What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Bench seat. Whether you need to drop your bag, put your shoes on or take a breather from the day, a bench is the perfect piece of furniture for any foyer. Find a great-looking bench at your nearby flea market or antiques store, then paint it and reupholster it for maximum style.
In a room where you're trying to achieve a glamorous feel, your first thought may be to stick with touches like chandeliers, mirrors and elegant fabrics. It may be tempting to choose a shimmering curtain rod and hardware, but choosing darker touches can add so much depth.
The deep gray ceiling in this foyer allows the extra-deep crown moldings to stand out by contrast. Given the high ceilings and the traditional style of the home, the choice to paint the ceiling and antique the moldings created a much warmer look than pure white would have.
