All About

A smaller foyer can achieve just as much impact with a sculpture or an oversized floor mirror propped against the wall. Using a nontraditional piece of furniture with special details—a handpainted dresser, a chaise covered in a vintage fabric—is an excellent way to set your foyer apart (while also making it more functional).

Interior designer Grace Sielaff of M. Grace Designs in Chicago, Ill., likes to bring in a "wow" color then use it in either the living room or kitchen to tie the rooms together. If you're not inclined to cover a wall in your wow color, then sprinkle it in with artwork or a gracious fabric.
