, too, the unexpected purple chair - it adds a little levity, keeping the space from crossing the line into stuffy.
Many people have tile floors that you don't ever look twice at. However, changing up the colors and patterns of your tile can make the floor an interesting part of the room. This black-and-white checkered tile option is a terrific example of a floor that can be easily decorated around to create a beautiful room.
This room defines "traditional" to me - from the black and white tile floor to the gold picture frame. Somehow, though, it doesn't feel stuffy. Maybe it's the flowers, or maybe there's something about the chair, but it actually feels inviting.
Kit Pollard added this to Pattern on the Floor
I'll always have a soft spot for traditional black and white floors. They're grand and elegant and remind me of fabulous parties.

the transition from hallway to our bedroom might be made with other kind of decor that makes the 2 rooms more consistent, if we have a gold tone cement finish floor.
