A Dramatic Entrance

A Dramatic Entrance

There may not be a lot to this space,  but what there is, we LOVE!  This is a great example of how a few grand gestures can really make a room.  What makes this entry foyer by so dramatic?

  • The orange ceiling of course!  This brave interior designer has put bright orange grasscloth wallpaper on the ceiling instead of doing the predictable feature wall.
  • The contrast – you will never go wrong with a strong black and white theme mixed in with splash of intense colour,  and don’t be afraid to mix very dark brown woods with the black, it keeps it rich.
  • Bold pattern – The modern fabric on these traditional chairs by Marimekko is both modern and large in scale, but the chairs are relatively small…the combination is unexpected and fun.
  • Right size right place – The large mirror and slim furniture is the perfect way to open up the narrow space and make it seem larger.
  • Lighting. – Entryways are great place for a statement chandelier.  This one does the added job of  bridging the gap between the modern and traditional themes of the house.

To get the look, Eco Chic has a range of great grasscloth wallpaper.  Their Santa Barbara Console Table has a similar look, but for a really slim console, perfect in a tight space,  check out the Console Page  They also have some nice big mirrors and for  black and white artwork check out Paper Cartel.  The Chloe chairs have a striking black and white fabric and are nice and petite, and our interior designers can get them made here on the Gold Coast.
