Great architecture is always fun to work with - I can imagine how new elements may have been added to this entry foyer.
|misplaced photo credit - so so so sorry - let me know & I'll update!|
New Elements (possibly... )
1 - Gotta be (guess I'm quite certain about some things... ) a new marble floor - Three shades (light, medium & dark) of marble make this diagonal pattern look as if it was woven.
2 - Color - Teal (close?) on the exterior side of the door.
Fuchsia on the victorian style settee.
Chocolate walls (looks like dark chocolate, at least 60% cocoa), milk chocolate trim on the stairs, set off with white chocolate (make sure there is a bit of brown in this white choice - it will still look white just not icy white - brrr)
Original Elements (likely... )
Door and Windows, Bannister, size of foyer and ceiling height.
Please Notice (I said please, you do have a choice!)
Height of the chandelier is at an imaginary first storey height which gives a cozy proportion to the other furnishings.
Settee, and wall decor are centered on the window and door "opening" (the width of their combined dimensions). This design fills the proportion of the foyer floor (that rectangular space with the marble weave).
Starburst mirror is centered on the end wall further emphasizing the foyer seating area.
Mix ornate pieces like the chandelier, settee and wall shelves WITH modern abstract paintings, tiger stripe pillows and the "on trend" starburst mirror.
So much for keeping it simple ....stupid got carried away! (It happens.)
Cheers! Linda :-)
